Career Summary

Vastly experienced manager Sam Allardyce is taking charge of a Barclays Premier League club for the fourth time after guiding West Ham United to promotion to the top flight of English football at the first time of asking.

Prior to his tenure at the Boleyn Ground, Allardyce made his bow in the Premier League with Bolton Wanderers. In his first big break as a manager, the former Trotters defender won promotion to the top flight in his second season in charge and secured Bolton’s safety in the Premier League. An impressive eighth place finish followed in the 2003/04 campaign and he guided his charges to sixth in the league the following season, earning Bolton qualification for the UEFA Europa League.

In 2007, he was appointed as Newcastle United manager after eight successful years with Bolton. He parted company with the Magpies in January 2008 but was back in management with Blackburn Rovers the following season. Two mid-table finishes followed for Rovers under his guidance before he was relieved of his duties in December 2010.

Appointed as West Ham manager in June 2011, after the Hammers were relegated from the Premier League, Allardyce was instilled with the hope of bouncing straight back to the top flight. He certainly did not disappoint as the East London club defeated Blackpool in the Championship Play-off Final at Wembley Stadium after being in the top two of the division for much of the campaign.

Allardyce secured West Ham’s safety in the 2012/13 with two matches to spare after a fine first campaign back in the Premier League, before then guiding the club to 13th the following season.
