James Shan

First-Team Coach



Date of birth




JAMES Shan has worked his way up the Albion coaching ladder to become a member of first-team staff under Darren Moore.

Shan, on Darren's request, was part of the temporary team which contributed to an end-of-season revival in the last six games of the 2017/18 campaign before making the step-up permanent in the summer. 

He has forged a close relationship with the Baggies Head Coach after they worked together for over seven years in the Academy.

After joining the Club as an under-7s coach in 2006, Jimmy went on to manage the under-18s and, more recently, the Baggies’ Premier League 2 side.

He has helped develop an impressive pool of talent during his time at The Hawthorns, nurturing the likes of Sam Field, Chris Wood, Saido Berahino and Isaiah Brown.
