West Ham's origins
The first professional team to represent Essex, West Ham actually emerged from the bankruptcy of amateur team Old Castle Swifts in 1895. Forming 3 years prior, the Castle Swifts' founding sponsor Donald Currie, lost interest in the team and refused to continue paying for the team. With the popularity of football growing, interest for the team's purchase continued and it fell to philanthropist Arnold Hills, who stepped up to assume the new role as team owner. Changing the team name to Thames Ironworks FC, it is Hills who is predominantly remembered for founding the team. Impressively, while Thames Ironworks FC, began their campaign on a strictly amateur basis, the team proved to be so successful that by 1898, the team went professional, joining the Southern League Second Division. Winning the Southern League in their first attempt they were promoted, however, the following year (despite being recognised as a fully fledged competitive team) they finished second from bottom and only through a play-off did the team manage to remain in the First Division. At the turn of the century, in a bid to infuse a new era for the team, Thames Ironworks officially changed their name to West Ham United Football Club. Suffice to say, it is because of this that West Ham retains their nickname of "The Irons" and "The Hammers", referencing their workman roots!
