In memory of Glenn Roeder

Glenn Roeder

The PFA are deeply saddened by the passing of former West Ham manager and England coach Glenn Roeder, aged 65, after a long illness.

Roeder’s playing career began at Leyton Orient, following his release from Arsenal. He quickly established himself as a talented ball-playing defender, going on to play for Queen’s Park Rangers and Newcastle, the latter of which he captained to promotion, before another brief spell at Orient. 

In the 1992-93 season, he joined Gillingham as a player-manager before establishing himself as one of the top and most respected coaches in the country, with managerial spells at Watford, West Ham, Newcastle and Norwich. Roeder also worked as a coach under Glenn Hoddle for the England team, before West Ham offered him the opportunity to be a part of club football again in 1999. Roeder's last spell in the game would be at Stevenage in 2016 as a managerial advisor. 

The thoughts and condolences of everyone at the PFA are with Glenn's family and friends.
