West Bromwich Albion have confirmed the departure of Alan Irvine as
the club’s head coach.

The Scotsman joined The Hawthorns only at the start of the season on a
12-month rolling contract, and becomes the second causality of the
Premier League after Crystal Palace parted services with Neil Warnock.

The decision came after the Baggies fell prey to a 2-0 defeat away to Stoke,
managing just 4 wins out of 19 played.
The club have also confirmed that Assistant Head Coach Rob Kelly along
with Keith Downing, will take charge of the team for the New Year’s
Day game at West Ham.

Talking to the clubs official website, West Brom’s technical director
Terry Burton said,”We appointed Alan in the summer convinced that we
had taken on one of the foremost coaches in the UK and nothing that
has happened since then has altered our view.
“The individual progress of our players such as Craig Dawson and Saido
Berahino are testament to that.
“But sadly that simply has not translated into results and they remain
the ultimate currency of Alan’s position.
“Securing a sixth season in the Premier League is the over-
riding target and sometimes unpleasant decisions have to
be taken to serve that imperative.
“Alan has impressed everyone with his manner, dedication and diligence
but he knows that results have simply not been good enough.
“We place on record our gratitude for his efforts and hold
nothing but good wishes for his future endeavors. This was a decision
taken with regret but sadly driven by necessity.”
