Anyone aware of any progress on the pop up venue for match days? I really hope it happens - think it's a great idea!

Was in there a couple of Sundays back along with mates commemorating a good friend of ours who died earlier this year. Just four lads in there watching the cricket and grand prix. If it's open for that on a Sunday you'd think it would be open for our matches.

ps - the view out of the back door looking towards what little is left of the ground was ****ing horrible. All gone except for one small part of the South West corner including one of the MDF towers minus a bit of its cladding. Like some ruined castle in a fantasy film. Even that's gone since I've been told.

Thanks to a significant number of people who have become members of the club. The funds are very welcome. Please visit http://www.whufcsc.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; and join to help us save the club.

The club hosted a very successful Boleyn Brick Salvage day yesterday. Many thanks to Donna / Debs / Jonjo and the rest of the team for making the day of the many fans who came along to collect their bricks. There were tears and smiles in equal measure !!!

The commemorative bricks were passed to the team when it was felt the builders could not just smash them down. Giving up their free time Donna and the team along with the HSC have tried to contact people in an effort to return the bricks. People have come from all over the country and abroad to collect their brick. No costs are involved but fans have kindly donated to the Bobby Moore Cancer Research fund. I understand about £700 was raised yesterday.

West Ham were not interested in this exercise. Well done to Ley Cosntruction, Donna & her team with help in hosting the events from the HSC. Ours fans have hearts of gold. Poor darts by West Ham United (again) - they missed a trick here for sure.

How hard would it have been for ONE person from the club to have gone along? It doesn't even need to have been Gold or Sullivan (although if healthy enough I think it's at an event like this that Gold is at his best - smiling, shaking hands, posing for photos, reminiscing about the good old days, etc). Poor darts indeed.

You may have seen a large Italian flag or two when you been to a match at UP or at the LS. These belong to the Italian Irons and a large group of them make the massive effort to watch West Ham. They are also frequent visitors to the Hammers Supporters Club where they are always most welcome.

The sad news has reached us that an extremely popular member of their group Enrico Lutzu has passed away.

WHUISA and the HSC send its sincere condolences to Enrico's family and friends.

R.I.P Enrico - We shall honour you as your friends wish on the 30th September.

We have been asked by the Italian Irons to send out the following message.

After West Ham United-Swansea match on Saturday September 30, we would like to invite all the people that knew Enrico and his family, all the people that maybe met him only one time or not, to this evening in his honour.

We want to remember Enrico with all the West Ham Family in the best way we know. In a kind of way that we know he would love. In one of his favourite places: the Supporters Club.

It will be a special night and we hope that everyone could come to remember Enrico with us.

p.s. We would like to say thank you so much to Aaron from Ironworks Tour and all the people at the Supporters Club.

Dopo il match West Ham United-Swansea di sabato 30 settembre, abbiamo il piacere di invitare tutti quelli che conoscevano Enrico e la sua famiglia, tutte le persone che lo hanno incontrato anche solo una volta o no, a questa serata in suo onore. Vogliamo ricordare Enrico con tuttala famiglia del West Ham nel miglior modo che conosciamo. In un modo che sappiamo a lui sarebbe piaciuto. In uno dei suoi posti preferiti: il Supporters Club. Sarà una serata speciale dove speriamo che ognuno di voi possa partecipare per ricordare Enrico insieme a noi.

Grazie a tutti.

Italian Irons :scarfer:

I am pleased to announce that the Hammers Supporters Club will be holding an evening with some of our famous and well liked ex players in an event to raise money for the Booby Moore Cancer Research fund and get much needed income from the bar takings to help keep the club going.

Phil Parkes will MC with Pat Holland and Kevin Lock as his guests. All 3 lads are FA Cup winners and will be appearing at the club to talk about those heady days in the 70's and early 80's when we won 2 FA Cups in 5 years.

Pat, of course, was part of the 1976 Cup Winners Cup team while Phil played in both our matches v Liverpool in the League Cup Final.

It should be a great evening at the club and remind us of the times we had there pre the LS move.

The date for your diary is Friday November 3rd. Time and price to be confirmed shortly.At present i believe there will be only 150 tickets.

A lot has been happening at the Hammers Supporters Club recently.

The new committee have recently opened the long promised hub in Stratford. We are grateful to the fine people at Stour Space on Roach Raod for allowing us to hire thier premises for match days. The opening match was Swansea and it was great to see so many people who used to come to the HSC at the old ground.

We will be open on Friday October 20th from 4pm-8pm for the Brighton match. The club is members only, no guests and you must show a valid membership card. We have a current capacity of about 220 and if this is exceeded we shall operate a one in / one out policy. If you wish to join please visit our website http://www.whufcsc.com

Unfortunately on the same day the committee had to close the premises on Castle Street after a recent Health & Safety review (instigated by the current committee) found the place to be unsafe and in a very poor state of repair. This situation has been inherited by the committee who have worked tirelessly to turn around the place. A number of fundraising events at the club have had to be cancelled and we are truly sorry for this but we had no option.

The committee have decided to launch a gofundme campaign to help raise funds for a refurbishment and an update to all systems that failed the H&S review. The club themselves are raising money through the sale of a small property owned by the club and will put this to the sum of about £150,000 which is needed. There is hardly any money left in the coffers and this is being looked into by the current committee with an independent review of recent accounts being undertaken.

Please go to https://www.whufcsc.com/save-our-club for more details.

This is a direct appeal to the West Ham family to help us out as we strive to keep the HSC going in Castle Street as well as go forward and set up new premises in Stratford.

If anyone can help please donate or PM me.

Thanks again to THE best fans in the land. :crest:

I can't see it stated anywhere how much they need to raise. Do we know how much the property referred to brought in?

The flat has yet to be sold. Money from that will have to be paid to repay the outstanding mortgage, a personal loan to the club, keep the club open as there are still costs in running the building as well as see a closing fund set by in case we cannot raise the money and so dissolve the HSC. Money will be needed to fund the hub in Stratford as we now have no other revenue stream coming in.

The money left from that sale etc will be added to the funds we will hopefully raise. Costings are still being sorted before the business can be organised / tendered. The HSC will put in as much money as possible towards the overall costs.

At present, due to very poor maintenance over the years, we may be looking at £100,000 plus.

We aim to be open (for the 21st century)as soon as possible. A significant number of improvements have been made since the new committee formed in June 2017 but the poor H&S review has superseded all that.

We are on our knees and need help.
