Following my Olympic Stadium season ticket appointment at Stratford Westfield Shopping Centre yesterday we decided to check out the local boozers to celebrate with a pint.
The only pub we could find located within the Westfield shopping centre is called the Cow so ClaretandHugh Club historian Nigel Kahn, together with a fellow season ticket holders and myself, headed there afterwards for a pint.
Speaking to the pub manager, she confirmed West Ham fans will be welcome on match days when they will move back all the tables to create more room and put extra security on the doors.
Before you get excited at this prospect as your new match day boozer I should point out that a round of three pints came to over £15 so not quite West Ham Supporters Club prices.
I understand both the Black Lion in Plaistow and the Boleyn pub in Green street are considering laying on transport to ferry supporters from their pubs to the new stadium next season. The West Ham supporters club are also considering options to help keep their customers.
