"This is a massive project of great importance to West Ham United," Jack Sullivan said of his new role. "We have some exciting plans and huge expectations for the Ladies team, as we do for the mens, and we hope that within five years we can be challenging in FA WSL 1.

"For me personally it’s a huge project and something I can't wait to get started on. Whilst I will not be taking a wage from the Club, I am excited to be taking on my first full-time role at West Ham United and looking forward to the challenges ahead.

"We hope to make huge strides this summer before the new season starts, and plan to unveil a key player signing, with WSL experience, in the coming weeks.

"The Ladies team has great potential, and with the help of Karen Ray, Greg and Josh Ewens, I hope I can help guide them to some exceptional achievements and make them a team that the whole football Club, and its supporters, can be proud of."

With West Ham supporters being West Ham supporters, the absolute piss was ripped out of the appointment on social media.
