Hammers Heritage: European 1965 Cup Winners' Cup heroes


The 1960s was a truly golden period for the Hammers.

After 1964 brought the Club's first FA Cup triumph with Wembley victory over Preston North End, the Hammers were back underneath the Twin Towers 12 months later when they saw off TSV 1860 Munich to land European silverware.

Brian Dear was a starter on that glorious May 1965 night and he will never forget helping West Ham land the trophy.

He said: "It has been mooted that night at Wembley was the finest performance some people have seen from a West Ham side.

"Everything just went really well and it was a fantastic evening."
