I read a book called "Nearly reached the sky,a farewell to the Boleyn" by a bloke called Brian Williams. Chief sports writer for the guardian/observer. A massive hammers fan,season ticket holder and by the sound of it all round nice guy. A lot of memories from the late sixties right up to the last game at the Boleyn. I enjoyed it so much I felt compelled to email him And he took the time to reply which gets him another couple of brownie points in my book!
