Bristol Rovers first team coach Steve Yates will leave the club at the end of the current season to return to Crete.

Yates, 47, made over 200 appearances for Rovers as a player between 1988 and 1993, helping win promotion in 1990.

He returned as the Pirates' kit man in 2013 and was made first-team coach by manager Darrell Clarke in 2014, but is now leaving to move back to Greece.

"I will always be grateful to Darrell for giving me a coaching role at this, my club," he said in a club statement.
