New Stadium progress report

  • Noble joins an elite group of players at the new Stadium including Moore, Peters & Hurst

  • The West Ham skipper saw his giant shirt installed

  • The giant shirts are positioned around the world-class arena

West Ham United captain Mark Noble has joined an elite group of players that have had their giant model shirts installed at the new Stadium.

Noble was thrilled to see his name chosen alongside the Hammers' three World Cup winners – Sir Geoff Hurst, Bobby Moore and Martin Peters.

The talented midfielder made an emotional visit to the new Stadium to see the shirt put up and is honoured to have been chosen alongside some of the biggest names in the Club's history.

Noble said: "For a Canning Town boy like me to see my name up on a giant shirt at our new home is a bit surreal, to be honest!

"I've supported this Club all my life and to be honoured in this way alongside so many legends at our amazing new Stadium is special."

The imposing shirts, each four-metres wide, have been installed around the world-class arena and West Ham United will celebrate the heroes of both past and present throughout the Stadium.

Hammers legends Billy Bonds, Sir Trevor Brooking and newly-crowned Hammer of the Year Dimitri Payet have also been honoured.
