INTRODUCING DAN ASHWORTH: A PROVEN TRACK RECORD | AN EMPHASIS ON YOUTH | A EYE FOR TALENT | HARD WORKING AND AMBITIOUS | A VERY GOOD MOVE

Hello and welcome to The Everything is Black and White Podcast. It's time to have a look at Newcastle United's new Sporting Director - Dan Ashworth.

The former Brighton and England man has finally been appointed - months after resigning his post at Brighton. He had been on gardening leave since February and there were fears he would not be able to take up his role at NUFC until November! But as it is, he has been appointed and pending Premier League approval will be working at the club very soon.

To get the low down on Ashworth, podcast host Andrew Musgrove spoke Brighton reporter Richie Mills from Sussex Live. Richie provides all the insight - and why NUFC fans should be very happy with the appointment.
