Rolls with it

Filed: Tuesday, 14th January 2014
By: Staff Writer

West Ham United's Head of Sports Science, Andy Rolls, has parted company with the Club.

Rolls spent four-and-a-half years at the Boleyn Ground, having moved from Watford in June 2009 after four years with the Hornets.

He spent three years learning his trade at Chelsea before moving to Vicarage Road in the summer of 2005 where he was recognised by the Championship club as having played a "vital role in Watford's promotion [to the Premier League] in his first season".

Referred to as "a leader in the industry with many other clubs copying [his] techniques and systems," Rolls was a constant figure in the dugout during his tenure at West Ham, where he would often be seen sporting an earpiece.

News of his departure was revealed by the Club's strength and conditioning coach Matthew Monte-Colombo via his Twitter account this afternoon [Tuesday], although the message has since been removed. The Hammers are yet to confirm who, if anyone, will replace Rolls.
