Celebrate West Ham's play-off Final appearance in style with one of KUMB.com's exclusive t-shirts...
West Ham reached the Final of the play-offs yesterday after beating Cardiff City 3-0 at the Boleyn Ground to win 5-0 on aggregate, following the 2-0 win at the Cardiff City Stadium last Thursday.
That means a return to Wembley for the Hammers for the first time since 1981 when Ray Stewart's last-minute penalty earned John Lyall's side a replay against the all-conquering Liverpool side of the late '70s and early '80s.
Our first design celebrates West Ham's eight previous appearances at the national stadium, beginning with the first FA Cup Final held there in 1923.
17 years later West Ham returned to beat Blackburn in the 1940 War Cup Final, before making two appearances in the space of 12 months when beating Preston 3-2 in 1964's FA Cup Final and Munich a year later in the Cup Winners Cup Final.
Another decade passed before West Ham came back to beat second division Fulham under the iconic Twin Towers courtesy of a brace from Alan Taylor, whilst the tables were turned five years later when the Division Two Hammers beat Arsenal 1-0 thanks to Trevor Brooking's stooping header.
NEW DESIGNS: Our latest additions to the KUMB Shop showing the two new tees and close-ups of the artwork
Our second new design is a nod to the 'She Wore A Claret Ribbon' song, which reverberated around the Boleyn Ground yesterday once it became clear that a trip to Wembley was in the bag.
