Dundalk have confirmed the appointment of former Waterford boss Alan Reynolds as their new assistant manager.

The 49-year-old replaces Ruaidhrí Higgins, who left Oriel Park to join Stephen Kenny's Republic of Ireland backroom team last month.

He'll join manager Vinny Perth and coach John Gill in a new-look Dundalk coaching team as they prepare for the resumption of the SSE Airtricity League season and upcoming Champions League qualifiers.

Reynolds resigned at Waterford earlier this month following nearly four years in charge of the Blues and he's excited to be joining the reigning League of Ireland champions:

“Dundalk is a fantastic club and I’ll be working with a fantastic group of players so it would have been hard to turn down an offer like this,” he told Dundalk's official website.

“In fairness to Vinny and Dundalk, they went about things the right way. They asked Waterford for permission to speak to me and that was granted by the club. We’ve spoken a few times over the past couple of weeks and I’m just happy it’s done now.

“I’m really looking forward to it,” he added. “I need to adapt to becoming an assistant again and helping Vinny and John. It’s something I’ll have to get used to again but I’m looking forward to getting stuck in now.”
