Kate Longhurst waves farewell to West Ham.

West Ham played Tottenham at home in front of a sell out crowd for the first time this season, to round up their 2022/23 campaign.

As the season came to a close, the Hammers came 8th on 21 points after 22 games.

Midway through the season the Hammers were 5th and were really pushing the top 4, but since the Christmas break they haven’t been able to add many points to their tally.

The Irons struggled throughout the season with the goals they were conceding, whilst also having to play midfielders in defence due to injuries.

Especially when Lucy Parker and Hawa Cissoko were out injured.

Captain and Hammer of the year, Dagny Brynjarsdóttir, scored 7 goals throughout the campaign, which meant the midfielder nearly scored double the amount she did the season before.

The Icelandic also assisted 3 times.

The Hammers will be hoping she can duplicate this next season.

It wasn’t all downhill since Christmas for West Ham, as they managed to get to the semi final of the Continental Tyres when unfortunately the result didn’t go their way against Chelsea.

Back in March, West Ham Women gained 3 new directors, these include, West Ham’s Co Chairman- Karen Brady, Tara Warren and Nicola Keye.

This shows that behind the scenes aspects of the club are developing, with this it’s the first time the women’s side are starting to increase their growth on and off the pitch.

But with Paul Konchesky also leaving West Ham, to take up a new challenge, the Hammers will have a new look to them from top to bottom to hope they can challenge the top 4.

This could be a big summer for the Hammers with new signings and financial prospects. Who do you think they will sign going into the 2023/24 season?
