West Ham United played the first of a scheduled four matches against A.I.K. Stockholm on 14 May 1935. The players left the hotel for the Stadium at 5.30 p.m. Snow showers were in evidence, but this did not prevent the Swedish people turning out to witness what proved lo be a very exciting game.
The Hammers' side was : —
Conway, Chalkley, Walker, Collins, Barrett, Cockroft, Morton, Marshall, Fenton, Goulden, Ruffell.
The match kicked-off in front of 17,000 spectators, and after some delightful football James Marshall scored with a very fine shot. John Morton scored a second goal from the wing, the ball going into the net off one of the A.I.K. players. The Swedish players, however, made great efforts to turn the tide, and a ding-dong game resulted in seven more goals being scored before the final whistle went. The Hammers were victors by 5-4, our other goals being scored by Ted Fenton (2) and another from Morton.
The officials had the pleasure of being presented to Prince Charles upon his arrival at the Stadium, and at half-time His Royal Highness went on the field and shook hands with each of the players.
