West Ham United >>

Reading first met West Ham, then known as Thames Ironworks, in the Southern League in 1899. In order to turn professional, Thames Ironworks, as a works team, had to disband in 1900 and reform as West Ham. The Hammers remained in the Southern League until they were elected to the Football League in 1915. Since then meetings have been rare: there were a number of games in the Southern Professional Floodlit Cup in the 1950s, however the first match in a major competition was not until 11th September 2001, when Reading put West Ham out of the League Cup on penalties on an emotional night at the Madejski Stadium. The first League meeting came two years later in a game overshadowed by a row between the clubs over manager Alan Pardew.
