Brighton have announced that their management team have all signed long-term contracts, which includes a deal for ex-Hamilton boss Billy Reid.

Graham Potter and all his backroom staff have all signed new deals which will see them stay at the Amex Stadium until 2025. The Seagulls are currently in 12th spot in the Premier League.

This deal comes just months after Reid penned a four-year deal at the club. He is currently serving as Potter’s assistant.

Reid spent plenty of time in Hamilton

During his playing days, Reid had spells with Queen of the South, Clyde, Hamilton and Stirling Albion. His first managerial spell came with Clyde before a defining one with Accies followed.

He would spend more than seven years with the South Lanarkshire club as boss, with his most notable achievement the 2007–08 Scottish First Division title victory. That earned him a PFA Scotland Manager of the Year award.

After leaving Accies, he linked up with Potter in Sweden at Ostersunds and hasn’t looked back since. After the pair earned a move to Swansea City in 2018, a Brighton switch beckoned this summer.

Already he has earned an extension and Reid will be delighted to have secured his long-term future.
