    Story

    Not many people will know this man’s name “Amos Nasha” Snr. He moved to England from Nigeria leaving his family many years ago to attend university.
    Amos had two sons. Amos (junior) and Mark. Tragically a few years ago they lost their mother. It was a shock to all the men but they showed immense unity in dealing with this devastating news. Amos jnr 17 at the time bravely continued with his football ambitions at west ham. Mark who was about 14 at the time pushed on with his studies.
    Early last Year (2016) Amos Snr suffered a heart attack which resulted in him having to sell his shoe shop in east London while he recovered. In the summer Amos Jnr was released by West Ham and like many young lads got on the depressing treadmill of “trialling” to find a new club.
    A week before Christmas 2016 Amos Snr collapsed and suffered fatal heart failure. This tragic event has left the lads in a state of shock. Trying to work through this has been extremely tough on the lads. Sadly they live in rented accommodation and now face the real fear of becoming homeless in the months ahead given they have no current income. Amos Jnr is now the Guardian of Mark who is attempting to sit his A levels. Amos juniors football has had to take a back seat while he deals with much more important priorities in his life.
    I’m not a very religious person but I respect other people’s views. Thankfully the http://www.jesushouse.org.uk/ church have been supporting Amos and Mark through their faith to deal with their current situation.
    What I’m looking at through this article is publicity and donations to help keep these decent lads moving forward through a very difficult time in their lives. They need our support.
    If you are able to send a donation to help Amos and Mark it will be gratefully received and I will ensure they use it wisely.

No matter how large or small the donation it is comforting to them to know people care. It looks like the West Ham family and the football community are coming out in force to help! From the chairman, to the fans on the terraces.Pease keep sharing this page.
