Vanessa Gold: “Claret and blue is in my blood …thanks Dad”

West Ham’s newly appointed Joint Chairman has penned an open letter in the London Evening Standard
We are more than happy top publish it here knowing that her father will be a proud and delighted to hear what his beloved daughter has to say about him and his West Ham connections since childhood ….and hers as a result.
Vanessa has now been appointed to the board and could hardly be prouder after watching teh Hammers home and away with her father since that those childhood days.
She says that knowing the other members of the board well she will be doing all in her power to have the club aiming higher.
Her appointment suggests that there will be no takeover of the club for some time to come if at all after inheriting some of part of the Gold shares, on whom David Sullivan has forst call ahead of Daniel Kretinsky.
Here’s the letter from Vanessa:
“Claret and Blue are in my blood — they always have been. My sister, Jacqueline, and I grew up with West Ham United woven into the very fibre of our childhood. I still vividly remember our first visit to a home game — my Dad, DG, holding our hands, walking us through the gates at Upton Park, the roar of the crowd and the edge-of-your-seat excitement of the game. That was it for me. The love affair began that day, and has grown stronger with every match, the good and the bad. To be a Gold is to be a Hammer.

West Ham were always our team, our great love, but to become joint-chair of the club? Well, that wasn’t a position I ever expected to be talking to you about today. That was my Dad’s role, the one both my sister and I watched him do with pride. I loved seeing the happiness it brought him, the endless hours he’d spend on the terraces, in the changing rooms, and on the pitch if they’d have him. Family first for my Dad, always, but .
