Lewin in

Former England physio Gary Lewin has been appointed as West Ham's new Head of Medical.

East Ham-born Lewin, who most recently has been working with the Arsenal Ladies squad effectively replaces Stijn Vandenbroucke, who departs West Ham for a second time.




"I am really looking forward to it," the 53-year-old told the club's website.

"I have met Slaven [Bilic] a few times down the years, most memorably when I was sat on the bench when his Croatia team beat England at Wembley in 2007 to stop us qualifying for Euro 2008!

"Despite that, I am looking forward greatly to working with Slaven and also with Julian Dicks and Chris Woods, who I know from my time in football, his other backroom staff and all the players."




Vandenbroucke's time at the club appears to have come to a sudden end - yet he received the best wishes of co-Chairman David Sullivan prior to departing.

"We all have enjoyed working with Stijn and wish him and his family all the best," he said.
