Alex Dyer is delighted with his first season in charge of West Ham United's reserves.

Dyer was appointed reserve team manager earlier this season after Kevin Keen's promotion to first-team coach. The former Hull City, Crystal Palace and Barnet defender says he has enjoyed the experience of taking charge of West Ham's second string under the stewardship of the first team coaching staff.

Dyer told whufc.com: "I'm very grateful to have the opportunity to work at this level. The senior lads who have come into the reserves at the start of the season worked hard and played well for the club. It is difficult when you come and play reserve football sometimes, but they are good professionals and they worked hard.

"For me, it's been very easy to do this job. The management team have looked after us and I'd like to thank them for helping us - the gaffer, Steve Clarke and Kevin Keen have been great. They've given me all the support I've needed to do the job to the best of my abilities."
