Sherwood appoints two members of staff at Aston Villa, including Mark Robson

Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood has appointed two members of staff this afternoon.

The Paul Lambert era is now over at Aston Villa after his sacking last week, and now the Tim Sherwood revolution begins.

The former Tottenham manager has been out of work since leaving White Hart Lane in May, but is now back in the Premier League after being appointed the new Villa boss on Saturday.

Sherwood watched from the stands as Villa beat Leicester City 2-1 in the FA Cup on Sunday, and was presented to the media on Monday as he gets settled into the job ahead of this weekend's clash with Stoke City at Villa Park.

Now, after the departure of caretaker manager Scott Marshall, Sherwood has made his first two appointments as Villa manager, as confirmed on the club's official website - and both were previously at Tottenham.

The first is Mark Robson, who joins as first team coach after his departure from Norwich City in January. Robson, 45, is best known for co-managing Barnet alongside Edgar Davids, and played for the likes of Spurs and West Ham as a midfielder during the 1980's and 1990's.

The second is the relatively unknown Seamus Brady, who has joined as a performance analyst - the same role he held at Tottenham whilst Sherwood was with the North London club.

Sherwood is still yet to appoint an assistant manager, but his backroom staff is beginning to take shape after these latest appointments.
