SCOTT Marshall has left his role as a coach at Swindon Town to become Ben Garner's assistant at Charlton Athletic.

Scott Marshall and Scott Lindsey had both played supporting roles on the coaching staff at Swindon last season and both appeared to be following Garner to The Valley once the 42-year-old's move was confirmed.

According to The South London Press, Charlton had been negotiating compensation for both Scotts before Lindsey was eventually appointed as Town's new head coach.

Marshall becomes the latest in a number of ex-Swindon staff who have moved to The Valley since Garner took over earlier this month.

Players Mandela Egbo and Jojo Wollacott signed contracts this week while performance analyst Jake Marques also made the switch to take up a first-team role for the Addicks.

The news of Marshall’s appointment comes after Charlton legend Jason Euell left his position in the Addicks' coaching set-up.

Speaking to the SLP, Marshall said: “I am delighted, we know each other well from last season. It is great to get a chance to put our skills together again and get Charlton moving in the right direction.

“There is a lot of history around Charlton. We want to create our own little bit of Charlton’s history. I’m really privileged to be able to have an opportunity to be a part of that.”
