Motherwell manager Graham Alexander says ‘ambitious’ Nick Daws will be an asset to the Fir Park club after the former QPR and Scunthorpe coach was appointed head of recruitment operations.

Daws worked with Alexander as the current Motherwell manager’s assistant at Scunthorpe before becoming manager of the Iron. He has also coached at QPR and worked as head of recruitment at AFC Wimbledon, who Daws left in February this year. The 51-year-old has been working behind the scenes at Motherwell since May and takes over from Martin Foyle.

Alexander said: “I’m delighted to welcome Nick aboard to spearhead our recruitment department. He’s someone I’ve known for the last five years and I respect highly for his vast experience, intelligence and professionalism. He’ll embrace and introduce new ideas to how we work, using all the tools the modern game provides.

“It’s important we build a platform that will benefit the club for many years and I know how ambitious Nick is to create that. He’ll work closely with everyone and I’m sure he’ll be another positive addition to the excellent team of staff we already have.”
