NICK DAVIES has been confirmed as West Ham’s new Head of Fitness, as reported by TGG on December 3rd.
The Welshman, who has been Head of Sports Science at Charlton, Birmingham and Norwich, had a previous stint with the Hammers from June 2007 to June 2009.
He said: “My introduction over the last five weeks has been an enjoyable one and I feel I’m thriving here. It’s strange to think it is a decade ago, but I joined the Club under Alan Curbishley and had two really enjoyable years here, so it’s brilliant to be back and there is a little feeling of coming home, I must admit.
“I’ve been ever so impressed since I came back. This is the first time I’ve had an opportunity to work with David and I was delighted when it arose to come and be a part of his backroom staff.
“He is such a meticulous guy and his eye for detail is one of his things that everyone at the Club is benefitting from. There is calibre in every department and it’s definitely true to say we have got some really skilled, dedicated individuals here
“It’s brilliant to be part of something which you feel can get better and continue to evolve and ultimately help the manager maximise what the players can deliver for him on a matchday from a physical perspective.”
Gary Lewin continues as Head of Medical Services, with a team including Head Physio Dominic Rogan, physio Fraser Young, rehab fitness coach Eamon Swift and Head of Performance Analysis Jamie Osman.
Davies left Norwich in June, after four years at the club. During his time with the Canaries he worked with Alan Irvine, who is now Moyes’ assistant with the Hammers.
