Hammers appoint Lewin as Head of Medical Services
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."
