l joined the club at 13 years of age on school boy forms - scouted by Len Hurford who nicked me away from the Ipswich scout. I was in the age group year above Tony Cottee and the year below Bobby Barnes. I don't think anyone from my year went on to play first team football, although Wayne Reader did play for England school boys.

 

I made my youth league team debut as soon as I was old enough at 16 in the senior league with Bobby Barnes etc. I was at the club for 4 years and when I wasn't offered an apprenticeship Ipswich tempted me away mid way through the following season. (Ipswich in 1980 was no bad place to go!)

 

A couple of intresting points - when I joined the club the "New" indoor pitch and changing rooms didn't exist at Chadwell Heath. We used to train in the playground of the school next to the front of the ground under a single floodlight mounted on the outside of the main stand - kids with less than perfect eyesight didn't get on.

 

Training was taken by Mick McGiven and Ronnie Boyce who fought like cat and dog. Then they roped in Anton Outalakowski and first year pro Alvin Martin to help!

 

During my second or third year at the club Tony Carr joined the youth team staff and the rest is history!

 

John Lyall took a real interest in the youth team and often came to games and spoke to us in the changing room. A real nice guy.

 

Eddie Bailey had passion for football, he's the stand out guy for me - he used pop in on training sessions and then keep us there all bloody night until one team had strung together 20 first time passes. That was when the "West Ham style of play" was everything.

Bill made the dream start to his Hammers career as a member of the Youth side which won the South East Counties League Division 2 Final against Crystal Palace a 2-1 aggregate victory in September 1979.
