Former Brighton midfielder Bowman appointed West Ham United first team coach

Former Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Dani Bowman has been appointed first team coach at West Ham United according to reports on The Hammers’ official club website.

The 33-year-old former England international left Brighton & Hove Albion at the end of the season after five years with the Sussex club and she now turns her attentions towards a successful coaching career.

Bowman’s first dip into coaching comes at West Ham United where she will work under new manager Paul Konchesky. Bowman will hope to help The Hammers to kick-on from their record-breaking season in 2021/2022. The East Londoners finished the campaign in sixth position in the Barclays Women’s Super League table with a record points tally.

After being appointed West Ham United first team coach, Bowman said “It’s an exciting opportunity. I’ve been doing a little bit of coaching over the last couple of years. It’s a new challenge for me and I’m really looking forward to getting started.

“I like the vison that the Club has and where it wants to be in the future, and this is the right move at the right time for me.

“As I’ve gotten a little older, I’ve always tried to help where I can – that happened a lot last season when I was on the sidelines due to injury. It’s a great opportunity to do more of that, but in a controlled manner.”

Bowman replaces Brian Tompkins as West Ham United first team coach with his departure having today been confirmed.
