Hammers look to stem flow of injuries with ex Arsenal man

After a season blighted by persistent injuries, West Ham have moved quickly to secure the services of former Arsenal and England physio Gary Lewin as Head of Medical Services.

The 53-year-old, who was born in East Ham, had been working with the Arsenal ladies team on a temporary basis, but he jumped at the chance of joining the Hammers following the departure of Stijn Vandenbrouke, who has left to pursue a new challenge.

“I am really looking forward to it,” said Lewin. “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!”

Lewin, who was on the West Ham books as a schoolboy keeper at the age of 19, before turning to physiotherapy, has a tough job to do.

One thing he will look to tackle is the constant problems facing Andy Carroll, whose career has been blighted by injury.

One thing he is known for during his time at England, was being stretchered off after dislocating his left ankle after celebrating Daniel Sturridge’s goal against Italy in the 2014 World Cup.
