Sister Club

Women's team host open training session for Sister Club partners

On Friday 12 April, West Ham United women’s team welcomed their Sister Clubs to Chigwell Construction Stadium for an exclusive open training session.

Over 500 young people and their accompanying adults from FC Redwing, Elite Colts, Broomfield Girls, Wo Sports, Tigers JFC, Valley Green, Grays Athletic, This Girl's Ability, Island Girls and Hassenbrook FC headed to Dagenham to watch the first team train after their return from international action earlier in the week.

They were treated to a number of competitions and challenges that were hosted by Nancy Baker, including a keepy-up and freestyle contest, with the winners set to receive a number of prizes from the Club.

Before training, women’s first team manager Rehanne Skinner provided an overview of what those in attendance could expect to see during the 75-minute session.

Then it was time to watch the team train, with the players showing their support for the DT38 Foundation, the male cancer charity founded in memory of Dylan Tombides.

This month marks the tenth anniversary of the passing of the promising Australian striker, who sadly died at the age of 20 in April 2014, three years after initially being diagnosed with testicular cancer.

Sister Clubs of West Ham United women’s team receive benefits ranging from signed merchandise and exposure on, to discounted tickets and chances to meet first-team players and coaching staff.

Opportunities may also arise where clubs can be part of our matchday experience and help us to create a buzz at our home matches.
