The former Dundee United and Hibernian player, and Crawley Town caretaker manager will work with Di Paola, as well as coaches throughout the club, to deliver a strategy that will offer opportunities for young players within the football club and the community to achieve their potential.

The Horsham manager wanted the club to start bringing youth players through and to begin forging a pathway for those youngsters to break into the first eleven.

Di Paola hoped the appointment of Brewster, who boasts an impressive managerial resume, to the director of football position would help ‘align everything’ in the Hornets manager’s quest to blood more Horsham young guns.
