Matt and Coley meet Hammers fans

Matt Taylor and Carlton Cole brought plenty of festive cheer when they met supporters at the Stadium Superstore on Tuesday.

Both West Ham United players got straight into the Christmas spirit by wearing seasonal hats as they signed autographs and posed for photographs.

Supporters of all ages queued to get shirts, footballs and other merchandise signed, including gifts they are planning to hand out to family and friends on Christmas Day.

Midfielder Taylor said: "It was nice to meet our fans. Everyone said they were looking forward to Christmas and also wished both us and the rest of the team luck for our forthcoming matches, which was nice. We hope to carry on from last weekend and get some good results over Christmas."

Meeting the Hammers supporters was also enjoyed by popular striker Cole.

"It was really good,  as everyone was happy with what is happening on the pitch and we hope to do more," he said. "It is good to meet our fans and give them our time, sign autographs and everything, so it was really good."

Supporters still have time to purchase the perfect Christmas gift for Hammers fans, with a wide range of official merchandise available, including the 2012/13 Macron replica kit and trainingwear.
