Jimmy Neighbour

West Ham United are mourning the death of Jimmy Neighbour after he passed away at the age of 58.

Neighbour had been recovering in hospital on Saturday after a hip operation. The popular winger scored six goals in 97 appearances for the club between September 1979 and November 1982 - including the 1981 League Cup final - before later working for the club's youth academy, after a successful spell as manager of non-league Enfield Town.

The Chingford-born Neighbour had begun his career at Tottenham Hotspur, playing for their first team between 1970 and 1976 and later returned to the club as a youth-team coach. He had joined West Ham after a three-year spell at Norwich City and a summer with US side Seattle Sounders. He ended his playing days with a brief spell on loan at Bournemouth before heading into coaching.

He leaves his wife Sheila, son Ian, a West Ham season ticket holder, and daughter Faye.
