On This Day: Hammers pay winning tribute to late Bobby Moore

 

Taking a look back at a classic West Ham United moment on this day in history, in association with RoadX Tyres...

West Ham United paid a winning tribute to the late Bobby Moore at the Boleyn Ground on this day in 1993.

The Hammers ran out 3-1 winners against Wolverhampton Wanderers with goals from Trevor Morley, Julian Dicks and Matty Holmes on an emotional afternoon in east London.

Prior to kick-off, a moving ceremony was held, with Moore's former manager Ron Greenwood, teammates and friends lined up on the touchline as fellow 1966 World Cup winners Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters laid a floral No6 shirt tribute on the centre spot.

A minute’s silence was held before the match, with both sets of players lined up around the edge of the centre circle with heads bowed.
