Assistant Head Coach
Billy Reid was appointed assistant head coach on 20th May 2019, joining the Seagulls after one season at Swansea City in the Sky Bet Championship alongside Graham Potter.
Born in Glasgow, the Scotsman enjoyed an 11-year playing career that included spells at Queen of the South, Clyde, Hamilton Academical and Stirling Albion — playing more than 300 matches.
Reid was given his first managerial opportunity in 2002 at former club Clyde, before taking over permanently for the 2004/05 campaign, guiding the club to a third-placed finish in the Scottish First Division.
Next was a move to Hamilton Academical, where he spent more than seven years and guided the club to the Scottish Premier League in 2018, while also winning the PFA Scotland Manager of the Year award.
Despite being linked with managerial jobs elsewhere, Reid linked up with Potter at Ostersunds FK in November 2013 and helped the club reach the top flight of Swedish football and qualify for the Europa League.
Reid followed Potter to Swansea City in June 2011 and was part of the coaching staff that guided the Welsh club to a tenth-placed finish in the Sky Bet Championship and the quarter-finals of the Emirates FA Cup.
Bjorn Hamberg was appointed first-team coach on 20th May 2019, joining the Seagulls after one season at Swansea City in the Sky Bet Championship alongside Graham Potter and Billy Reid.
Hamberg worked with Potter at Ostersund, helping the Swedish club climb into the top flight from the fourth tier, while also winning the Svenska Cupen [Swedish Cup] and reaching the knockout stages of the Europa League.
Next was a move to Swansea City with Potter and assistant head coach Billy Reid, and the trio helped the Welsh club to a tenth-placed finish in the Sky Bet Championship and the quarter-finals of the Emirates FA Cup.
Ben Roberts was appointed Brighton & Hove Albion's first-team goalkeeping coach in June 2015, and has played a pivotal role in supporting the club's shot-stoppers over previous seasons.
The Seagulls clinched promotion to the Premier League in the 2016/17 Championship season, and Roberts had a big involvement behind the scenes, with first-team goalkeeper David Stockdale praising him for his expertise throughout the season.
Roberts then supported Mathew Ryan and his fellow shot-stoppers during the club's first-ever season in the Premier League, as the Seagulls finished 15th and reached the quarter-finals of the Emirates FA Cup.
Roberts began his playing career at Middlesbrough in 1991, and kept goal in the 1997 FA Cup Final against Chelsea.
He moved to Charlton Athletic in 2000; before signing for Albion three years later, following an impressive loan spell under then-boss Steve Coppell. In his first full season he won promotion to the Championship.
He was part of Albion's play-off winning side of 2004, but made his final appearance in the Millennium Stadium 1-0 win over Bristol City - as the popular keeper was forced to retire due to a back injury in 2005.
After a spell out of the game, spent travelling around the world, he joined Yeovil Town as goalkeeping coach in 2009.
In 2010 he returned to Charlton - as goalkeeping coach, with his first game against Albion at Withdean.
Since ending his playing career he also gained a first-class honours degree in sports science and coaching.
