Glynn Snodin named as First Team Coach

West Ham United are delighted to confirm that Glynn Snodin is to join the Club as First Team Coach.

Glynn, 47, is leaving his post as First Team Coach at Championship side Southampton to team up again with Alan Curbishley, whom he worked under as Reserve Team Coach at Charlton Athletic for six years.

The former Doncaster Rovers, Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds United defender will begin work in his new role on Monday (July 2), when the players return to Chadwell Heath to begin pre-season training.

Glynn also holds a part-time coaching post with Northern Ireland, a role he stepped into following the appointment of Nigel Worthington as National Team Coach recently.

Manager Alan Curbishley says: "I am delighted to welcome Glynn to West Ham United and I am sure he will become a valuable member of the coaching staff here.

"Glynn worked with me at Charlton for six years, during which time he led the reserve team to two league titles, and he will bring many qualities to the Club, both as a coach and a person.

"I look forward to starting work with him again on Monday and wish him a long and successful career at West Ham United."

Further announcements regarding the coaching and backroom staff at Upton Park will be made in due course.
