Crystal Palace’s under-18s Des Bulpin has left the club to join Millwall.

The 62-year-old will link up with former Eagles boss Ian Holloway at the south London club where he will be first team coach.

Bulpin became Palace’s under-18 coach last summer.

The experienced coach previously had stints at Bristol City and Bristol Rovers and also worked at Queens Park Rangers and Tottenham Hotspur.

Gary Issott, the club’s academy director, told “We are sorry to lose Des and thank him for his efforts in helping the lads in the under-18s’ development.

“From all of us at the academy, we wish him the best in his career going forward.”
