The West Ham Utd Collection


West Ham United is one of the great names in football, the Hammers’ history studded with great players, great matches, great events. Formed in 1895 as the works team of Thames Ironworks, they were renamed West Ham United in 1900, when they turned professional.

The Hammers took part in the first-ever Wembley FA Cup Final, in 1923, and won the Cup for the first time in 1964, following up with Wembley victories in 1975 and 1980. In 1966 England won the World Cup with the help of three Hammers players – Bobby Moore, hat-trick hero Geoff Hurst, and Martin Peters – but two months earlier the Hammers had made history in their own right by winning the European Cup-winners’ Cup with an all-English eleven.

The West Ham United Collection covers all these great eras, with over 150 fascinating photographs of the players and the matches combining to produce a collection that will stir memories and will be a wonderful record of some of the greatest days in the history of this great club.
