Stoke's Etherington thanks West Ham fans for warm response
"That was nice," admitted Etherington to whufc.com. "It was good to get the reception I did from the West Ham fans. I loved my time at West Ham, it was just simply time to move on and try somewhere else, but there will always be a link for me with the club.
"As I said I keep in touch with some of the lads and will always look back on my time there with great memories, without a doubt."
