Get with the programme

The matchday programme returns for Wednesday's re-arranged Carling Cup first-round visit of Aldershot Town with another action-packed 84-page edition.

The fourth edition of the 2011/12 season sees new signing Joey O'Brien talking of his plan to regain his form and fitness with the Hammers, while Shots manager and Sam Allardyce fan Dean Holdsworth is the interviewee in Opposition View.

Freddie Sears answers your questions in Fans' Mailbag and Winston Reid reveals his five Biggest Matches, while John Carew is hoping to make his first start in a claret and blue shirt on Wednesday evening.

Ian 'Moose' Abrahams catches up with legendary yearbook editor Jack Rollin, while columnist Ken Dyer speaks positively about the impact made by new boss Allardyce.

In the first of his new occasional columns, stadium announcer Jeremy Nicholas looks back on more than a decade of 'Taking the Mike' at the Boleyn Ground.

With all this, plus exclusive columns from Chairman David Gold and manager Allardyce and the latest from the club's development squad, youth and Ladies teams, supporters cannot afford to miss Wednesday's issue.

The matchday programme will be available in and around the Boleyn Ground, priced £3.50.

*Tickets will be available to buy through the turnstiles right up to kick-off on Wednesday evening, with all paying just £5 for kids and £10 for adults.

All parts of the ground will have cash turnstiles in operation in the lead up to kick-off at 7.45pm except for the Bobby Moore Stand Lower tier. A large walk-up is expected on the night so supporters are advised to get to the ground in good time.
