Hammers VS Tykes in pictures

18 Dec

A sold-out Boleyn Ground crowd saw the Hammers win 1-0 at home to Barnsley on Saturday – and the whufc.com cameras were there to capture the best moments.

The 35k attendance was the second-biggest in England on the day, magnificent support that led Joint-Chairman David Sullivan to send a message of thanks to every single supporter who turned out on a freezing day in east London.

West Ham United end the weekend just a point behind leaders Southampton and go to Birmingham City on Boxing Day in good spirits.

Mr Sullivan said: “It was superb to see the stadium full like that and I am sure it played a part in the team getting a much-needed victory. As a Board we wanted to cut prices in the last home game before Christmas and we were rewarded with fantastic support.

“Although season ticket holders still get the best value over the whole campaign, and we just had a 20 per cent discount weekend for them in the club stores, it is important that we fill Upton Park. The next home game on 2 January against Coventry City is Kids for a Quid and we hope we can have another full house.

“I’d like to thank everyone again for their terrific support this year and wish them a great Christmas.”
