Hammers social club is saved

SocialMembers of the Hammers Supporters Club have supported and agreed to a rescue package for the West Ham Supporters’ Club which was due to close its doors forever on 31st May.

A brand new committee has been formed, membership has been re-opened and the club is now busy organising its future. Steve Midwinter is now the new chairman.

A new website will be opened shortly while all members from the past few years are to be contacted about joining again or continuing their membership. Supporters are welcome to contact the HSC to pledge help with time and costs !!!

Membership will be £10 until 31st December 2017. Membership forms are available at the club or can be downloaded once from the WHUISA website.

SocialclubThe club will be organising an evening for Saturday 24th June hosted by Tony Gale.  A list of former players appearing will be published soon. Tickets will be priced at £15 which will also give you membership of the HSC. Tickets are being limited to 175 and we are hopeful of selling them all. The club itself will be open from 2pm that day and lager/beer priced at £3 a pint.

There will also be the Hammer of the Year presentation in early August – further details to follow. The original HotY trophy now in its 70th year will be presented and it is hoped many of the club’s players past and present will be there.

The HSC is looking at opening in Stratford in order to be closer to the new ground and has had and will have discussions with West Ham United and Newham Council to this effect.

Your HSC needs YOU ! Please support the HSC in whatever way you can.

A copy of the HSC membership form can be found on the WHUISA website or follow this link.

  1. Really pleased to hear this and I hope the move actually provides the supporters club with a new lease of life. I’ve said it before I’ll say it again HSC and WHUISA should merge as one as they need one another. Joint committee joint funds joint membership joint events. Complete no brainer. I’ve not seen anyone explain why this hasn’t or doesn’t happen.
