Gala Dinner in pictures

West Ham United's End of Season Gala Dinner was a roaring success and rightly went ahead on Monday despite the disappointment of relegation from the Barclays Premier League.

With nearly 800 guests invited and all proceeds going to the Academy, it was an ideal chance for players and fans to mingle and reflect on the season just gone. Ben Shephard followed in the footsteps of Phill Jupitus and James Corden as host, and proved an ideal choice to compere as the awards were handed out.

In what was an extremely positive evening, Joint-Chairmen David Sullivan and David Gold were in attendance, along with Vice-Chairman Karren Brady, while the Boys of '86 were celebrated to mark the 25th anniversary of that memorable campaign.

This weekend's official matchday programme will have all the news and views from the Grosvenor House hotel, as well as more exclusive photos from the awards and the night's events.
