PRE-SEASON PRACTICE MATCHES
After the pre-season practice matches West Ham United stated that the £143 receipts had been released for allocation to various charities, and that £60 of the total would go to the Prince of Wales Relief Fund (the War Fund). The players themselves had decided to send donations every week to the War Fund, and in their spare time they would be putting in a few hours rifle practice in the Boleyn Social Club grounds next door to the ground.
