West Ham United in the Southern League 1900-1915
By John Powles
A4 sized paperback, illustrated. Price £14
Powles’ previous book (Iron in the Blood) told the story of the Thames
Ironworks football club. In 1900,
the company withdrew its support and the club we know today as West Ham United
of the South takes up the story with the formation of the new club and tells
of its time in the Southern League. The
book provides a detailed season-by-season account of key events, with profiles
of the leading players. Extracts
from contemporary newspaper accounts give a flavour of the football of the time.
Illustrations include many player portraits and team groups.
Full statistical details of the games played by club are included.
The book is an A4
sized paperback book of 148 pages. The
price is £14. Copies are available from specialist sports booksellers,
Newham bookshops and by post from Tony Brown.
If ordering by post, please send a cheque or postal order for £15.50
