Awards dinner in aid of Academy

West Ham United's second annual end of season Gala Dinner will be held on Tuesday 4 May 2010.

The star-studded event will take place in the beautiful surroundings of the Grand Ballroom at the London Hilton on Park Lane.

This season's event will be held in aid of West Ham United's famed Academy, which has produced dozens of future Hammers heroes, most notably 1966 FIFA World Cup winners Bobby Moore MBE and Sir Geoff Hurst.

All proceeds from the evening will go to the Academy, helping Academy Director Tony Carr and his staff to continue the development of today's talent into tomorrow's heroes.

Guests of honour will be the 1980 FA Cup-winning squad, who will celebrate the 30th anniversary of their unforgettable 1-0 victory over Arsenal at Wembley.

The Gala Dinner will also see the unveiling of the 2009/10 Hammer of the Year - sponsored by Vantis Business Recovery Services - the Young Hammer of the Year, and the winners of the Best Goal and Best Team Performance of the season awards.
