Rhyming Ralph's ode to West Ham wins #HammersAtHome daily challenge!

Ralph Styles with his winning poem


Rhyming Ralph Styles is the winner of our second #HammersAtHome daily challenge!

West Ham United women’s star Tessel Middag asked young Hammers fans to pen ‘Pretty Poems In The Air’ by writing and/or performing a Claret and Blue-themed poem.

Eleven-year-old Ralph’s three-verse composition, entitled ‘I love you West Ham’, was selected as the winner by Dutch midfielder Middag, and his reward will be to see his poem published in the Official Programme, on whufc.com and the Club’s social media channels. Congratulations Ralph!

I love you West Ham

I love you West Ham, you’re the best.
I feel so happy when I touch the crest.

Next season let’s win the FA Cup.
And this season let’s stay up.

I love you West Ham, you’re the best.
Now, let’s make the London Stadium our nest!

You could be a #HammersAtHome like Ralph, too, by keeping an eye out for our daily challenges, which will be announced on whufc.com and the Club’s social media channels at 11am each and every weekday in term time.

They could be physical football or other sports-related exercises, or creative literacy or numeracy-based tasks, or something completely different!

The daily challenges form part of #HammersAtHome – a new online community initiative offering support, assistance and regular interaction with the Club’s fans during this uniquely challenging and unprecedented time.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak meaning many children are now at home, we want our #HammersAtHome challenges to act as a motivation for schoolwork and rewarding youngsters’ efforts so keep an eye out every morning and, who knows, you could win a Claret and Blue reward!
