Newcastle academy role for Roeder
Ex-West Ham boss Glenn Roeder
Roeder was sacked by West Ham in August 2003
Former West Ham boss Glenn Roeder has been appointed the new Academy manager at Newcastle United.

Ex-Magpies skipper Roeder has been given the job after the club's youth set-up was restructured and will take up his post next month.

"I am absolutely delighted to have been given this opportunity," he told the club's official website.

Roeder's appointment comes after former first-team coach John Carver's departure as Academy director.

Roeder recovered from a brain tumour in 2003 but was later sacked by West Ham as they slipped out of the Premiership.

He made 219 appearances in Newcastle's defence after signing for 120,000 from QPR in December 1983.

He became a crowd favourite at St James' Park and has retained his affection for the club since departing for Watford at the end of the 1988-89 season.
