Boro welcome Premier League giants in opening home friendly this weekend
Premier League West Ham United will visit The Lamex Stadium in a high-profile pre-season friendly this coming Saturday and tickets are still available!
The Hammers will make the short trip from East London on Saturday 12th July (3pm) as they gear up for the 2014/15 Premier League season.
Under Sam’s Allardyce’s leadership West Ham secured a mid-table finish in 2013/14 and will provide tough opposition for Boro as they prepare for a season in Sky Bet League 2.
Whilst the two sides have never met competitively, a number of current West Ham players have previously played at The Lamex. Kevin Nolan was part of the Newcastle United squad that lost 3-1 to Stevenage in the FA Cup Fourth Round in 2011. The experienced midfielder then returned with Hammers team-mates Andy Carroll, Matt Jarvis, James Collins, Mark Noble and Joe Cole (now at Aston Villa) for last year’s Mitchell Cole Benefit Game, in memory of the former Hammers and Boro winger.
Tickets for this exciting pre-season friendly are still available online now at www.borotickets.co.uk or in the Boro Shop, which is open Tuesday 10am-5pm, Wednesday 1pm-7pm, Thursday 10am-5pm and Friday 10am-5pm.
