On This Day: Teenager Tony Cottee scores on his West Ham United debut!


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

West Ham United legend Tony Cottee made a sensational start to his Claret and Blue career in the Hammers' 3-0 First Division win over Tottenham Hotspur on New Year's Day 1983.

Then just 17, Cottee reacted with the predatory instinct that would serve him so well during his career, racing in to head home after Dave Swindlehurst's initial effort had come back off the crossbar.

Geoff Pike and Ray Stewart, from the penalty spot, were also on target to ensure the majority of the 33,383 supporters at the Boleyn Ground went home happy!

Watch Cottee send Upton Park wild once again right here!
