Written by Training Ground Guru — October 16, 2023
GAVIN LEVEY has left Aberdeen after 17 years to become the new Academy Director at Swansea City.
Levey joined the Dons in 2006 as a youth coach and rose up the ranks before finally becoming Academy Director in June 2021. He also had a stint as interim Head Coach of the Aberdeen women’s team last season.
At Swansea he replaces Andy Goldie, who left in June to head up the youth programme at Southampton.
A number of Academy players have progressed to the Aberdeen first team during Levey’s time at the helm. Scott McKenna and Calvin Ramsay came through and secured moves to Nottingham Forest and Liverpool respectively, while Connor Barron, Jack MacKenzie and Ryan Duncan have become first-team regulars.
Aberdeen are set to announce a replacement for Levey shortly.
