'Which London football club was formed by employees of the Thames Ironworks?'

Answer:

West Ham United Football Club.

  • The badge of today’s team still displays the old ironworks with two crossed riveting hammers.
  • The team origins are also evident in the nicknames used by fans, the ‘Hammers’ and the ‘Irons’.
  • West Ham still play in claret and blue, the house colours of the old Thames Ironworks.
