Darren Moore to become the Premier League's first Jamaican manager

West Brom's caretaker boss Darren Moore will create history on Saturday afternoon when he'll become the first Jamaican to manage in the Premier League.

Moore was placed in charge of the Baggies first team on Monday following the departure of beleaguered boss Alan Pardew, who exited the Hawthorns with a record of three wins from 21 matches, only one of which was registered in the Premier League.

Pardew left West Brom rooted to the foot of the table, 10 points adrift of safety with six games to go.

Four contenders for the West Brom Job

With the club effectively relegated Moore will be tasked with restoring pride and confidence during their run-in against the Swans, Man Utd, Liverpool, Newcastle, Tottenham, and then Crystal Palace on the final day.

Come 3pm Saturday his name will be stamped into the history books when he oversees West Brom’s clash against Carlos Carvalhal’s Swansea, as he’ll be the Premier League’s very first manager from the Caribbean islands.

Moore, who was born in Birmingham, sported the shirt of the Reggae Boyz on two occasions during his playing career, while at club level he played for the likes of West Brom, Portsmouth and Derby.

Jamaica will subsequently become the 23rd nationality to be represented in the Premier League dugout - see the table below for the full list - and only the second from Central America and North America, following American Bob Bradley’s short-lived spell in charge of Swansea back in 2016.
