West Ham United staged a minute's applause before Saturday's match against Newcastle United in honour of Malcolm Allison.
The former defender died a week ago at the age of 83. He served the club to distinction between 1950/51 and 1957/58, playing 255 games in all competitions, before a hugely successful coaching career.
The foundations were set for his future achievements during his time at the Boleyn Ground. Allison was also a leading figure under manager Ted Fenton in the establishment of the Academy principles throughout the club.
