SYD KING (Player 1901–1903) (1st West Ham United manager (1902-1932) Died this day (aged 59)

Although comparatively rich for an ex-player working in football, King's reputation as well as his career were in tatters following the termination of his contract nine days earlier. Syd King committed suicide by drinking alcohol mixed with a corrosive liquid. The inquest into his death declared that he had taken his life 'while of unsound mind'.

1932-33 FA Cup Semi-Final

George Watson and Tommy Cadwell had returned to our team after injury, but regular right-winger Tommy Yews was still incapacitated and had to give way to Wood. An early goal gave Everton a good start, but the Hammers got back into the game in the 42nd minute when Wilson caught the Blues' defence off balance and sent Morton away, a centre from the winger, and Vic Watson's head connected for the equaliser. However, this proved of no avail, and a further reply for the Blues put them into the Final - where they beat Manchester City 3-0.

ANDY MALCOLM (1953-1962) Born this day Upton Park, London

Andy Malcolm could not have turned out for a more local club than when he made his Hammers debut in December 1953. Born in Upton Park, he went on to play his part in West Ham's Division Two title-winning campaign in 1958. He was also the recipient of the Club's first Hammer of the Year award in the same year and played 306 games in the claret and blue before moving on in 1962. Chelsea was his next destination, and after half-a-season with the Blues he signed for Queens Park Rangers, where he played a further 84 league games. Malcolm's career ended with spells in South Africa, Greece and with Brentwood Town, and after spending time as landlord of pubs in Maldon and Latchington, he emigrated to Port Elizabeth, South Africa in 1986.

HARRY HOOPER (1950-1956) Born this day Pittington, County Durham


Dashing, goalscoring winger from Hylton Colliery, who was the star attraction at the Boleyn during his reign; made his Hammers debut in the 4-2 victory over Barnsley at Upton Park on the 3 February 1951. Whilst with Hammers he represented the Football League against the Irish League (1954) and the Scottish League (1955). When Wolverhampton Wanderers came dangling an open cheque book, there was little the club could do to stop their England Under-23 international from joining the then most famous club in the land for £25,000. However, the game turned sour on him at Molineux and he soon moved on to Birmingham City (there too, meeting with only moderate success). One wonders in retrospect, whether he'd have been better off staying with the "Homely Hammers".
