Friends ask West Ham family to remember fan


JimboFriends of a young West Ham supporter called James Miles are asking that fans remember him 28 minutes minutes into the match on Saturday after he tragically passed away last Friday from cancer which he had been battling for four years.

One fiend wrote on Social media “Jimbo was only 28 year old, the one thing in life he lived for was West Ham. Even though he was battling a brain tumour he still hauled his arse down to the pub to watch his beloved Hammers two days before he died. Please can you help me spread the word to get Jimbo a minute;s applause in the 28th minute in the game versus West Brom! If he is looking down it would fill him with pride!”
