Brabrook pays tribute to Moore

Twenty years ago this Sunday, West Ham United and England's greatest-ever defender passed away.

Bobby Moore OBE, the first Hammers captain to lift the FA Cup and the only man to skipper England to FIFA World Cup glory, was just 51 when he lost his battle with bowel cancer in February 1993.

In a week-long tribute to Moore, the official website, West Ham TV and the Official Programme for the Barclays Premier League visit of Tottenham Hotspur on Monday 25 February will feature a series of interviews and features paying homage to West Ham's No6.

Former West Ham and England winger Peter Brabrook shared victory in both the 1964 FA Cup and the 1965 Cup Winners' Cup finals with Moore, a player and a person he holds in the very highest regard.

"He's probably the greatest player this football club has ever had and probably the greatest they will ever have," Brabrook told West Ham TV.

"One of the nicest people you'll ever meet as well. A lovely fella, a lovely fella to be around, a lovely fella to be out with! He was a tremendous lad.

"Twenty years seems a long, long, while ago, it will be great to be at the ground on Monday to honour a great player."

This week, West Ham TV will bring you interviews with those who knew Moore best, including his daughter Roberta and his former West Ham, Fulham and England team-mates.

A special 100-page commemorative Official Programme is also being published for the visit of Spurs, complete with exclusive interviews with West Germany legend Franz Beckenbauer, broadcaster Jonathan Pearce and many, many more. To order your copy online now, click here.
