Club donates to manager cause

West  Ham have donated £1,000 to Just Giving page setup by Glenn Roeder’s family.

The page says “On 21 April 2003 our father, Glenn Roeder, collapsed after a football game at Upton Park and was subsequently diagnosed with a brain tumour. 

For the past 17+ years, the care Dad received was outstanding and we are so thankful for the way in which modern medicine was able to extend his life.

During these years he was able to continue working within the game he loved, managing his beloved Newcastle Utd, Norwich City and undertake other advisory roles.

Above all, Dad loved being with his family. He enjoyed numerous family occasions with his wife and children, especially birthdays, wedding celebrations and the arrival of his two Grandsons, Arthur and Ernest.

In recognition of the wonderful efforts of all the health care professionals involved in Glenn’s care, we are honoured to raise money for the Brain Tumour Charity in his memory.
