Former Hammer Zavon Hines has been appointed Lead Under 15 lead coach at West Ham’s Academy.

Speaking on social media, Hines announced Happy to announce I will be starting my new role at West Ham as the New Lead Under 15s coach. Really exciting time for me working and learning from some great people at the academy. Great way to start 2023. The hard work continues.”

Hines was born in Jamaica but grew up in the East End of London. He had been playing youth and regular reserve team football for West Ham.

Hines made his first-team debut for West Ham United against Macclesfield Town in a League Cup second-round match, scoring a goal. Hines missed much of the 2008–09 season with a knee injury but signed a new contract in March 2009, keeping him at the club until the summer 2010. After playing in pre-season for the 2009–10 season, Hines was in the matchday squad for several matches and had played against Liverpool in September. He scored his first league goal for West Ham when he scored a 93rd-minute winner in a 2–1 victory over Aston Villa on 4 November 2009. Hines’ 2009–10 season came to an end in January 2010 following an injury to his knee, which required surgery. He returned to first-team football, after nearly a year out, on 30 November in a 4–0 win in the League Cup against Manchester United, and went on to make 15 league and cup appearances in the 2010–11 season. In the summer of 2011, Hines turned down the offer of a new contract and left the club. He had made a total of 31 league and cup appearances for West Ham, scoring three goals.

In 2019 he returned to West Ham as a coach for the under 14’s of the Academy.
