West Ham to bring Hammerettes back

West Ham has decided to bring back the Hammerettes dance troop at half time to replace much crictised ‘Beat the BATAK’.

The dance troop were a regular and popular half time fixture at the Boleyn Ground with the cheerleaders dressed in Claret and Blue outfits complete with pom-poms.

The Hammerettes made their first-ever appearance for West Ham in January 1970 against Manchester United. After a popular debut performance, the Hammerettes became a regular feature until they disappeared in 2007. They were briefly brought back in 2010 but promptly left Upton Park again shortly afterwards.

Under the Equality Act the Hammerettes the dance troop must be open to applications from boys as well as girls so we could well see the first male Hammerette dance for us at the London Stadium

The Hammerettes will also feature on a new Netflix documentary that will follow their exploits as part of a new reality show.

POST 12 PM UPDATE: Apologies but the Hammerettes are not coming back for now! This article was our attempt at humour on April Fools day.

  1. It’s going to be tough knowing what’s true and what’s a wind up today, Hugh. I hope this one is genuine!

  2. While this may be a story written especially for today’s date, bringing them back would be a significant step up from what we have at the moment. Having Sir Trevor read passages from my current reading book on the political situation between Britain and Germany between 1841 and 1914 would no doubt be more appealing to possibly everyone that regularly visits here than the current half-time “entertainment”…

  3. Hope it is a wind up….The football is often embarrassing enough on its own.

  4. Anything is better than beat the Batak hope this is genuine also.

  5. What a waste of time and money. I’m sure they were all talented dancers, but did anyone ever pay attention to them? At the London |Stadium the centre circle is so far from the stands that they won’t be seen.

  6. Definitely a wind up. If it did happen you wouldn’t be able to see them anyway as these days we are sat too far away.

  7. I for one would definitely watch em.

  8. I see this was the April fool, perhaps you can now run a poll on replacements for the awful half time entertainment ? Myself and some others suggested any player not performing in the first half is put on a ducking stool where fans can line up to hit a target that would see them plunged into slime.
