Hammers Academy remains shut

The West Ham Academy will remain shut until next year.

Last week the Hammers released a club statement to say that the Club’s U18s, U23s and women’s would be rescheduled.

They confirmed that a small number of individuals have returned positive tests for COVID-19 so they wanted to prioritise everyone’s safety and wellbeing of paramount importance.

The individuals concerned immediately began a period of self-isolation in accordance with Public Health England and Government guidelines and protocols.

As a precaution, the Club’s Chadwell Heath training site – home to the West Ham United Academy and the women’s first-team squad was closed.  The site will undergo deep cleaning during this period.

Rush Green training centre continues to operate as normal.
