Mr Moon announcement explained

Over many years we have heard many stadium announcements about the famous Mr Moon at the Boleyn Ground. It is no secret that the coded messaged means the stadium fire alarm has been activated, often around half time as fans have a crafty cigarette in the toilets.

When a fire alarm is activated at the Boleyn Ground, the standard message often heard :¬†“Will the Club secretary please note Mr Moon is in the Stadium”

When the all clear is given we hear the famous message¬†“Staff Announcement: Mr Moon has now left the stadium” often followed by a cheer from the crowd.

Now someone has revealed that Mr Moon was the lead fireman at the Boleyn Ground after world war two.

Messaging Jack Sullivan on twitter the former West Ham employee “I was told (when I worked there in the late 80’s) that Mr Moon was the lead fireman that looked after the ground after the war”
