Gibraltar have appointed Jeff Wood as their new permanent head coach with interim boss David Wilson returning to his previous role as assistant. Wood, 61, moves over from Lions Gibraltar FC having previously coached Malta's Sliema Wanderers and Brighton & Hove Albion in his native England.
"This is a fantastic oppportunity given that I have been invovled with Gibraltarian football in the past," Wood said. "I know there is a lot of talent and especially hungry talent in Gibraltarian Football and I hope to be able to oversee the development and nurturing of that talent into the national team and make the whole of Europe and the world take Gibraltar seriously given the calibre of player that we constantly produce."

I have to congratulate our players. They gave their all, all their heart and soul in the first 45 minutes, but in the second half they physically fell and could not play at the same level. It was good to have some clear chances and it was by far was our best performance in the six matches we have played.
People would expect this score, but I am very happy for what we did today. We made mistakes but it is on our approach in the first 45 minutes that we have to build.
