West Ham Make Quick Potts appointment

Following Mark Robson’s promotion to become part of West Ham United’s first-team backroom staff on Tuesday, it didn’t take the club long to confirm that Steve Potts will be replacing him as Development Squad lead coach.

Former defender Potts has held many different roles with the clubs youth sides and now gets his chance to step up, with Gerard Prenderville being named as his assistant. Prenderville himself was promoted from the U18s and will be replaced in their setup by Lauris Coggin.

All that is left now is for the whole club to succeed on the pitch during another eventful campaign in 2023/24.
