On This Day: Mark Noble's maiden West Ham goal sees off Seagulls


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

West Ham United captain Mark Noble was just 19 when then-manager Alan Curbishley handed him a rare start in the Irons' FA Cup third-round tie with Brighton & Hove Albion at the Boleyn Ground on 6 January 2007.

The teenager lined up alongside the likes of Carlos Tevez, Yossi Benayoun, Christian Dailly and debutant Luis Boa Morte as the Hammers looked to put their Premier League struggles out of their minds.

And Noble helped the home side do just that by opening the scoring with his first senior goal four minutes after half-time. Cole added a second on 58 minutes before Hayden Mullins completed the scoring in the final minute of normal time to send the Irons through to the fourth round.

Enjoy all the action from a memorable afternoon in Noble's long West Ham career again right here!
