Lewin looking ahead

West Ham United's New Head of Medical Services, Gary Lewin, says he is looking forward to his first pre-season at the club.

Lewin is part of the entourage that jetted out to Austria yesterday for an 11-day stay in Bad Waltersdorf, a village some 75 miles south of capital Vienna renowned for its (hot) natural spring water.

And he revealed that he was looking forward to working with the squad ahead of the start of the 2017/18 Premier League campaign.




"Its such a great environment," Lewin told the club's website. "The facilities and hotels are always very good, the pitches are a good standard but, more importantly, you can isolate the team, so that you can purely focus on pre-season and football.

"It also means that we can take our injured players with us we are not isolating them from the main squad and although they will be integrated back into training at different times, they will essentially have been a part of the same programme.

"This year we can set in stone what we are doing and have a pre-conceived plan all the way through to the first Premier League fixture. We can all be on the same page, with the same levels of fitness and, hopefully, have everyone relatively injury-free and ready to go."

The Hammers are scheduled to play at least two fixtures during their brief stay, against local side Sturm Graz and Championship outfit Fulham, who are also enjoying pre-season in the same area.

Meanwhile travelling fans have already started to arrive in the area ahead of the two fixtures - no doubt keen to sample some of Bad Waltersdorf's world-famous spas and golf courses!
