Jason Euell has been appointed as Charlton’s new first-team coach.
The 44-year-old South Londoner had been the club’s U23 manager since 2013 but has now joined the senior backroom management team.
Lambeth-born Euell told the club’s official website: “I am very pleased to get the opportunity to move up and continue the progression in my coaching career. I am delighted that with a new manager coming in, he has called me up to help the coaching staff continue to develop the new direction under Thomas Sandgaard.
“I am looking forward to working with the first team and want to continue to improve myself and the players and staff I work with at Sparrows Lane and The Valley.”
Charlton manager Nigel Adkins added: ““I am delighted that Jason has the opportunity to step up and work with the first team. In Johnnie Jackson and now Jason, we have two senior members of the first-team coaching staff who have a real understanding of the club given their successful playing and coaching careers here.
“We’re making sure that there is a clear pathway for the players and coaches with their development. I am looking forward to working with this new coaching team, as we lay the foundations for the future.”
Addicks owner Thomas Sandgaard said: “Jason is an excellent coach with a track record of improving players and producing successful teams. He has played a crucial role at Charlton for nearly eight years and I am very pleased we have been able to add him to our first-team’s coaching staff.
“His expertise, experience and knowledge of the game, of developing young talent and of Charlton will be invaluable to the first-team players, Nigel Adkins and the rest of his staff.”
Euell made 171 appearances, scoring 39 goals, in two spells with the Addicks having first arrived as the club’s record signing in 2001.
Hamza Serrar will take full control of the club’s U23s for the rest of this season.
