The recent appointment of Craig Brewster as Horsham’s director of football can only be ‘good for the club’ according to boss Dominic Di Paola.

The 52-year-old was sensationally handed the role at The Camping World Community Stadium on Monday.

The former Dundee United and Hibernian player, and Crawley Town caretaker manager will work with Di Paola, as well as coaches throughout the club, to deliver a strategy that will offer opportunities for young players within the football club and the community to achieve their potential.

Last week Di Paola set out his long-term vision for the Hornets’ future.

The Horsham manager wanted the club to start bringing youth players through and to begin forging a pathway for those youngsters to break into the first eleven.

Di Paola said: “It’s good for the club. They need some assistance from the football side so hopefully he’ll be able to align everything.

“(He’ll) set up some structure within the club. At the moment it’s a bit disjointed and no one really runs anything.”
