Signing success

Hundreds of supporters took the opportunity to rub shoulders with West Ham United stars Carlton Cole and James Tomkins this week.

The pair appeared at the Boleyn Ground Stadium Store, where they happily signed shirts, photographs, flags and books for fans. Cole and Tomkins also posed for pictures with supporters.

Earlier in the week, Alessandro Diamanti and Luis Jimenez appeared at the club's Lakeside Store, with the signing again being well supported by Hammers fans.

The events were held during the half-term school holiday, enabling fans of all ages to meet their heroes.
