Your chance to meet McAvennie

Club legend Frank McAvennie will be visiting the Lakeside store to sign copies of a new book.

The former striker, who scored 57 goals in 186 games for the club, will be in store at the Essex shopping centre on Friday 31 October between 1.30pm and 4.30pm  to sign copies of a new book entitled 'West Ham United - In My Day Vol.Two'. It follows on from the hugely popular first volume launched last year.

The new book is packed with 20 exclusive interviews with former West Ham United players from decades spanning from the late-1950s to the late-90s, as they recall their highs and lows of life with West Ham United through a series of compelling interviews.

As well as providing a fascinating insight into what playing for the east London club meant to players who wore the claret and blue, In My Day also presents more than 160 evocative black and white photographs from days gone by, many of them published for the first time.

Among those featured in this edition are cult hero Julian Dicks, 1980 FA Cup winner Geoff Pike, 1975 FA Cup winners Pat Holland and Mervyn Day, Irish legend Liam Brady and, of course, golden boy McAvennie, whose goals shot United to within touching distance of the championship in 1986.
