Dunmow United Sharks U8 who played a tournament at Upton Park


With West Ham United moving from Upton Park to the Olympic Stadium next season, Dunmow United Sharks U8s are one of the last few teams to play on the Hammers’ old pitch.

The Sharks took part in a tournament in east London where they performed well in four matches and were presented with medals by former West Ham player Tony Cottee.

The Sharks are looking for new players, who will be in Year 4 at school in September, next season as they move to the seven-a-side format of the game.
