SAINTS have confirmed that Nigel Adkins' backroom team have left with him.

Andy Crosby, Dean Wilkins and Jim Stannard have all left the club, as Mauricio Pochettino looks to bring in his own team.

Wilkins originally joined the club under Alan Pardew and was the caretaker manager before Adkins replaced Pardew.

However, Les Reed, who is a director at the club, remains.
