JOHNNY BYRNE

Augsburg 02

The B.C. Augsburg Football Club of Germany first invited the Hammers to compete in their annual Youth Tournament in June 1963. The West Ham United 'Colts' topped their 'Group 2' table by defeating West German sides Bayern Munich 3-0, Schwaben Augsburg 2-0 and Boldklubben Copenhagen from Denmark 1-0. In the final they meet Group 'A' winners AS Cannes from France, the youngsters triumphed 2-1 after extra time. The Colts side successfully defended the trophy in 1964 against Italian side FC Bologna.

Our third visit during the 1965 Whitsun period provided us with an unique opportunity, for it was a rule of the competition that three successive championships made the winners the permanent holders. Our 1964-65 record did not make us favourites this time, but our youngsters rose to the occasion.

In the group games we defeated Borussia Dortmund (West Germany) by 2-0 a goalless draw with B.C. Augsburg and then beat San Remo (Italy) by 2-0.

 

For the second successive season our opponents in the final were Italian club - FC Bologna.

 

Barry Simmons netted for us early in the first half, and our solid defence maintained its record of not conceding a goal in the competition so that we emerged as 1-0 victors to bring the trophy back to the Boleyn Ground.
