Remembering Ron

Legendary West Ham United manager Ron Greenwood CBE will be honoured at Tuesday's npower Championship visit of Bristol City.

The late, great Greenwood, who would be celebrating his 90th birthday on 11 November, oversaw the greatest period in the club's history during his 13 years in charge at the Boleyn Ground.

After a successful playing career with Chelsea and Fulham and coaching England's Under-23 side, Greenwood moved to east London in 1961.

As well as overseeing the development of the Academy of Football and helping the likes of Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters becoming FIFA World Cup winners in 1966, Greenwood led West Ham to their maiden FA Cup success in 1964 and European Cup Winners' Cup glory the following year.

In 1977, after serving three years as the club's general manager mentoring John Lyall, his achievements with the Hammers were rewarded when Greenwood was appointed as England manager - a post he held until 1982.

To mark the great manager's unrivalled career, Tuesday's match will see 1960s legends Peter Brabrook, Ronnie Boyce, Eddie Bovington, Ken Brown, John Bond and Brian Dear join host Phil Parkes in the Legends Restaurants, where they will share their memories from the club's glory days.

A pitchside tribute will also take place before kick-off, giving all supporters the chance to show their appreciation for Greenwood and the players who played such a large role in his success.

Corporate hospitality packages to be part of this unique event are still available, priced at just £49 per person, plus VAT.

Elsewhere on a packed evening of entertainment on and off the pitch, 1966 FIFA World Cup winner Peters will be the host in The 66 Club and 66 Champagne Bar.

For fans who would like to spend the evening with former Hammers midfielder Martin Allen, the current Notts County manager will be joining host Allen McKnight in the Greenwood & Lyall Lounge on the same evening. A number of the 1960s greats will also be joining McKnight in the same lounge after the final whistle.
