Crystal Palace have handed Dave Reddington a role on Roy Hodgson’s coaching staff following the departure of Steven Reid. The Eagles confirmed that Reid, who was appointed first-team coach in September, had left the club for personal reasons on Wednesday.
Palace have turned to Reddington to take up the vacant position with the senior side after working with the squad during pre-season.
Reddington first joined Palace in 2004, working in the academy for four years, before he left to accept a position with Watford.
He returned to Selhurst Park in 2013 and has spent the last few seasons as Richard Shaw’s assistant with the Under-23 side.
Chairman Steve Parish told the club’s official website: “Dave has been with us since first joining the club’s academy fourteen years ago. This opportunity to work under Roy and Ray as first-team coach is richly deserved and another great example of the development and pathways that exists for staff coaches and players at the club. We all wish him all the very best in his new role.”
