1965-66 Metropolitan League 'A'

Four new clubs joined the league for the 1965-66 campaign, Barnet Reserves, Brentwood Town, Hatfield Town and Sheppey United. The clubs who left the competition at the end of last season include Guildford City Reserves, Romford Reserves, Cambridge City Reserves, Luton Town 'A' and Bexley United. The only other notable change is that Dunstable Town have joined the Southern League and will be replaced with their Reserve side for this season's campaign.

21 August 1965

Although making allowances for the comparatively below-standard opposition, we could be pleased with this performance by a Hammers' XI which could by no means be considered of high experience. We missed some opportunities earlier on but settled down to be two up at half-time, and carried on the good work in the second half. Two tallies from Paul Clements, one from Barry Simmons and an " own goal" made the final score 4-1 to our side.

Against a strong Wimbledon contingent we built up a 3-1 interval lead, and retained this margin until the final whistle in a second half which was evenly-contested. Paul Clements, Bobby Howe and Tony Smith each scored once, and David James contributed a very good performance for the Hammers.
