Hammers launch third kit

thirdWest Ham have officially launched the Club’s new Third kit for the 2017/18 season.

The design recreates the first-ever strip worn by the Hammers in the 1900/01 Southern League season – the Club’s first as West Ham United – and is adorned with the first known crest to appear on a West Ham jersey, from the famous 1923 ‘White Horse’ FA Cup final.

The Third kit is comprised of a sky blue shirt, complete with cuffed sleeves and a buttoned collar stamped with the date that the Club became West Ham United – 5 July 1900 – white shorts with a claret trim and black socks.

third2 West Ham United’s first Southern League fixture following the Club’s recreation in 1900 was against Gravesend at the Memorial Grounds in West Ham on 1 September 1900.The Hammers ran out 7-0 winners over their visitors from Kent in front of a 2,000-strong crowd, with Billy Grassam scoring four times, James Reid twice and Fergus Hunt once.

Captain Mark Noble says it is important for the Hammers to pay tribute to the Club’s forefathers.

“As a lifelong West Ham fan, I really like what the Club have done with this Third kit,” said Noble. “It’s important to remember where it all began for West Ham United, all those years ago.

“It’s also a really nice kit, too. I’m sure the fans will love wearing it as much as the players will love playing in it. It’s a shirt you can wear both to play football and with a pair of jeans.”

  1. Always good to see a team photo ain’t it? You’ve got Captain Slow, Poppodom, Byram and Quina looks chuffed to bits being involved with his crossarmed salute bless him 😆😆

  2. 😂😂😂

  3. Not sure I fancy wearing it with jeans with the huge ad on the front! I also notice poppodom taking no chances and leaving the watch at home.

  4. Probably in a minority, but I like this shirt.
    Reminds me of the TIW shirt.

  5. Wonder if you can get it without Betway plastered across it?
