From number two to number one

It's Auf Wiedersehen to Colin Calderwood, who has moved north of the border to be the main man at Hibs. The Scot joined as Chris Hughton's assistant in January 2009, and so during his brief stay has witnessed the Toon rollercoaster at full speed, lurching from relegation before rocketing back to the "big time".

Speaking in his first press conference at Easter Road, Calderwood had some fond words for his former employers: "Newcastle will always be a special club to me ... I have thoroughly enjoyed the time I've spent [there]. It has been fantastic to work alongside a brilliant manager in Chris Hughton and with some great players at the club. Being part of last season's promotion to the Premier League is something I'm very proud of."

Only Hughton, the players and other members of the coaching staff really know how much of an influence and input Calderwood had in our demise and subsequent resurrection - but he leaves with our best wishes.
