OFFICIAL STATEMENT: Burton and Day depart club

30 June 2015

Baggies continue backroom shake-up

West Bromwich Albion today announce the departures of two senior members of staff as the Club continues a backroom overhaul.

Terry Burton has left his post as Technical Director and Mervyn Day has departed from his position as Head of Recruitment.

As part of the on-going review of the Club's performance, notice has been given to terminate their contracts and they have been put on ‘garden leave’ with immediate effect.

Burton and Day are leaving after a year in post and Chairman Jeremy Peace said: "Both Terry and Mervyn depart with our best wishes for their future endeavours and gratitude for their efforts during another demanding season.

“But I am on record as saying the Club would be engaged in an on-going review at all levels and it was felt changes were required.

"We are looking ahead positively to a new beginning under Tony Pulis after two gruelling seasons. All our focus now is on preparing the squad for a stronger performance."

Albion will look to fill both positions in due course but Peace explained that there would be no hurry.

“Our plans for this summer are already in place,” he added. “In Tony, we have a very experienced and hands-on operator. In the fullness of time we will recruit suitable candidates for the posts.”
