Allardyce confirmed as Hammers boss

First published in West Ham

SAM Allardyce was today confirmed as the new manager of West Ham.

Owners David Sullivan and David Gold have turned to the former Bolton, Newcastle and Blackburn boss to guide them to promotion back to the Barclays Premier League at the first attempt.

The 56-year-old replaces Avram Grant, who was axed minutes after West Ham's relegation was sealed by a 3-2 defeat at Wigan a week before the end of the season.

"It's a fantastic club with a great tradition and loyal supporters," said Allardyce.

"I am determined to get this club back up."
