We have spoken to a number of West Ham social accounts and all have in principal agreed to share the content across their respective mediums, which I thank them all for personally! There is some exciting partnerships forming which will be the best thing for this club, and really be ablate push it to be the absolute best it can be in terms of content! We are currently speaking to a ThamesIronsWorks2few companies in regards to sponsoring the club going forward, and perhaps buying some of the kit we need. In terms of Kit, as we need a home and a change, we have decided to have an all navy strip as our home (league permitting of course) and have a claret and blue away. We have identified the ones that fit us best and mocked them up, so it gives us an idea of how they will look, and I must say I’m more than happy! Everyone that donates will receive a full lifetime membership to the club, and we will also be sending you a little gift when we reach our goal! Once again thank you so much for your support of this great community project.”
