Andy Reid has been appointed head coach of the Republic of Ireland Under-18 team.

Reid has been promoted to the role after a year involved as a coach. The 36 year-old replaces Jim Crawford.

Crawford has joined Stephen Kenny’s Under-21 set-up as an assistant coach.

Reid is currently undertaking his UEFA Pro Licence with a number of high profile figures including Robbie Keane, Damien Duff and Jim McGuinness.

He has previously served as assistant first-team coach at Nottingham Forest for an interim period since his retirement in 2016.

“It is a real honour and privilege to have the opportunity to be appointed the Republic of Ireland Under-18 Head Coach,” said Reid in a statement released through the FAI.

“Having played underage football for my country, I understand the pathway these young players are taking. It will be a real pleasure to help them along the way.

“I have been involved in the set-up over the past 18 months with Jim Crawford and have seen first hand some of the amazing work he has done.”
