Noble - It was a night to savour

Hammers skipper Mark Noble felt the emotion of Tuesday's Farewell Boleyn match
Mark Noble could not have wished for a better farewell to the Boleyn Ground than that which his West Ham United side gave their home of 112 years on Tuesday.

The Hammers came from behind with two goals in the final 15 minutes to earn their first league win against Manchester United since 2007 and ensure their final game in E13 would go down in folklore.

Noble, as he has been all season, was a real driving force for the hosts as they dragged the game back to claim maximum points and he was full of emotion at the final whistle.

“We couldn’t have asked for a better send off – it was what dreams are made of.,” he said.

“It was very special – it’s a night that will go down in history and for me to lead that team and be the captain that took us out at the stadium, from where I grew up and from where I walked home after my debut, was very special.

“I’ve never heard noise like that here ever before. That was phenomenal and walking out to that, and beating Manchester United – who I’ve always thought have been great – was also very special.

“We’ve got team spirit, and we are a team. It’s a night that the fans can savour, go home and be proud of the team they support.”
