Our Southend born, Hammers number one Ben Morley will be making a special guest appearance at tonight’s crucial SkyBet League One fixture between Southend United FC and fellow promotion chasers Bolton Wanderers.
The visit to Roots Hall has been arranged to help promote the start of the Hammers 2017 National League season and, as a massive crowd is expected, huge Blues fan Morley is delighted to be invited.
Hammers Club officials will also be taking the opportunity to spread the word with leaflets and in person, with the Hammers Community Liaison Manager Mark Sexton adding:
“The Hammers would like to extend their thanks to James Sharples of SUFC’s Commercial team for his assistance in helping us promote the launch of our new speedway season.
We’d love any Hammers or Blues fans attending the match to share pictures of Ben’s visit via Twitter, Instagram or Facebook using the hashtag #BluesBen (and mentioning The Hammers via @lakesidehammers and The Blues via @SUFCRootsHall if possible!) and we’ll look to arrange the opportunity to watch some races from the Centre Green at The Raceway for the best.”
If any Hammers fans attending tonight are able to assist and help the club by giving out leaflets before the game, please call Mark Sexton on 07951 698363 who will confirm arrangements.
