About Us

ClaretandHugh has been set up by Hughie Southon – a lifelong Hammer and national newspaper writer for many years. Hughie has interviewed or acted as a ‘ghost’ writer for many Irons legends from Bobby Moore onwards. He has great contacts at the club but is in no way employed by them as that would affect his independent view of life at the London Stadium. The sole aim of this website is to keep the fans up to date with everything that’s happening inside the club. Occasionally – like everybody else in life – we get the odd thing wrong but more often than not the news we bring will be on the money. We are here for the true fans. Use the Contact box for views and blogs – go to the forums to leave your messages on stories.

Sean Whetstone joined the site in 2014 and is the associate editor of  Claret and Hugh. He is a season Ticket Holder in the London Stadium in block 113 West Stand and a Podcaster on Moore Than Just  A Podcast.
