A chance to win a perfect book for West Ham fans just in time for Christmas

With Christmas just around the corner, what gift can you get to make a West Ham fan of a certain age happy?

Well, how about a definitive guide to West Ham’s time at Upton Park with a brand new book written by local author Tony Hogg?

‘A Castle on Green Street’ is a painstakingly researched, superbly detailed account of the Hammers time at the Boleyn – and this is only volume one!

What stands out are the stunning photographs, some never seen before, which light up the pages.

There is the story of how the Hammers came to move in to Upton Park back in 1904, the way they built it up into a big stadium over the years and the way they thrived in the Football League.

All the while there are pictures plotting their path to success, showing the players of the day as they advanced to the first ever Wembley final.

There are programme covers, pictures from a host of magazines featuring West Ham stars and all the time the author, with immaculate research, gives us the stories to go with it.

The book is priced at £30, but for your chance to win one of two copies we are offering, simply answer the following question:

Q: Who scored West Ham’s first goal against champions Wolves at Upton Park on their return to the First Division in 1958?

a) John Bond

b) John Dick

c) John Byrne

Email your answer to dave.evans@archant.co.uk to reach us by midday on November 29 to be entered into a draw.

If you are not one of the lucky winners, you can still buy the book – a perfect Christmas present – by ringing author Tony Hogg on 07949 122789 to order one.
