Albion have appointed Paul Nevin as their first team coach.

Nevin, formerly Premier League head of academy coach development, replaces current Luton boss Nathan Jones in the Seagulls’ set-up.

He teams up again with Chris Hughton and Colin Calderwood, with whom he also worked at Norwich City.

Simon Rusk, who worked with the first team in the second half of last season after Jones' departure, reverts to his key role in charge of the under-21s.

Nevin, 46, had eight years on the coaching staff at Fulham, working with the academy and the reserve team.

Albion boss Hughton said: "Paul is an excellent coach and a good appointment for the club. I'm delighted he is on board and looking forward to working with him again.

"He has top-level experience from eight years with Fulham, his time in New Zealand and with Norwich. He has also worked for the Football Association and Premier League.

"Alongside Colin, Ben (Roberts) and myself he will bring a fresh perspective and different voice to the coaching mix."

Nevin played for Shrewsbury Town, Carlisle United and Yeovil Town as well as a stint in college soccer in the USA.

He managed New Zealand Knights before returning to the UK with Norwich in 2013. A varied career has also seen him spent time as a social worker and coached youngsters in Doha.

He has also worked for the Football Association as a youth coach with England's national teams and most recently has been head of academy coaching at the Premier League, a role he began in 2014.
