West Ham United supporters turned out in numbers on Sunday morning to mark the 20th anniversary of Bobby Moore's death with a wreath-laying service at the Boleyn Ground.

Hammers Joint-Chairman David Gold was joined by Moore's West Ham and England team-mate Martin Peters, Bobby's daughter Roberta and granddaughters Poppy and Ava, Mayor of Newham Sir Robin Wales and club chaplain Rev Alan Bolding, for a service at The Champions statue on Barking Road.

Hammers fans were invited to pay their respects in a moment of silence while memories of the legendary Hammers captain were recounted.

Mr Gold told whufc.com: "It was a lovely service and it is an honour for us all to remember Bobby today, on what is the 20th anniversary of his sad passing.

"He was our England World Cup winning captain, but also more personally for us all here at West Ham, a legend at our club and always will be.

"It was great to see so many West Ham fans turn out in what was bitterly cold weather. But they wanted to pay their respects to a man who we hold very dear at this club.

"Bobby will continue to be remembered at our club. There were many fans here today who are too young to remember him or didn't see him play. I was one of those fans who did see him play and have, like many others, my own special memories of Bobby.

"Greats are almost immortal and he is one of those greats. I am quite sure that Bobby will be continued to be remembered for another century and more.

"We take our tributes into our game with Tottenham Hotspur tomorrow. We will have Bobby's grandchildren leading the team out, a minute's applause and much more. All of this is simply our way of paying our respects to such an iconic footballer and man. One of the nicest men, who had personality, charm and modesty and is legend in the game.

"Tomorrow's game will have it all for Bobby, as well as all the tributes, a bustling London derby with a full crowd behind the team. I think it is just fitting for him."
