Please note:
After a painful experience, this website has now been migrated to my new web-hosting company.  The reason for change, Adobe's 'End of Life' support for their 'FLASH' software which resulted in hundreds of thousands of websites to stop working.
Fortunately a lot of the content from my previous website has been saved but NOT all has transferred over. There are LOADS of PICTURE ‘LINKS’ not working, as they take you back to the HOME PAGE.

I’m taking this opportunity to rethink the whole website, with new designs going forward.

Please bear with me. I will make further announcements over the coming days and weeks.

It all began at the start of the 1968-69 season, the acquisition of my first matchday programme 17th August 1968 West Ham United v. Nottingham Forest. A game which saw Geoff Hurst scoring the only goal of the match, even a 1-4 home reverse against Everton two days later didn’t dampen my enthusiasm for my new found passion West Ham United and memorabilia associated with the Claret and Blue. By then it was too late, I was hooked.


   Happy collecting and remember...

The hardest decision a collector of football memorabilia is likely to have to make is what to collect. For me, it was a case of trying to draw a line under what not to collect.

Thankfully for me I didn’t succumb to that decision.
