ANDY REID has been appointed to Steve Cooper's first-team coaching staff at Nottingham Forest after 18 months as their Under-23s Head Coach.

The 40-year-old arrived on Trentside as a player in 1998 and amassed more than 280 appearances for the club before joining the Academy coaching set-up in January 2020.

"It's a real honour and privilege to continue my journey with this great football club, which has moved through the Academy to the first team as a player, and now as a coach," Reid said.

"I'm really grateful to the gaffer for giving me this opportunity to work alongside him and rest of the coaching staff we have here. They've all been fantastic with me since initially being involved during pre-season and I'm looking forward to repaying the faith they've shown in me.

"After seeing everything that was achieved last season, it's a really good opportunity for me to contribute to the team and thrive in this environment. I want to help the players improve and it's great to be part of such a talented set of players and coaching staff.

"We have a really good mix here of younger players and more experienced players and we're all excited for the season ahead, even more so now that this club is back in the Premier League and we can't wait to get going."
