On This Day: American hero Jonathan Spector 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....

West Ham United snapped up United States international Jonathan Spector from Charlton Athletic on this day 13 years ago, on 15 June 2006.

A versatile player, Spector grew up in Chicago before moving across the Atlantic Ocean to join Manchester United as a teenager.

And Spector's finest moment in a Claret and Blue shirt came against the Red Devils on a snowy night in November 2010, when he bagged two goals in a shock 4-0 League Cup win at the Boleyn Ground.
