Classic match

West Bromwich Albion 0-0 West Ham United
Division One
12 August 1972

West Ham United's sole first team assignment on this date came way back in 1972 when they travelled to the Midlands for their first game of the season.

West Bromwich Albion provided the opposition as the Hammers looked to improve on their 14th place finish of the previous season.

They got off to an unbeaten start at the Hawthorns, with a defence including Tommy Taylor and Bobby Moore protecting their goal expertly.

Bobby Ferguson (pictured) kept a clean sheet to ensure Ron Greenwood's men travelled back south with a point to their name.

A 1-0 victory over Coventry City in the following match propelled West Ham to the head of the table, and they would go on to enjoy a successful campaign, finishing the season in sixth place.
