West Ham – Squad and a few stats..

Chris and Dave have picked a squad of 17 for Saturday’s game against West Ham – Having 2 keepers allows us one extra from the usual 16. The squad is based on recent away game attendance, thanks to Murph for offering to miss out.

The squad is –
Tom, Jez, Jamie, Aidy, Matt A, Stone, Dan, Phil, Grino, Ed, Big Stu, Stu N, Panos, Myall, Joel, Soloway and Jimmy.
Stand by –
Murph, Wazza.

Please could all players be there by 9.45 sharp.

West Ham are well on course to becoming our most played opponents. This will be the 20th time we’ve met – only the 4th IFA team we’ve played that many times – we’ve also met Forest and Fulham 20 times and QPR are our most played opponent – we’ve met them 24 times.

Our last win was a 2-0 success in the Stevenage Tournament in 2010, and our last league win was a 6-0 victory in November 2007. Our leading scorer against West Ham is Murph with 6 – Mathers and Jimmy have 5 each while Polly, Dundon and Wazza have 3. A total of 25 different players have scored.

It’s a girl!!

We’re delighted to report that Millie Jane Keedy Wells arrived safe and well and joined the WIFC junior ranks at 22:44 last night ! Our very own ginger badger reports that Millie weighed in at a healthy 7lbs 1oz.. Sarah and Millie are both doing well. Huge congratulations to Wellsy and Sarah from all at WIFC !
