New Technical Director appointed

WEST Bromwich Albion are delighted to confirm the appointment of Nick Hammond as the Club’s new Technical Director.

Albion have reached agreement with Hammond and Reading, where the 48-year-old has held the role of Director of Football since 2003, for his switch to The Hawthorns.

Hammond, a former goalkeeper who enjoyed spells at Arsenal, Swindon Town, Plymouth and Reading, switched to coaching and was appointed Reading’s Youth Academy Director in 2000.

After three years in that role, he was promoted to Director of Football and played a key role in the Championship Club twice winning promotion to the Premier League in 2006 and 2012.
