Steve Potts has returned to West Ham to take up a coaching role.
The former Irons centre half, now 44 – can you believe it, seems like yesterday he was running out for the team – made 399 first team appearances for West Ham between 1985 and 2002. He has joined the Academy coaching team at Chadwell Heath where he will take control of the club’s under 16 squad on a part-time basis.
Pottsy famously scored just the one goal in his entire career at West Ham way back in 1990.
Unusually for a centre back Pottsy is only 5’8 but that did not stop him winning Hammer of The Year on two occasions.
Welcome back Steve!
