Where is Julian Dicks now?
Former West Ham United legend Julian Dicks or “The “Terminator”, as he was affectionately known by fans, finally retired from playing in 2002 after dropping into non-league football to play for Canvey Island.
Starting his career at Birmingham City in 1985 he went onto make over 400 first team appearances for three clubs including a 13 month spell at Liverpool.

Upon retiring from playing football, Dicks moved to Spain to tried to take up golf professionally but was unable to maintain this career due to a knee injury sustained during his playing days.
In 2009 he made a return to football when he was appointed manager of Wivenhoe Town but left by mutual consent after six months.
He then had spells at Grays Athletic and Sealand before joining West Ham United as manager of their ladies team in 2014, improving the team considerably and leading them to the London FA Women’s Cup Final in 2014-15.
A year later he joined up with new West Ham manager and former team-mate Slaven Bilic as part of his first team coaching staff for the club’s final year at the Boleyn Ground.
Although the pair enjoyed a memorable first season finishing seventh, the team struggled in their second season adapting to their new stadium and ended finishing 11th.
A disastrous start to the 2017/18 season saw West Ham plummet into the bottom three which ultimately cost Bilic and his backroom staff, including Dicks, their jobs.
He made a return to football in October 2018 when he joined non-league side Heybridge Swifts as manager but left at the end of the season to join up with Slaven Bilic once more as one of his backroom team at West Bromwich Albion.
