Hammers appoint Lewin as Head of Medical Services

Gary Lewin

West Ham United are delighted to announce the appointment of Gary Lewin as the Club’s new Head of Medical Services.

The vastly-experienced Lewin arrives at London Stadium with a peerless CV, having previously combined 22 years as first-team physiotherapist at Arsenal with 18 as England’s physio – the last six as England Senior Head of Physiotherapy.

The 53-year-old was born in East Ham and spent time on West Ham’s books as a schoolboy goalkeeper, before turning to physiotherapy full-time at the age of 19. Now, he is relishing a return to the Premier League and working with a manager in Slaven Bilic who he knows well.

“I am really looking forward to it,” Lewin said. “I have met Slaven 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."
