About me

I am a Kent FA Sunday league and Kent youth league referee. Both my boys play at a good level. Season ticket holder upper east at Upton Park and Trevor Brooking lower at the London stadium.

How I came to support West Ham

I was born in Manor Park and used to walk to the ground with my grandad and father.

My best West Ham memory

Has to be old Trafford last game of the season 2007. I was fortunate to be there with my son. There’s only one Carlos Tevez.

The best West Ham game I’ve ever seen

Eintracht Frankfurt. Upton Park. April 1976. Fantastic atmosphere in the chicken run in the rain. Last ever game at Upton park has to be up there too.
