Ex-Arsenal and England physio Gary Lewin appointed by West Ham
Former Arsenal and England physio Gary Lewin has joined West Ham to become the club's new head of medical services.
Lewin spent 22 years at Arsenal and 18 with England -- the last six of those as the Three Lions' senior head of physiotherapy. He recently returned to Arsenal as part of the ladies' team.
The 53-year-old, who was born in East Ham and was on West Ham's books as a schoolboy before turning to physiotherapy at 19, replaces Stijn Vandenbroucke at the London Stadium.
"I am really looking forward to it," Lewin told West Ham's official website. "I have met [manager] 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."
