12 Days of Christmas: Sir Trevor Brooking spreads Christmas cheer for Any Old Irons
Sir Trevor Brooking recently spent an enjoyable afternoon in the company of a group of very special West Ham United fans who witnessed at first-hand his finest moments in Claret and Blue.
The Hammers legend headed to the East Ham Working Men’s Club, close to the former Boleyn Ground in Upton Park, for a question and answer session with Any Old Irons, a community programme for men and women over the age of 65, organised in conjunction with the West Ham United Foundation and Friends of the Elderly.
Sir Trevor took questions from the audience and shared memories and anecdotes from his illustrious playing career with the Hammers, which saw him progress through the famous Academy before going on to make 643 appearances between 1967 and 1984, a period that brought two FA Cup triumphs, a Second Division title medal, five Hammer of the Year awards and 47 England caps.
He then spent more than an hour chatting with those present, signing autographs and posing for photographs. Watch the full video above.
