Umbro respond to petition success

Kit manufacturer Umbro have finally agreed to release a large version of their advertisement that first appeared in the final Boleyn Ground match day programme.

Following a concerted campaign by Hammers fan Mark Walker, Umbro have confirmed that they will release a scrollable version of the ad that is said to contain the name of every season ticket holder from the 2015/16 season.

The advert from pages 14-15 of the final Boleyn match day programme

In order to persuade Umbro to release the large-scale image, Walker was charged with collecting 1,000 signatures - a feat he achieved within a matter of weeks following a sustained effort.

And earlier today, the company confirmed via Twitter that they will adhere to Walker's request - as you can see from the Tweet below.

Walker's campaign - which as of time of writing had collected 1,076 signatures in all - was supported by Hammers from around the globe, including Ilford South MP (and season ticket holder) Mike Gapes.
