Horlock handed U21 coaching role

Kevin Horlock has been appointed assistant manager of Northern Ireland's Under-21 side.

Horlock, who won 32 caps for his country, will work under Stephen Robinson on a full-time basis, beginning with Wednesday's home match against Denmark Under-21s at Stangmore Park.

Robinson said: "Kevin has been appointed as our full-time assistant manager and will be involved in all upcoming fixtures. He has played at the top level for teams such as Swindon Town, West Ham United, Ipswich Town and Manchester City.

"His success gives the boys something to aspire too, Kevin knows what football for Northern Ireland is all about having played for the team himself and he will bring a vast amount of experience to the role as well as a great number of contacts.

"A major benefit of having Kevin on board is that he is currently based in London, which is a great advantage as the majority of our squad are playing football over in the mainland."
