Bobby shirts go up for auction

The Bobby Moore Memorial shirts worn by West Ham United in the Barclays Premier League meeting with Tottenham Hotspur on 25 February have been put up for auction for the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK.

The 15 shirts, each of which has been embroidered with the words 'Bobby Moore OBE. Twenty years gone, never forgotten' and personally signed by their wearer, will be on sale via the charity's official ebay page until 7pm on Saturday 27 April.

Jerseys worn by Andy Carroll, Kevin Nolan, Winston Reid, James Collins, Mohamed Diame, Mark Noble, Gary O'Neil, Matt Jarvis, Ricardo Vaz Te, Guy Demel, Matt Taylor, Carlton Cole, Marouane Chamakh, Jordan Spence and Raphael Spiegel are all available.

The remaining shirts, including those worn by Jussi Jaaskelainen, Joey O'Brien, Modibo Maiga, Wellington Paulista, Emanuel Pogatetz, Jack Collison and goalscorer Joe Cole, will appear for auction soon.

The shirts were worn on an emotional evening at the Boleyn Ground, where players and fans alike paid tribute to West Ham and England legend Bobby Moore OBE 20 years on from his death.

Moore, who won the FA Cup and European Cup Winners' Cup with the Hammers before lifting the FIFA World Cup for his country in 1966, was honoured with a minute's silence and a dramatic mosaic tribute from fans in the stand that bears his name.

The Bobby Moore Fund was founded by his widow Stephanie Moore MBE in 1993 and has since raised nearly £20m for research and raising awareness into bowel cancer - the disease that took her husband's life at the age of 51.

This season, West Ham have pledged to raise £50,000 for the charity and the club is rapidly closing in on its target. Joint-Chairman David Sullivan and principal partners SBOBET have both made large donations, while manager Sam Allardyce and captain Kevin Nolan have both donated the proceeds from their respective newspaper columns.

Supporters have also played a big part, raising more than £5,000 through sales of a special commemorative programme published for the visit of Tottenham on 25 February and generous individual donations.
