He first went into management in 1995/96 where he took charge of Brentford Women for a season. The 65-year-old then had his first spell at current side, Maidenhead United. He would last seven years before leaving to join Hampton & Richmond Borough.
During his tenure at Hampton & Richmond, Devonshire reached multiple Isthmian Division play-offs before finally getting his side into the Conference South in 2005/06. They finished third in their first season and reached the play-offs for the Vanarama National League.
Devonshire joined Braintree Town before leaving in 2015 to rejoin Maidenhead where he remains to this day.
ONE TO WATCH
A fan favourite at York Road, Kelly started his career there as a youngster before moving into the first team.
Maidenhead United remains the only club that he has played for, excluding a loan spell at Walton Casuals, after signing a contract extension this summer.
Kelly had also played at international level too, making his debut for the Northern Ireland Under-21 side in March 2019.
The 22-year-old has scored five goals in 13 National League games and bagged a brace in their Emirates FA Cup defeat to FC Halifax Town this season – losing 7-4.
