Ex-Hammers such as ERNIE GREGORY (1946 - 1959), ALAN DICKIE (1962 - 1965), MARK SMITH (1979), along with youth player STEPHEN GILL (1968 - 1971) were the first to entrust to be photographed their most prized possessions, their Medals, Trophies and mementoes awarded while wearing the claret and blue for West Ham United.


To be able to get a close-up view of these awards and mementoes in games such as the 'Andrews Cup', 'Winchester Cup' and also the 'Forest Division' League, and in more recent times the 'South East Counties League' are priceless as these Competitions and Leagues have long since disappeared off the football calendar.


Over the years more-and-more of these treasured players' mementoes have found there way onto the auction catalogues, never to be seen again. Goalkeeper Jim Standen's 1965 European Cup Winners' Cup medal was sold at Christie's auction back in 1994. Fortunately for 'theyflysohigh' an image was secured.


More recently Frank Piercy's Nine carat gold medal from 1923, given by the club to their assistant trainer to commemorate reaching the F.A. Cup Final and winning promotion to the First Division in the same season went under the Hammer (pardon the pun).


Were you a Youth, Reserve or First team player, a family member or collector and would like to contribute an image from your collection. Please, please get in touch, all that's required is to send a reasonable image of your medal, trophy or memento for inclusion.
