First Team Coach

Frankie McAvoy

First Team Management



Date of birth






Frankie McAvoy joined the PNE staff in the summer of 2017, shortly after manager Alex Neil was appointed.

Frankie worked with Alex Neil at both Hamilton and Norwich where he was a part of the successes the clubs enjoyed. He won promotion to the Scottish Premiership through a Play-Off final with Hamilton and again won a Play-Off as Norwich won promotion to the English Premier League.

Initially an academy coach, the Scot worked his way up the coaching structure at Hamilton to first team coach, with a time as academy director. He spent a decade at The Accies before his move south of the border to the Canaries.

Two further years followed at Carrow Road before leaving alongside manager Alex Neil, who he joined at North End. He described joining PNE as a ‘no-brainer’ and that he had to come to be a part of what was a new chapter for the club.
