Following all the rumours and speculation about Dan Ashworth’s future, it has been confirmed he will become the FA’s new Director of Elite Development today.

The 41 year old will remain our Sporting and Technical Director until next summer, when he will take up the new role, allowing the club plenty of time to find a replacement.

Speaking to the wba.co.uk Chairman Jeremy Peace said.

‘Dan has worked tirelessly for the Club over the past eight years. He has certainly taken on a challenging role within The FA and will leave with our best wishes. His contribution has been a key factor in our two most recent promotion successes and the securing of an unprecedented third successive season in the Premier League.’

Ashworth himself will take part in the appointment of his successor, so we can have a smooth transition next summer.
