Brighton and Hove Albion confirmed yesterday that England and former West Bromwich Albion man Dan Ashworth had been appointed as our first Technical Director at the club as we continue our development both on, and off, the pitch in 2018/19.

Ashworth joins us from the Football Association where he held the same role, playing his part in plugging together the various age groups with the England senior side and he’s hugely respected within the game for his work, including his time at West Bromwich Albion where he undoubtedly played his part in the strengthening of the group as they ceased to be a yo-yo club between the two top tiers and firmly established themselves in the Premier League for a number of years.

For a lot of West Brom fans, it’s no surprise that once he departed the club things went on a downward spiral culminating in their relegation last season.

The 47-year-old will soon work closely with manager Chris Hughton and should be a very good link and sounding board when it comes to recruitment and scouting, as well as medical as he oversees all player levels within the club. He’ll begin is work come next Spring I believe.

That’s only a sample of the praise on social media, let’s hope he lives up to the billing.
