Baker: Very Excited

8 August 2013

Cheltenham Town chairman Paul Baker discussing the West Ham cup draw.

Today's Capital One Cup draw will have Cheltenham fans excited, but none more so than chairman Paul Baker.

Paul is a lifelong West Ham United fan and he will witness a dream come true when he watches the Robins take on the Hammers in their own backyard, Upton Park.

The match will be played in the week commencing 26th August and Paul admitted he couldn't wait.

"It's the dream draw for me!" he smiled.

"I used to go and watch them in my twenties and I used to be a part of the West Ham supporters club here in Cheltenham. I've supported them since I was a boy back in the days of Bobby Moore and Geoff Hurst. I couldn't believe it and the build up was amazing.

"It's a magic draw and financially it's a brilliant draw for the club and a great reward for Mark and the players."
