Academy graduate returns as coach

Anwar Uddin learned his trade as a footballer at the Boleyn Ground - and now he is taking his first steps as a coach with West Ham United too.

The 31-year-old defender, who signed pro with the Hammers at the turn of the Millennium, went on to play in the Football League for Bristol Rovers, Dagenham & Redbridge and Barnet, winning promotion twice during his time with the Daggers.

He was also part of West Ham's FA Youth Cup winning team in 1999 and is now teaching the next generation of Hammers as a part-time coach with the Academy, working with the Foundation Phase (Under-8s to Under-12s).

Academy Director Tony Carr MBE said: "I'm delighted that Anwar has joined us as a part-time coach, working with the Foundation Phase three times a week, with a game on a Sunday.

"I've known Anwar since he was a young lad here, he's a good character, very amenable and is a great fit for us.

"As an ex-pro and being one of the first Asians to crack it in English football, he's a great role model for the kids and I'm sure he will be an excellent coach."
