COLIN CALDERWOOD has been appointed First-Team Coach at Southampton following two-and-a-half years as Assistant Manager at Northampton Town.
The 58-year-old is hugely experienced, having been Manager at Northampton Town, Nottingham Forest, Hibernian and Cambridge United, as well as Assistant at clubs including Newcastle United, Norwich City, Brighton and Aston Villa.
It was at Norwich from 2012 to 2014 that he worked with Southampton boss Russell Martin, who was a player at the club at the time. Calderwood made more than 400 senior appearances as a player, for clubs like Tottenham and Aston Villa, and won 36 caps for Scotland.
Southampton Director of Football Jason Wilcox said: “We are delighted that Colin has agreed to join us and further strengthen Russell’s backroom team. He has a wealth of experience from his many years as a coach and manager that we know will be invaluable to our squad.”
