Football Association Chairman David Bernstein showed his support for West Ham United's continued work in the community by joining Joint-Chariman David Gold for a visit to a local school ahead of the Sunderland game.
Bernstein and Mr Gold joined stadium announcer Jeremy Nicholas and Deputy Stadium Manager Nigel Dennis on visit to the St Edward's School, which is situated right next to the Boleyn Ground Stadium, just before kick-off last Saturday.
Waiting for them there were 120 children from Hartley and St Edward's schools, who had been invited to watch the match as guests of West Ham United. The youngsters were then given the chance to put questions to the group in a special Q+A session.
Mr Bernstein and Mr Gold were asked questions ranging from what they do on a matchday to whether they enjoy doing their jobs. After some light-hearted answers, the group posed for a picture and the children took their seats in the Sir Trevor Brooking Stand to watch the enthralling 1-1 draw.
Both schools were given the opportunity after joining West Ham United's Football For All 2012 programme. If you would like to register your school's interest, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Danielle on 0208 586 8121.
