The Hammers will travel to National League side Dagenham & Redbridge for a friendly match on Wednesday, March, 21 kick-off 7.30pm.

Dagenham & Redbridge are in an extremely difficult financial position and will look to raise much-needed funds from this fixture against a strong Hammers side.

“We got a letter asking if we could help out,” Moyes said.

“It’s a football community, we all compete against each other but because it’s local I think it’s important you help all the local teams.

“It’s so important to the club and I think with us being the biggest club in this area, I think it’s only right we help the ones below.

“Hopefully they get a full house.

“We will take a team down there, during the international break, and give Dagenham all the proceeds to help them keep the club and make sure the players get paid.”

While, Daggers midfielder Matt Robinson, admitted it’s such a nice gesture from the Premier League outfit to help them out.

“Since I’ve been at Dagenham, the east London connection, a lot of our fans are probably West Ham fans too.

“It’s a nice spectacle to have and a nice gesture to put forward to try and help us out because of the situation we’re in.”

There are 1,200 tickets available to Hammers fans for the friendly at the Chigwell Construction Stadium, which plays host to the Hammers’ Premier League two matches.

Seats are priced at £15 Adults, £10 O65s and £5 U16s, while terrace places are available for £10 Adults, £8 O65s and £3 U16s.

Tickets can be purchased at eticketing.co.uk/whufc.
