Leeds United have named one-time Stevenage midfielder Junior Lewis as assistant to new head coach Dave Hockaday.

Lewis, aged 40, had a spell with Boro after being signed by Peter Taylor in November 2007.

He also played for Hull City, Leicester City and Gillingham as well as a host of others.

Hockaday, the ex-Forest Green Rovers boss, was a surprise replacement at Elland Road to manager Brian McDermott who left the Championship club in May.
