On This Day: Preston Play-Off glory for Hammers


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 14 years ago that the Hammers secured their return to the Premier League after two years in the Championship.

After seeing off Ipswich for the second year in a row at the Play-Off semi-final stage, Alan Pardew's men atoned for the previous season's Millennium Stadium defeat to Crystal Palace.

This time around, Bobby Zamora's goal was enough to see off the Lilywhites and send West Ham back to the top flight.

Their mission is to challenge the market and create investment opportunities that are easy to understand, transparent and continuously control risk, while maintaining market-leading returns that meet investment goals. Click here to find out more.
