Ben-Morley_Lakeside-Hammers_Southend-Utd-FCAs the club build towards their opening meeting against the Eastbourne Eagles on Good Friday (14th April, first race 1pm),  Hammers Captain and Southend born Ben Morley took time out to visit Southend Utd’s Roots Hall stadium to help promote the Hammers before the SkyBet League one teams crucial match against Bolton Wanderers.

The Hammers Community Liaison Manager Mark Sexton, who arranged the visit commented:

“Despite the score line (The Blues lost to a last minute goal), it was a great opportunity to get out there and spread the word.

I’d like to thank Ben and the Hammers supporters who helped to distribute flyers before the game. I’d also like to send my thanks to Southend Utd FC for their help and support as part of the Hammers Community Programme.

Along with handing out flyers, all of their ball boys and girls and the evenings mascots were given complimentary tickets to the Hammers. This is a great example of the type of relationships we’ve been building over the last seven years, and we are very happy to develop further links and tie-ins with any other local clubs or organizations”

After the Meet the Riders night, the next event is Press and Practice which takes place at 1pm The Arena Essex Raceway on Thursday 13th April.
