Lakeside Hammers have been handed a further boost ahead of the exciting new Championship season.

Ruggles & Jeffery have renewed their sponsorship of the club’s hugely successful community project and this will be their eighth season.

Hammers promoter Jon Cook said: “Our thanks go to Ian Jeffery and everyone at the company for their continued support and thumbs-up for our move into the Championship, which has been so warmly greeted by everyone associated with the club.”

Hammers community manager Mark Sexton added: “Ruggles & Jeffery provides crucial financial support for the Hammers’ Community Programme and, as a consequence, we are able to offer free entrance to all of our youngest fans and to ensure nights out for supporters with children aged between seven and 16 are as affordable as possible via the ‘Kids for a Quid’ scheme and the new £10 junior season ticket.

“Ruggles & Jeffery’s investment also helps the club to meet the Community Programme’s education and inclusion objectives.”

Meanwhile, Cook has also revealed plans to hold talks with Kelvin Tatum after the festive spell as extra travel and clashes with his TV work mean he cannot continue as Hammers manager.

Cook added: “Kelvin’s got a lot to offer the club, but the manager duties are not conductive to his busy schedule and from a rider point of view it’s better to deal with the same person at each meeting.

“From that perspective we’ve got a new man, experienced in the role, who will be announced next week.”
