Kemp and Jewell in as Pulis goes for old and new

Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

TONY PULIS has con­firmed the ap­point­ment of Paul Jewell and Dave Kemp as his joint West Brom as­sis­tants.

And Gerry Fran­cis and goal­keeper coach Carlo Nash will fol­low them into the Hawthorns later this week.

Scouser Jewell, 50, has been out of work since leav­ing Ip­swich in 2012, while Kemp is Pulis’ long-term aide.

Pulis said: “I don’t know what I’ve done to suf­fer Kempy again, but I sup­pose I will have to put up with him!

“But the truth is that we have a work­ing re­la­tion­ship which I value very highly.

“He knows what I want with­out even hav­ing to ask these days.

“I have known Paul a long time. We got to know each other on coach­ing cour­ses, as well as in op­po­si­tion.

EX­PE­RI­ENCE: Paul Jewell Kelly and Dean Kiely were axed on Mon­day.

And Pulis added: “It is never a pleas­ant task mak­ing changes be­cause it al­ways means some fel­low pro­fes­sion­als have to leave the club.

“I would say that while I only worked with Keith, Dean and Rob for a short time, they im­pressed me as top lads who I wish well for the fu­ture.”
