How was the DSB created?

In April 2017, the Club wrote by email and sent a letter to all supporters who have registered as accessibility ticket holders inviting them to apply to join the Disabled Supporters' Board.

We received more than 50 applications to join the DSB, and as representatives on the general Official Supporters' Board for ambulant and wheelchair using supporters, Cathy Bayford and Trevor Bright independently selected a total of 16 members using a range of criteria in order to ensure the most diverse and varied representation of our accessibility supporters.

This included, but was not limited to, ambulant disabled supporters who are visually-impaired, hearing-impaired or have learning difficulties, wheelchair users, those that live locally and further afield, a representative from the Bondholder community, Corporate and General Admission Season Ticket Holders, Claret members, juniors and senior citizens, and supporters who sit in a range of areas across the stadium.

Cathy and Trevor are also members of the Official Supporters' Board where they represent and convey the views and experiences of wheelchair users and ambulant disabled supporters.

To contact Cathy and Trevor, email dsb@westhamunited.co.uk.
