On This Day: West Ham pay a winning tribute to Bobby Moore


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

West Ham United paid a winning tribute to the late Bobby Moore on an emotion-filled day at the Boleyn Ground on 6 March 1993.

The Hammers returned home two weeks after the death of the great defender and captain for the visit of Wolverhampton Wanderers.

A ceremony was held before kick-off, with Moore's old teammates lined up on the touchline as fellow 1966 FIFA World Cup winners Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters laid a floral No6 shirt tribute on the centre spot.

When the action began, Steve Bull opened the scoring on 57 minutes, but Trevor Morley leveled within a minute and Julian Dicks' penalty put the Irons in front just after the hour mark. Substitute Matty Holmes completed the scoring three minutes from time to secure a 3-1 win for Billy Bonds' side.
