JACK BURKETT (1962-1967) Born this day Edmonton, London

 

The full-back was a  product of the Academy, he was a member of the side that lost to Blackburn Rovers in the 1958 FA Youth Cup final. Burkett made his league debut for the Hammers against Fulham in April 1962. He was a key member of the 1964 FA Cup winning side and a year later he gained another medal when West Ham won the European Cup Winners' Cup. He went on to make 184 appearances for the Hammers between 1958 and 1968, leaving for Charlton Athletic after losing his place in the Hammers team to John Charles following an injury in the 1966-67 season. After eight league appearances for the Addicks, he had brief spells at Millwall and Southend United, and then moved over to Ireland to serve as player-manager at St Patrick's Athletic. Following a four year spell with Pat's, he returned to coach at Southend, then managed the Saudi Arabia U18 side and Norwegian club Orsta. He later took the roles of youth coach at Southend and Fulham.

The war-time season opened late, but we got away to a good start at Fratton Park, where we netted five of the nine goals in a great game against Portsmouth.

ROGER HUGO (1964) Born this day Woking, Surrey

 

A fine inside-forward whose opportunities were restricted by surplus of candidates for the inside-births during his time with the club. Scored in two of his first three First Division appearances in the 1963-64 season, all away from home v. Leicester City, Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion respectively, so he was unable to show the Upton Park crowd his undoubted skill at senior level. Transferred to Watford in the summer of 1965.

HUGO Roger

Top-of-the-table Queens Park Rangers defeated a rather depleted Hammers side by 5-2 in the Football League South at Loftus Road. Rangers led 3-1 at the interval, but though we got one back they were too strong in the end.

 

Among our players in representative matches at that time were Charlie Bicknell (for a Civil Defence team and a National Police XI), and Len Goulden (for the F.A. v R.A.F. at Stoke).

“Match of the Day” in the Football League South must surely have been our home fixture versus Millwall. The Lions were six down at half-time, but eventually “only” lost by 7-5!

Len Goulden got three of our goals. The Hammers’ half-back line was C.S.M. Inst. Ted Fenton, M/M Willie Corbett (Glasgow Celtic) and his brother Sgt. Norman Corbett
