Former Watford manager Ray Lewington has been appointed to the England coaching staff for EURO 2012 by Roy Hodgson.
Lewington, 55, has officially been appointed as part of Hodgson's coaching staff for the duration of this summer's tournament.
The Lambeth-born coach joined the Hornets as reserve team manager under Luca Vialli before getting the top job himself in 2002.
During his three years in charge the former Chelsea and Fulham midfielder took the club to two cup semi-finals, where they were only narrowly beaten, as well as guiding the club to respectable league finishes.
In spite of all Lewington's excellent work under extreme financial constraints, constraints which included a 12% pay deferral for players and staff, he was sacked in March 2005.
Speaking to The FA Official Site, Hodgson said of his first appointment:
'I'm delighted that Fulham have agreed to Ray joining the England coaching staff for the summer. I know Ray well and enjoyed working with him at Craven Cottage.
'He's a very good coach and the players will I'm sure enjoy working with him.'
Whilst Lewington's time at the Vic' was by no means spectacular, it was extremely steady, and whilst the club fought for it's very existence, a steadier pair of hands we could not have wished for.
Congratulations on the appointment Ray & the very best of luck from all at Vital Watford!
