Visiting island with a gift for West Ham’s Best player
I am visiting Bermuda in June mainly owing to Clyde Best as I am a West Ham United fan and had the pleasure of seeing Clyde play for us in the Seventies — in goal once. I always as a kid said “one day I am going to Bermuda”.
West Ham United are moving to the Olympic Stadium next season and on Tuesday night, May 10, we had our last game at Upton Park versus Manchester United — we won 3-2.
The club invited every player that had played at the ground to the last match. I don't know if Clyde was there, but if he wasn't, the club gave every fan a commemorative T-shirt of the night and I would like to present one of these to Clyde if possible when I am in Bermuda.
I can understand if he declined, but I wonder if you or someone in your organisation could contact him and ask if this would be OK.
