Three new West Ham arrivals


David Moyes has revealed that three new backroom staff have arrived at the club.

That means the coaching staff as well as the squad has been beefed up as well of the squad as the manager bids to take the Hammers in a new era.

The Hammers have added John Heitinga, Mark Robson and Henry Newman as first-team assistants to the manager, as per the official West Ham website.

They join Billy McKinlay, Kevin Nolan and goalkeeping coach Xavi Valero as the six plus the manager drive the training at Rush Green after a magnificent start to the season.

Moyes lost Mark Warburton at the end of the season and has also seen Stuart Pearce depart over the last few years so it’s great to see the backroom staff back in order

He added on the official West Ham website. “He has gained some very good experience since beginning his coaching career in the Ajax Academy and working his way up to their first-team.

“Mark and Henry are both already familiar to everyone here at the club and have deserved the opportunity to step up within our structure.

“John, Mark and Henry will each bring experience in different areas and complement the strengths we already have in the coaching team alongside Billy, Kevin and Xavi.”
