Mark Robson needs little introduction to Hammers fans.
Born in Upton Park and raised in the East End, he made 56 appearances across two seasons as a player with the Hammers. In the 1992/93 campaign, the skilful winger played 44 of a possible 46 league games in Claret and Blue, scoring eight goals as West Ham won promotion to the Premier League a year after its formation.
Also a UEFA Pro Licence holder, he previously spent over four years at the Football Association as a national specialist coach, working closely with the best young English players to progress through the national team pathway into Gareth Southgate’s senior squad.
In addition to his time at the Football Association, the 54-year-old has enjoyed first-team coaching roles at Aston Villa, Norwich City, Barnet, Peterborough, Gillingham and Charlton Athletic, as well as serving as U21s head coach at both Norwich and Charlton, before returning to the Hammers.
