Emergency meeting postponed

An emergency meeting to determine whether the West Ham Supporters Club should be save has been postponed.

The gathering, which had been scheduled for this Sunday has been cancelled at the last minute due to concerns over the number of new members being signed up by existing committee members.

However members who are fighting to keep the club in business are still urging supporters to attend the Boleyn on the corner of Green Street and Barking Road on Sunday evening in order to deliver a vote of no confidence in the club's existing committee.

Last year club members voted in favour of dissolving the club, winning a poll by 17 votes to 10. However an emergency meeting was subsequently set up for this weekend - 25 March - although that has now been postponed.

One of the key issues for those who wish to keep the Supporters Club in business is that anyone who has been a member for longer than eight years stands - thought to equate to around 720 members - stand to land a share of its assets upon the club's dissolution.

And as a result, each member can expect to land a windfall of around 6,500 due to a rule in the club's constitution that states all proceeds from the club's sale will be shared equally amongst its long-term members.
