Zamora backs police appeal

West Ham United have added support to a renewed police appeal for information about the death of local schoolboy Adam Regis a year ago on Monday just yards from the Boleyn Ground.

Players from both clubs wore black armbands in Saturday's fixture against Blackburn Rovers while the matchday programme carried an article hoping to jog people's memories. Adam was stabbed on 17 March 2007 in Kingsland Road, at the junction with Boundary Road E13. The suspects used a car similar to a mark II VW Scirocco. Anyone with information is asked to call police on 0208 345 3775 or email [email protected]. Alternatively, you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Bobby Zamora has led the calls for information. He said: "Being a local lad myself and growing up in the area, I found it particularly devastating when I heard the news about Adam's death. He was a normal, well-behaved, 15-year old with his whole life ahead of him and there is no explanation as to why someone would choose to take it away from him. Along with the police, I appeal strongly to anyone out there who has any information that could help with the enquiries into his murder, no matter how small it seems it may well be vital to the police investigation and help justice prevail."
