West Ham United by Charles Korr

$14.00

West Ham United: The Making of a Football Club. No detailed inside history of a football club has ever been published. It is remarkable therefore that the board of West Ham should have opened its archives to an American historian and given free scope to an outsider to tell the story of the “Hammers”. The result is a triumph. West Ham United: The Making of a Football Club is a lively and entertaining account of the club from its foundations, in 1895, as the company team of the Thames Ironworks. Many of its star players have been local men, while the board, since its inception, has been peopled by generations of local families, most prominently the Cearns and Pratt families. West Ham’s greatest successes are covered, and also its low points; and there are numerous sketches of the stream of characters who have surrounded the club from its earliest days, from the colourful and flamboyant Syd King to the intensely professional and private Ron Greenwood. This evocative and well-illustrated book—with a Foreword by manager John Lyall—will appeal to anyone interested in sport or the East End-and, of course, to all West Ham supporters keen to know how their club came to be what it is today. “A most interesting and intriguing insight into the club and its history”.
