Chris Hughton delighted to have Colin Calderwood at Brighton & Hove Albion

3 February 2015

Brighton & Hove Albion boss Chris Hughton has expressed his delight at the appointment of Colin Calderwood as his assistant manager.

The former Scotland defender, 50, was Hughton's number two at Newcastle United, Birmingham City and Norwich City and has also managed Northampton Town, Nottingham Forest and Hibernian.

Hughton also confirmed Nathan Jones, who was caretaker boss following Sami Hyypia's departure, is staying on as first-team coach along with goalkeeping coach Antti Niemi.

Hughton said: "It was always my intention to bring somebody in to work alongside myself and Nathan. What I wanted to do is give myself some time to get to know the staff here - not only the coaching staff but also the backroom team, before finalising that decision.

"I'm delighted Colin is coming in. He is someone I have worked with before, and I know him well, and we wanted to bring someone in of Colin's experience.

"I know that he will work well with the existing coaching staff at the club and I think he'll be a very good addition to the coaching team."
