On This Day: Hammers secure record high Premier League finish


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

West Ham United secured their record-high Premier League finish on this day in 1999, when they defeated Middlesbrough 4-0 at the Boleyn Ground.

Frank Lampard and Marc Keller struck before the break, before Trevor Sinclair's double secured the points for the Hammers.

West Ham would finish the campaign with 57 points, holding off the challenge of Aston Villa and Liverpool to end fifth.
