Jenkins joins the Club having previously worked with Manager Peter Beadle during his three-year spell at Hereford, where the duo guided the Bulls to back to back promotions three seasons in a row.
During his playing career Jenkins made over 400 senior appearances, playing for the likes of Swansea City, Huddersfield and Swindon Town, in a career which spanned over 22 years.
Speaking on his arrival Beadle said: “Steve plays a vital role. It’s always important that you have your partnerships, whether it be off the pitch or on the pitch that you have someone there alongside you that you can trust and believe in. We’ve always been a pair that work hard on and off the pitch. I’m delighted he’s onboard and he’s a huge part of what we do and how we work.”
Beadle will also be supported by Head of Performance Analysis Dan Hutchings, who continues in his role with the Bees, heading into his sixth season with the Club.
