One-Two-Five | Episode One: Colin


Fans have always been the beating heart of West Ham United.

Change will always be prevalent over 125 years of history as a football Club, but the unspoken constant, ever-prevailing, has been the unwavering support of West Ham fans, young and old alike.

To commemorate West Ham United’s 125th anniversary year – it was in 1895 that Thames Ironworks FC were formed – West Ham TV are celebrating the unique anecdotes, memories and connections which have bound supporters to the Club for life.

Throughout the mini-documentary series, we'll speak to Hammers fans, young and old, about their memories following their beloved West Ham United.

Our first episode centres on Colin Cornell, a West Ham fan of 63 years, who has therefore supported the Club for over half of its entire history.

The East London local and active Any Old Irons member discusses his earliest memories of Boleyn Ground, his time spent following the Irons on the road, his attendance of European finals and showpiece occasions – and his optimism for the Claret and Blue future.

Do any of Colin's memories resonate with you? Watch the video above to find out.
