Hammers fan gets kit man chance

Hammers fan Tony Wright managed to fulfil a boyhood dream when he was invited behind the scenes as the Sure Men kit man for the day at the recent Boleyn Ground game with Tottenham Hotspur.

After entering a competition in the Sunday Times, Tony won a signed shirt, complete with his name and number on the back, as well as the chance to see what goes into West Ham kit manager Pete Williams' day in preparation for a top flight fixture.

The experience also included assisting Williams distribute the Sure Men product around the dressing room ready for the players to use, and the opportunity for photos in the dugout.

A thrilled Tony told whufc.com: "It was a great experience, absolutely fantastic - a real pleasure to get the opportunity to go into the dressing room and see how it all works.

"I was reading the paper on the day before the game and in an interview with Winston Reid I saw a competition, giving you the chance to be the kit man for the day.

"So I was there in the dressing room, with my shirt between Carlton and Joe Cole's. It was a boyhood dream to play for West Ham, that didn't quite materialise but at least I've got to go in the dressing rooms now."
