Given the lack of football at present due to the Coronavirus, and the consequent lack of match previews, I’ll be occasionally delving into Hammers history with some ‘On This Day’ features and birthday celebrations for Hammers past.

Jadon Sancho was born the day before and singer Ian Dury died the day after.

In the first of two featured games today, we travel back exactly 20 years to 26th March 2000, a time when Tony Blair was Prime Minister, ‘Never Be The Same Again’ by Melanie C was number one and Toy Story 2 topped the UK box office.



The Hammers ran out 2-1 winners in front of 22,438 spectators at the Boleyn Ground that day, in a game that will forever be remembered for one of the greatest goals the old stadium ever saw.

The Hammers ran out 2-1 winners in front of 31,033 spectators at the Boleyn Ground that evening, taking the lead in the 26th minute through Mark Noble’s penalty after Hull ‘keeper Allan McGregor was sent off for bringing down Mohamed Diame.

In the second of our two featured matches, we travel back exactly six years to 26th March 2014, when David Cameron was Prime Minister, ‘I Got U’ by Duke Dumont featuring Jax Jones was number one and The Grand Budapest Hotel was in UK cinemas.

Noble was voted Hammer of the Year for the second time, with Adrian runner-up, in a season which saw Manchester City win the league title and Arsenal beat Hull to be crowned FA Cup winners.
