West Ham United has given five NHS heroes at Queen’s and King George hospitals a first look at their new kit. 

Lindsey Wood, Tony Kaura, Kate Baker, Biruk Tessema and John Mealey all took part in the launch event yesterday.

They are all ardent Hammers fans and have collectively worked for the NHS for 68 years. 

Tony, head of clinical engineering, said: “It’s a lovely new kit and good to see it’s got a nice collar as well. 

“The feel of it is very good and it’s got the right contrast of Claret and Blue.” 

The kit is inspired by the iconic shirt worn by Paolo Di Canio and co at the turn of the millennium.

John noticed the design straight away: “As soon as I saw it, the first thing I thought was it’s back to the kit when Di Canio scored against Wimbledon. I really like the collar and the sleeve.

“We are really grateful for the continued support the Club have shown us throughout the pandemic and even recently, in the thank you week for our incredible staff for what they’ve done for the last year-and-a-bit, we had a thank you video from the men’s and women’s teams and it’s really appreciated by everyone here at the Trust.”

Kate started working at Queen’s Hospital after receiving life-saving treatment there for a previously undetected brain tumour. 

She was thrilled they all got a chance to see the kit first: “They’re a fantastic bunch here, the doctors and nurses, and all the therapists.

“It’s been horrific on certain days, but we work well and get through it and fingers crossed we’re going to see light at the end of the tunnel.”
