Former Preston North End boss Alan Irvine has been named as West Bromwich Albion’s new head coach.

Irvine, who managed PNE from November 2007 to December 2009, will be joined at the Hawthorns by Rob Kelly who was on the coaching staff at Deepdale with him.

Kelly, in fact, had one game in charge as caretaker manager after Irvine was sacked, the 7-0 FA Cup victory over Colchester.
