A special supporter

Barry Dunsdon was the winner of the club's inaugural Supporter of the Season award - presented in association with SBOBET.

The Hornchurch-based Hammer, who turns 60 on 29 May, was singled out by his friends for his loyal support since coming to the Boleyn Ground for the first time back in 1958. Barry has not missed a home match - save for two cup fixtures - since 11 September 1971.

Barry comes to matches - including away games - with a blind friend and helps him to enjoy the matchday experience. He was nominated by all his mates in the West Stand, who described him as a "genuinely nice guy" when putting him forward for the award. He was presented with his prize by SBOBET chairman Mr Wong.
