Boothroyd set for Leeds role,00.html

ALBION'S youth development manager Adrian Boothroyd is joining Leeds United's first team coaching set up.

Boothroyd, who joined the Baggies last October after quitting his post as
Norwich's youth team coach, will link up with the Coca Cola Football League
Championship club as early as tomorrow (Saturday).

Dan Ashworth, who Boothroyd recruited as Albion's eight-16 youth
co-ordinator in February, will take temporary charge of the youth

Ashworth has previously served as youth academy director at Peterborough and centre of excellence director at Cambridge.

Hawthorns chairman Jeremy Peace said: "We wish Adrian all the best in his
new role at Leeds.

"His time with us has been short but positive for the club and the
recruitment that has taken place in the youth department during the last few
months means we are well positioned to move forward.

"I'm now looking forward to sitting down with Dan over the next week or so
and planning the further development of the youth department."

Boothroyd claimed he had enjoyed his nine-month stint at Albion but admitted
the chance to try his hand at senior level, with Leeds boss Kevin Blackwell,
was too good to turn down.

"I'm really grateful for the opportunity I was given to be youth development
manager at West Brom," he said.

"I really enjoyed my time there and it was a fantastic learning experience.

"The youth department has improved mainly because the staff who were already there and the new appointments have pulled together and worked as a team.

"The first team deservedly earned promotion to the Premiership last season,
but what is often overlooked is the people working behind the scenes in the
club's offices are also a top class team.

"I wish everybody at Albion the very best and I'm sure both the youth
department and the club as a whole will continue to prosper.

"My ambitions are to become part of a successful first team set up and Leeds
have offered me a great opportunity that I couldn't turn down."
