Ellis to stay on at Blades

17 August 2010 02:01
Sheffield United's assistant manager Sam Ellis will remain with the club following the departure of manager Kevin Blackwell. Ellis' future was thrown into doubt when Blackwell left the club "by mutual consent" after Saturday's 3-0 home defeat to former manager Neil Warnock's QPR. But a Blades spokesman said: "Going forward, Sam Ellis will continue to play a role with Sheffield United." The Blades will unveil first-team coach Gary Speed as their new manager at a press conference on Tuesday afternoon.
