I was very lucky to have been awarded second place prize at the West Ham Utd Player Awards dinner in May (see previous post). The prize was being guest of West Ham’s joint chairmen for the pre-season friendly vs UC Sampdoria (and I could also bring along my partner, Patricia and my brother Ian and his son – Michael (both lifelong Hammers fans).
As part of the Prize, I got to choose the man of the match and present the award. I choose one of our most reliable players – Mark Noble – who was a pivotal part of our display. Peter Rayney Tax Consulting Ltd was also featured on the screen as the Match Day sponsor.
We thoroughly appreciated the kind hospitality shown by everyone at the club, especially chairmen David Gold, David Sullivan, Jill Moore, Julie O’Leary, and Charley Harding, for making it a magical memorable day…
Here are some photos from our adventure…
