On This Day: Winston Reid joins West Ham United


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

It was on this day nine years ago that the ever-popular Winston Reid arrived in east London.

The Hammers snapped up the central defender following his impressive showing for New Zealand at the 2010 FIFA World Cup, where the then-22-year-old produced a series of eye-catching performances and scored a memorable last-gasp equaliser against Slovakia

Now, Reid is 31, a former Hammer of the Year and West Ham's second longest-serving player behind captain Mark Noble.

To mark the anniversary of his signing, here you can enjoy his ten goals in Claret and Blue again, including the unforgettable winner against Manchester United in the Final Game at the Boleyn Ground in May 2016.
