West Ham United's Paul Nevin rejoins the England men's senior coaching staff
Paul Nevin has rejoined the England senior men’s coaching staff.
 
The West Ham United first-team coach initially started working with the Three Lions in October 2018 as part of the FA and PFA’s Elite Coach Placement Programme. Nevin remained with the squad through to the end of the 2019 UEFA Nations League campaign when England secured a third-place finish.

Nevin’s England duties will be alongside his full-time role with West Ham.

“We'd like to thank Graeme Jones for supporting us during the summer but the arrangement with Newcastle United was always for that to only be for the duration of the tournament," said Three Lions manager Gareth Southgate.

“That now allows us the opportunity to welcome Paul back to our coaching team. Paul is a hugely respected coach and somebody we know well so we’re thankful to David Moyes and West Ham for allowing him to support us on the road to the 2022 FIFA World Cup.”

Nevin began his coaching career with Fulham's academy before going on to work with New Zealand Knights, Aspire Academy in Qatar, Norwich City and Brighton & Hove Albion.

The 52-year-old joined the Hammers in February 2020 and helped guide the club to their highest league finish in 22 years last season to secure European qualification.
