Portsmouth boss Guy Whittingham has appointed Steve Allen as the club's new assistant manager.
Allen, 46, has been working at Fratton Park since August 2010 under the title head of sports performance.
"I've been given the title assistant manager and head of sports performance. That encompasses all medical aspects and the fitness of the players," Allen told the club's official website. "It also involves identifying players for Guy who can take the club forward.
"You can see from those we've signed so far that we're mostly concentrating on players aged between 21 and 26, who also have a resale value. We've worked particularly hard on player recruitment since January and we've tried to get ahead of the game and sign players quickly.
"It's a real honour to hold this position and I feel proud and privileged to do it for a club of this size and stature."
Whittingham was confirmed as Portsmouth's full-time manager last month, having done the job on a caretaker basis since 2011.
