West Ham fans react as East Ham Working Men’s Club “bites the dust”

The East Ham working men’s club will soon be consigned to the history books, with work having started to turn it into a five-story residential building.

An agreement was reached in March for the works to happen, as reported by The Newham Recorder, however, this has not done much to ease the sense of loss West Ham United fans are feeling.

The club was an important part of the matchday experience for many during West Ham’s time at Upton Park, so there were plenty of fans who have been left disappointed:

Following the start of the works, many fans have been reminiscing about their time spent at the Boleyn Ground and the working men’s club.

Was the move to London Stadium the right decision?

Yes

Yes

No

No

This seems to act as yet another reminder of the history that has been taken from them and the club since the move to London Stadium.

A selection of Twitter reaction to the update, including posts from reminiscing West Ham fans, can be seen below:
