Former Wolves and Crystal Palace full back Jamie Smith was this week appointed as assistant manager after leaving his role as an academy coach at West Bromwich Albion.

Under-23s boss John Schofield, an ex-teammate of Moore’s at Rovers, will remain involved with the first team after overseeing training during the managerial recruitment process.

And goalkeeping coach Paul Gerrard completes Moore’s backroom team.

“Jamie’s somebody I worked with at my previous employees,” said Moore.
