Nine matchworn West Ham United shirts are up for auction to raise funds for a children's charity.

The shirts of Adrian, Andy Carroll, Stewart Downing, Matt Jarvis, George McCartney, Kevin Nolan, Mark Noble, Matt Taylor and James Tomkins, worn in Saturday's 2-0 victory over Swansea City, are up for grabs in aid of Heartlink Children's Charity, which is seeking to raise £40,000 in order to purchase a new ECMO machine.

The appeal comes after Hammers fan Iain Page almost lost his baby daughter Willow when she suffered a stroke and three heart attacks last year.

Iain and his wife Denise were warned that should Willow survive, she would face being left brain damaged as a result. However following months of hospital care, little Willow has made an amazing, unexpected recovery and is now a healthy one-year-old.

Having been made aware of the family's plight previously, Hammers skipper Kevin Nolan arranged for Iain and Denise to be guests of honour at last weekend's clash with Swansea - the first time they'd had a day out together since Willow was taken ill.

Immediately following the game, Nolan delivered nine match-worn shirts from the match to be auctioned for the charity

Bidding for the nine shirts began on the forum on Tuesday. To place a bid for any of the shirts, simply reply to the thread stating your bid; please note that only registered members may bid.
