The annual West Ham United team photo-shoot had a twist this year with an extra special guest.
Young supporter Max Davies from Epping was able to take his place alongside his Hammers heroes after his father Lee successfully bid for the unique prize at last May's Gala Dinner in aid of the Academy.
The shoot took place on the Boleyn Ground pitch and Max was able to meet all the players and manager beforehand. He then stuck around to watch the team train in preparation for Saturday's showdown with Tottenham Hotspur.
Max, whose favourite players are Robert Green and Scott Parker, said: "It was very exciting," he said. "All the players were funny and it was very good to see the players up close. I play for a local team and it was great to see the training and how they do things."
