West Ham United played their last game at Upton Park on May 7th, ahead of their move to the Olympic Stadium next season. However, last week, a group of YBC members got the opportunity to play in the last game at the famous old stadium in a charity match to raise money for a local hospice.
The standard of the football played may not have been high but, the fact that there were 3 penalties given in the game, showed that there was plenty of commitment on display.
It was a proud moment for all concerned but especially for the West Ham supporters amongst us. For them it was a bitter sweet moment as the ground will shortly be demolished to make way for a new development. Happy memories nevertheless!
