On this day - 10 May

Classic match

Arsenal 0-1 West Ham United
FA Cup final
10 May 1980

It is 35 years to the day since Trevor Brooking stooped to head West Ham United to FA Cup glory at Wembley.

The Second Division Hammers produced a superb run to the final that included victories over West Bromwich Albion, Orient, Swansea City, Aston Villa and Everton to set up a final meeting with Arsenal.

Terry Neill's side were hot favourites to win, but opposite number John Lyall out-smarted him by lining West Ham up in a 4-5-1 with David Cross playing as a lone striker. The winning goal came in the 13th minute, when Alan Devonshire crossed, Cross's shot was blocked and Stuart Pearson's follow-up was glanced in by Brooking.

Billy Bonds later lifted the FA Cup for a second time, and the third occassion in Hammers history. The following day, the squad were met by tens of thousands of fans as they paraded the trophy through east London on an open-top bus.

Classic match

West Ham United 4-3 Leicester City
Premier League
10 May 1998

The Hammers closed the 1997/98 season with a mid-table battle against Martin O'Neill's Leicester City.

Neither team had much to play for, but that was not apparent in the way the game was approached, with plenty to entertain the 25,781 Boleyn Ground crowd.

West Ham were in a rich vein of goalscoring form, having drawn 3-3 at Crystal Palace in their previous match, and it did not take them long to get off the mark this time, with Frank Lampard's15th minute strike opening the scoring.

Samassi Abou made it two on 31 minutes to give West Ham a position of strength before the break.

Leicester pulled one back on 59 through former Hammer Tony Cottee, but it was soon 3-1 thanks to Trevor Sinclair.

The drama continued and the Foxes again closed the deficit thanks to Emile Heskey, before the hosts could relax again due to Abou's second of the game.

Cottee struck again with seven minutes to go, but West Ham had done enough to secure a thrilling victory which gave them an eighth-place finish.
