New West Bromwich Albion assistant manager Rob Kelly says Alan Irvine is willing to give their young talent a chance.

Kelly feels Irvine's experience of working with youngsters, having come to the club from Everton's academy, can only help encourage them.

"West Bromwich Albion have always been a club that if they're good enough they'll get an opportunity," said the Albion joint No.2.

"There are good senior players, some players who have had success here and done well.

"We want to keep the core of senior players but everyone likes a young one coming through especially if they come through the system.

"If they're good enough and work hard enough and impress then they will be given a chance. Supporters, staff, other players - everyone knows it's good if you can bring one of your own through."
