The former Carlisle United boss became our assistant manager ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.
Abbott was Neal Ardley's chosen replacement for his close friend Neil Cox, who had left to become manager of Scunthorpe United.
A vastly experienced coach, Abbott was number-two to Sean Derry when we completed our fairytale ‘Great Escape’ from the League One relegation zone in 2014.
As a player, Abbott enjoyed lengthy spells with Bradford City and Hull City, while also turning out for the likes of Halifax Town.
