West Ham fans explain calling off planned protest march

West Ham fans have called off a planned protest march.

A march against West Ham co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold has been called off after being sufficiently reassured by vice-chairman Karren Brady.

A statement on the group's Facebook page insisted the intended march has got the ball rolling with making positive changes to the club and is no longer needed.

"RWHFAG was set up in November to galvanise the board into recognising that the REAL West Ham had died in the move from Upton Park to the Olympic Stadium, that the promises made to keep the spirit alive had not been met and that with no evidence of meeting those promises despite the efforts of various supporter groups over time something had to be done differently," the statement said.

"The threat of the march has indeed brought Karren Brady to several meetings and David Sullivan to one and the agreement to work with the RWHFAG on finally delivering in a meaningful way on the groups aims."
