On this day - 7 July

Anniversary

Name: Jan Lastuvka
Born: Havirov, Czechoslovakia, 7 July 1982
Clubs: FC Karvina, Banik Ostrava, Shakhtar Donetsk, Fulham (loan), VfL Bochum (loan), West Ham United (loan), Dnipro
International: Czech Republic - three caps, no goals

One-time Hammers loan goalkeeper Jan Lastuvka is today celebrating his 33rd birthday.

The Czech stopper spent the 2008/09 campaign on loan at the Boleyn Ground from Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk.

He did not make a Premier League appearance for the Hammers, but did feature in a League Cup third round defeat at Fulham. That would be his only appearance in claret and blue, and he returned to Shakhtar at the end of the season, before moving to fellow Ukrainian club Dnipro, where he is still plying his trade.

Born in the Czech Republic, he played for Karvina and Banik Ostrava in his homeland in the early part of his career and earned his first international caps in 2011.

Lastuvka also played in England for Fulham, during another loan from Shakhtar, during which he played eight league games.
