It's a long way to Tipperary...Hammers Ready for Season's Opener

"It's a long way to Tipperary" ...errrr, actually it's not if you happen to already live there! Ask West Ham's newest supporters club - DergHammers - who are located in the Lough Derg region, overlooking the beautiful Shannon. Yes, it's a long way from East London, but with the ease of access to the Olympic Stadium from Stansted, the crew plan to increase their annual trips this year.

Formed in 2012 as part of the VERYWESTHAM 'thing', membership is currently running at 15. With SuperSlav's troops ready to truly set the Premiership alight this season, we can expect a flood of new members to join the hardened veterans who have laughed the laughs and endured the pain for many's a half-decade!

Tonight's game should clear the cobwebs, and while many folk whinge that participation in the Europa league makes for a supershort Summer, let's face it - we are all getting twitchy and are keen to get going again. Moreover, last year's Premiership opener against the Gooners of Middle Arse demonstrated the merits of a competitive pre-season!

Moreover, it'll be a great chance to get a look at some of the's hoping Lewis Page, Josh Cullen and the lads get some game time.
