Dev on air - and Wardy too!

Filed: Monday, 7th May 2012
By: Staff Writer No.2

Alan Devonshire and Mark Ward are set to appear in a special edition of West Ham podcast Stop! Hammertime.

The popular podcast, on which our own Gordon Thrower makes regular guest appearances, will be recording a live special edition on Monday 14th May at the Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club to be presented by the usual team of Phil Whelans and Jim Grant aided and assisted by Sam Delaney.

Devonshire was a member of the side that won the FA Cup in 1980, his run and cross from the left causing all sorts of problems for the Arsenal defence before Trevor Brooking famously headed home from close range to bring the Cup home. Dev went on to play in the side that finished in third place in the top flight in the 1985/86 season.

Mark Ward was an ever-present in that 85/86 side, which came so close to winning the league. After leaving United he played for Manchester City, Everton and Birmingham before joining a succession of clubs on a short-term basis. After his retirement from the game he encountered a number of personal problems, a clue to the nature of which can be gained from the title of his book “From Right Wing To B-Wing: Premier League To Prison”.

As well as what promises to be some fascinating stuff from the ex-Hammers, the evening’s entertainment will include a Hammers Quiz, a raffle and music and comedy from Celebrity Hammers.

Tickets for the event, which kicks off at 7pm are £20 each and are available from We Got Tickets through the following link:
