Hinshelwood Appointed Hastings Boss

Hinshelwood Appointed Hastings Boss

Brighton have confirmed the exit of U18 assistant Adam Hinshelwood, Albion's former player has left his coaching role to become boss at Hastings United.

Hinshelwood, who has left with immediate effect, has taken charge of the Ryman League Division One South club - his own position at Brighton has been filled by Ian Buckman, promoted from within the Albion setup to assist Academy boss John Morling.

Commenting on the exit Morling told the Official Website: 'We are very sorry to lose Adam, as he is an excellent young coach, but we understand this is a great opportunity for him. He wants to be a manager, and has been a number one previously with Worthing and Selsey, and at Hastings he will have the chance to further develop his career.'

This move will also afford Hinshelwood more time with his family, which wasn't begrudge him.

Morling continued: 'The job will also allow him more time with his young family, and for footballing and family reasons, we understand Adam's motivation for wanting to take the job. On behalf of all at the club, I'd like to thank him for his efforts during his two years with us, he's been a pleasure to work alongside, and we wish him well in his new role.'

On the promotion of Buckman, Morling feels this will provide 'seamless continuity' at Brighton.

Adding: 'I'd also like to congratulate Mark on his new position. He's another superb young coach, who has demonstrated great ability during his time here, and I believe he will provide a seamless continuity when stepping up to assist Ian.'

Hinshelwood, 33, a player at Brighton from 2002 until 2009, making over 100 appearances for the club, had been forced to retire from the professional game early - a knee injured ended his career in 2010.
