West Ham United would like to welcome Dominic Rogan to the Club as part of a revamped Sports Science and Sports Medicine department

Rogan has joined the following six successful years with Everton and a spell with Russian Premier League club Anzhi Makhachkala.

The University of Manchester graduate takes a keen interest in sports science and sports medicine and admits he cannot wait to get started in his new role.

"I am delighted to join West Ham United and I'm looking forward to meeting the staff and players," said Rogan, who hails from Preston in Lancashire. "Everyone knows the manager's reputation and he is obviously one of the pioneers of sports science and sports medicine.

"West Ham is a Premier League Club with a great fanbase and is an innovative Club in terms of sports and medicine and the fitness department. It's a privilege to be working for a Club with such kudos and prestige as West Ham."

Rogan explained that he has gained a wealth of experience of working at the highest level in English and European football.

At Everton, where he worked with one of the smallest squads in the Barclays Premier League, Rogan helped David Moyes to field a consistent starting XI as the Toffees challenged for top-six finishes year after year.

Last season, he spent a period working at Anzhi, where he treated stars including current Chelsea pair Samuel Eto'o and Willian and a host of Russia internationals.
Now, Rogan is back in the Barclays Premier League and looking forward to a new challenge.

"I started at Goodison Park in 2007 and I spent six fantastic years at Everton, first under Mick Rathbone as assistant physio and then for the last three years as run-on physio under Danny Donachie on David Moyes' staff. I enjoyed a lot of success at Everton and we had a relatively good injury record.

"Last year, I had the opportunity to go to Anzhi to head up the medical department there as Head Physiotherapist.

"Now, I am here at West Ham United and I am looking forward to working in the Premier League again."

Rogan explained that the role of a First Team Physiotherapist is an intense and challenging one, with the overall aim as having as many players as possible available for selection by the manager on a matchday.

"The thing about football is that, while every day follows a rough skeletal structure, no two days are the same and it often changes.

"The overall aim for every physio is to make the players more resilient and more robust and to try to keep injuries to a minimum. Football is very demanding so all of our efforts are focused on keeping players fit or getting them back fit and strong so their chances of being injured again are as small as possible."

Rogan's arrival follows the departure of Head of Sports Medicine and Sports Science Andy Rolls. The Club would like to thank Andy for his hard work and wish him all the very best for his future career.
