The West Ham Utd Collection
West Ham Utd is one of the great names in football, the Hammers' history studded with great players, great matches and great events. This book covers the history of the club, with nearly 200 photos of the players and matches involved.
Formed in 1895 as the works team of Thames Ironworks, they were renamed West Ham United in 1900 when they turned professional. The Hammers took part in the first Wembley Cup Final in 1923.
They won the cup for the first time in 1964, following up with Wembley victories in 1975 and 1980. In 1966 England won the World Cup with the help of three Hammers players - Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters.
Two months earlier, the Hammers had made history in their own right by winning the European Cup-winners Cup with an all-Englash eleven. This is a wonderful record of some of the greatest days in the history of this great club.
