Kenny Brown returns to West Ham to join academy staff

Kenny Brown has been named West Ham Academy's Assistant Head of Coaching (U9s to U14s).

The former Hammers defender joins from Millwall, where he served as Head of Coaching for just under six years.

Brown's arrival sees Head of Academy Coach Development Kalam Mooniaruck advance into the new role of Head of Coaching (U15s to U23s) at Chadwell Heath.

Prior to his lengthy spell with the Lions, UEFA Pro Licence holder Brown also served as Academy Manager at Dagenham & Redbridge for just under three years.

Brown told “I'm very honoured and privileged to return to West Ham United.

“I was very proud to represent the Club as a player, and to have the opportunity to do so as a staff member – within the Academy as well, where you can see the excellent work that's being done – is a big honour for me.

“There are exceptional people here with a real work ethic, but there's also a real bounce around the Club and Academy.

“Hopefully I can put the faith the Club have shown in me to good work. I'm thoroughly looking forward to the challenge."
