West Ham United FC was founded in 1895 as Thames Ironworks and Shipbuilding Co. Ltd. In 1900 the name was changed to the current one and in 1919 the Club was selected to play in the football league Second Division, being promoted to the First Division in 1923.
In the sixties, the english press named the Club as “The Academy of Football” due to the amount of young talents wich came from its youth academy, and it won its first title in 1964, the English Cup, while one year later, it conquered its first continental trophy: the UEFA Cup Winners- Cup.
Although West Ham never has won the Premier League Championship, several great british players have emerged from its youth academy, such as Frank Lampard, Rio Ferdinand, Joe Cole, Michael Carrick and Jermain Defoe. Steve Harris, leader and bass player from the british heavy metal band Iron Maiden, also swelled its ranks.
