The owners of a pub in Chelmsford called The Wheatsheaf have decided to rename their venue to The Jarrod Bow Inn for the duration of this summer’s Euro 2024 tournament.

Whilst not coming from East London or Essex, Bowen has become loved and adored by West Ham fans from both areas. This is thanks to his consistently exceptional performances in claret and blue, additionally, the England international is celebrated by the fan base for regularly being one of the club’s standout performers since joining the club in 2020.

Owners of the pub, Tanith and Paul described the Hammers forward as being “loved and cherished” by West Ham supporters across Essex. The decision to give the pub a temporary re-brand was made after a vote took place with 166 other names being suggested to pub landlady Tanith who took over the Wheatsheaf with Paul Kelly in March of this year.

Tanith, who is a West Ham supporter herself said: “We were trying to think of something to get everybody involved. The pub historically is a sports bar itself and so the idea was put out there to temporarily change the name of the pub during the Euros.”

Bowen came off the bench for England in the Three Lions first group game, a 1-0 win over Serbia. The West Ham forward almost made an instant impact, whipping in a cross to Harry Kane who was unlucky not to make it 2-0 to England with his headed effort. He would also come off the bench in England’s 1-1 draw with Denmark.

As was reported in The Sun, landlady Tanith said Bowen was “more than welcome any time” to the pub in Chelmsford, going on to add: “He is loved and he is cherished, not only as a West Ham player but also part of the England squad.”
