On This Day: Hammers seal 1980 FA Cup final spot


Taking a look back at a classic West Ham United moment on this day in history, in association with Basset & Gold....

Frank Lampard Snr might only have scored 22 goals in his 18-year West Ham career, but he can lay claim to perhaps the most iconic goal celebration in Hammers history - on this day 39 years ago. 

With just two minutes remaining in extra-time of the 1980 FA Cup semi-final replay against Everton at Elland Road and the scores locked at 1-1, Lampard swooped with a diving header to send the Hammers to Wembley. The goal itself was memorable enough, but Lampard’s famous jig around the corner flag topped it off.

Enjoy the moment - and Alan Devonshire's solo goal which opened the scoring - again in our video above.
