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.
