West Ham United threw open the gates to their pre-season training camp in Cork, allowing hundreds of supporters to meet their Hammers heroes.

Fans flocked from all over the island of Ireland to watch Kevin Nolan and his team-mates being put through their paces before collecting autographs and photographs galore.


Among the supporters to make the trip to Fota Island Resort were the Little Island Hammers, who made the short journey from just outside the city of Cork. Chairman Ivan Murphy said he and his fellow Irish-based Hammers were delighted to welcome the Club to the Emerald Isle.

To watch West Ham's Open Training Session and hear why Murphy and so many other Corkonians are Hammers supporters, watch our exclusive video coverage of the event on West Ham TV.
