Walsh joined Newcastle in July

NEWCASTLE UNITED Head of Sport Science Callum Walsh has left the club after just five months following the arrival of Eddie Howe as manager.

Walsh, who had previously worked for Huddersfield Town for almost three years, was appointed in July when Steve Bruce was Magpies boss.

However, when Howe replaced Bruce last month he brought Dan Hodges in from Bournemouth as Head of Sport Science.

The duo had worked together for eight years during Howe's time as manager of the Cherries. Walsh worked with Aspire, EXOS, Wigan Athletic, Cardiff City and Liverpool before joining Huddersfield in 2018.

Since Howe arrived at Newcastle he has:

  • Brought in four staff: Jason Tindall (Assistant), Stephen Purches (First-Team Coach), Simon Weatherstone (First-Team Coach) and Dan Hodges (Head of Sport Science).
  • Three have stayed: Graeme Jones (Assistant), Ben Dawson (Development Coach) and Simon Smith (Goalkeeper Coach).
  • And three have departed: Assistants Steve Agnew and Stephen Clemence and Callum Walsh (Head of Sport Science).
