Former Hammer marks his signing
Former Hammer John Hartson took to social media yesterday to mark the 24th anniversary of his joining West Ham.
Hartson posted on Twitter “24 years ago today I signed for West Ham United.. 21 years old, record signing £3.2 million. Left Arsenal to join the Hammers.. some great memories”
The post was liked over 5,500 times on social media with over two hundred comments back to the former striker.
Following the big response from fans, Hartson went back to Twitter to say “Appreciate the feedback from West Ham [fans] today.. I genuinely loved my time at Upton Park it was a shame it never lasted more than 2 years. The massive money came in from Wimbledon [&] it was taken out of hands.”
