RUSK APPOINTED UNDER-21 COACH

12 March 2015


Brighton & Hove Albion have confirmed Simon Rusk as the club's new under-21s coach.
 
Former York City and Crawley Town midfielder Rusk steps up from his role as under-18s coach to succeed Simon Ireland, who recently left to join Queens Park Rangers.
 
Rusk had been covering the role since Ireland's departure, and has now been appointed as his permanent successor.

Chief executive Paul Barber said, "Simon has done an excellent job in his role as under-18s coach, and his team have performed extremely well in their first season at the top level.
 
"He has a growing reputation as an up-and-coming coach, and has been recognised by the Football Association when he was recently called up to assist with England's under-20s.
 
"This is a natural progression for him: he knows the club and our footballing objectives, and has a great knowledge of the younger players coming through."
 
Meanwhile, Joaquin Gomez has left the club. The Spanish coach was promoted from the club's academy by Oscar Garcia and retained as first-team coach by Sami Hyypia last summer.
 
Barber added, "We thank Joaquin for his hard work over the past few years with the academy and first team, and wish him well for his future career."
