Please remember Dylan on 38 minutes

TombidesWest Ham will display a photo of former Hammers player Dylan Tombides during the Premier League game with Watford tomorrow evening on the big screens on 38 minutes to remember the brave lad who died two years ago this week.

Dylan, whose prodigious talents saw him sign for West Ham in 2008, lost his brave three-year battle with testicular cancer in April 2014, at the age of just 20.

The hugely popular figure among his team-mates, Tombides2coaches, backroom staff, supporters and opponents alike, the Australia U22 international was loved and respected throughout the football community for his talent, his smile and his spirit.

Dylan’s considerable legacy is now channelled through DT38, the Foundation which provides testicular cancer support and awareness through education and opportunity.

West Ham retired the No.38 shirt as a mark of respect after his untimely death.

Please join in this cancer awareness by joining in with a round of applause on 38 minutes after kick off tomorrow night.
