Former Southampton defender Paul Williams has been named as the club's youth development coach.

The 40-year-old was part of the Saints squad which reached the FA Cup final under Gordon Strachan in 2003.

He said: "It's exciting times because there are some fantastic younger players coming through here."

He added: "I know it's a well-worn expression but the future is bright.


"There is a structure in place that will enable us to coach to the best standard possible.

"I'd like to thank the club for showing faith in me which I hope to repay in the long run."
