Like so many West Ham supporters Brian Belton was born only five minutes walk from the club ("I heard 'em cheering in me cradle"). As a teenager Brian worked primarily to support his habit of following West Ham around England. In his twenties the Mayflower Centre shanghaied him to work with young people in the Canning Town area. Brian was now a youth worker and eventually was persuaded/ bullied/ bribed into taking a professional qualification with the YMCA College in London. He gained a degree at City University and then became a Senior Youth and Community worker in Islington, managing, for three years, not to get killed by Gooners, and gaining a Masters Degree at Essex. He has published over 50 books, mainly on football.
