Official Programme remembers West Ham United legend Martin Peters

Leicester programme cover


The late, great Martin Peters MBE rightly dons the cover of issue eleven of West Ham United's 116-page Official Programme – Hammer – for the 2019/20 season.

The 1966 FIFA World Cup winner passed away peacefully in his sleep in the early hours of Saturday 21 December, following a long and courageous battle with illness. He is the fifth member of English football’s greatest-ever team now sadly lost – along with Alan Ball, Ray Wilson, Gordon Banks and his fellow Academy of Football graduate and great friend, Bobby Moore.

Moore, Peters and 1966 hat-trick hero Sir Geoff Hurst will stand eternal as West Ham’s three proudest sons – homegrown graduates of the famed Claret and Blue youth ranks, who led the Hammers to European Cup Winners' Cup glory in 1965 and then England to world dominance a year later.

Saturday's Official Programme contains tributes to the legendary midfielder, who scored exactly 100 goals in 364 appearances in Claret and Blue after graduating from the Academy of Football.

The publication sees the Club make a move away from the traditional format to produce a football magazine that will maintain supporters’ interest long after the final whistle.

With cutting-edge design, exclusive interviews, attention-grabbing opinions and eye-catching photographs, plus the regular news, columns and statistics and insightful content from across all areas of the Club, Hammer is the definitive Claret and Blue publication for West Ham fans.

Priced at just £3.50, Hammer is also the best-value matchday magazine anywhere in the Premier League. Issue eleven for Saturday's Premier League fixture with Leicester City is available to order now online.
