When I was a member of the VP Club during the nineties there was a ball that was placed in a glass case and screwed to the wall. If I remember correctly the match ball was from the Trevor Roberts Testimonial match against West Ham in 1972.
Several years and several moves later the VP area being re-decorated and the ball disappeared and thought to have been lost forever.
Today we were looking in a space under the Main Stand and saw a ball tucked away at the back which was covered.
On further investigation I believe we may have found the ball. See photos below. One is the signature of Trevor Roberts. There are also signatures of former West Ham players from the period on it.
The signatures are faded, however, some are quite clear.
Can anyone confirm this is the ball which was in the VP Club room and also that it is Trevor Roberts testimonial ball?
