Southgate shuffles coaching staff
Middlesbrough manager Gareth Southgate
Southgate replaces Steve McClaren, who will be the next England coach
New Middlesbrough manager Gareth Southgate has finalised his coaching staff plans for the new season.

Former Sunderland boss Malcolm Crosby, who has been in charge of the reserves for the last two seasons, succeeds Steve Round as assistant manager.

Round takes over as head coach with Steve Harrison assisting him.

Southgate's former Boro team-mate Colin Cooper takes over from Crosby as reserve-team coach, while Paul Barron continues his role as goalkeeper coach.

Southgate said: "I would never have taken this job if there hadn't been such high quality management staff available to support me.

"I've tried to structure my staff to ensure we have quality in all areas and that their strengths are utilised in the best way possible."

Two weeks ago Southgate announced that Steve McClaren's assistant Bill Beswick was to leave the club, but Crosby and Harrison would remain.

Crosby's move up to assistant boss will help on the administrative side, while Round and Harrison will have more hands-on involvement.

Southgate said: "It will be important to me to have someone with Malcolm's experience alongside me to help with the day-to-day challenges."
