Your Chance to Pay Tribute to John Lyall

Last updated : 16 April 2009 By Site Editor

Lyall was in charge of Town when they won promotion to the first season of the FA Premiership by winning the Barclays Second Division title in 1991/92 despite the side only having finished 14th the season before.

Lyall went on to Manage Town in the Premiership for two seasons and highlights of his reign included guiding Town to the lofty heights of fourth place in the Premiership in January 1993, before Mick McGiven took over as team manager and Lyall was moved upstairs.

John sadly passed away at the age of just 66 at his Suffolk home in 2006 and the passing of one of Town's most successful managers led to many tributes being paid to the Illford born man, who later had a plaque erected in his memory at West Ham's Upton Park.

Now you, the fans have a chance to pay your tributes to the achievements of the Division Two winning manager and have your messages of remberence passed on to the Lyall family.

West Ham fan Tony Hoskins will be spending a day with the Lyall Family and will pass on all messages emailed to him at from both Town and West Ham fans alike.
