Mark Robson has joined West Ham to become their U-23s head coach, leaving his job at Peterborough United, according to ExWHUemployee.

Dmitri Halajko has taken up a role at the Premier League and his position has been taken over by the former Peterborough coach.

Robson, who was the assistant manager there, will be taking up a number one position, albeit at the U-23s level.

Good move

He’s worked with the England U-20s as well as one of the main coaches for the senior side at Posh, so he’s definitely got the credentials for this job.

The Hammers youth academy is in a very good place at the moment, and Halajko certainly deserves credit for it.

However, Robson comes to Rush Green with an impressive CV and we cannot wait to see how he fares in this new role.

Former Hammer Matthew Etherington will replace him after serving as Peterborough’s U-23s coach.

We’re unsure as to how much of a say David Moyes has had in this appointment but it will be interesting to see how he works with Robson.

It’s extremely important for head coaches and the youth coaches to be on the same page as the first-team keeps needing to call on reinforcements from the academy in case of injury crises or during cup games.
