Ex-Charlton boss Powell join Spurs academy staff

Former Charlton Athletic boss Chris Powell has joined Tottenham's academy staff.

Spurs have appointed Powell as a youth coach, as part of a restructure of their academy following the departure of John McDermott.

McDermott left his role as head of coaching and development to join the FA in June and Spurs today announced a shake-up of their youth department following an internal review.

Academy manager Dean Rastrick will assume overall responsibility for the youth programme, with Powell taking up a newly-created position as head of coaching from Under-17s to U23 level.

He will work closely with former Spurs midfielder Ryan Mason, who steps up from U19s coach to become head of player development for U17s to U23s.

Powell, 50, retains a role as part of Gareth Southgate's England backroom staff. A Spurs fan, his most recent role in club football was as assistant to Alan Pardew at Dutch side Den Haag.
