Former Reading title-winner Hayden Mullins has been made Under-21 Head Coach at Premier League Fulham.

Born-and-bred in the town, Mullins made his name with Crystal Palace and played over 250 times for the Eagles.

Making another 300+ for West Ham and Portsmouth, it was not until 2012 that Mullins returned 'home' and featured for the Royals on loan.

Playing seven times during the 2011/12 run-in, the midfielder picked up a Championship winners medal.

Moving on again after promotion to the Premier League, he ended his career in 2015 at Notts County.

Moving onto coaching, he had a spell as loans manager with Reading but had an interim spell managing Watford as well as a longer stint with Colchester United.

He now moves to Craven Cottage to oversee the development of the Academy side- a similar role to one he held for four years with the Hornets.

Academy Director Sean Cullen said: "We are delighted that Hayden has joined the Academy as Under-21s Head Coach. He brings with him experience as a player, coach and manager that will further compliment our programme. Hayden’s track record as a youth developer is second to none, and we believe he will support our players achieve their individual potential, whilst also ensuring our Under-21s are competitive."
