Sullivan's tactical withdrawal

Filed: Tuesday, 20th March 2018
By: Staff Writer

David Sullivan will not be attending tomorrow night's friendly between Dagenham and West Ham United.

The match, which has been arranged to raise funds for the cash-strapped non-league side is set to bring thousands of Hammers fans to the Daggers' Victoria Road ground.

However the club's chairman will not be one of those, with Sullivan apparently having decided to refrain from attending the game in order to minimise the potential for more unsavoury scenes.

Sullivan was the chief target for protesters during last weekend's defeat against Burnley at Stratford. He also claimed to have been hit by a coin during the fracas, although no evidence of this has been provided.

Fellow Board members David Gold and Karren Brady - boith of whom were also targeted by protesters last Saturday - are also expected to stay away from the match.

However all three are expected to return to the Directors' Box when West Ham face Southampton, despite many fans calling for them to stay away for the remainder of the season.
