On This Day: Hammers hit Shots hit for six in FA Cup replay

An FA Cup replay on this day in 1991 brought plenty for the Boleyn Ground crowd to cheer, as the Hammers made up for a 0-0 draw against Fourth Division Aldershot by putting them to the sword at the second time of asking.

It was also the second time the tie had been played on the Hammers’ home turf, after the original match was switched from Aldershot’s Recreation Ground due to safety concerns, and this time the majority of the 21,484 in attendance went home happy.

West Ham did not have to wait long to open the scoring, George Parris finding Trevor Morley for the striker's 12th goal of the season inside ten minutes.

A weaving run and finish from Stuart Slater made it 2-0 on 28 minutes, before the winger turned provider for Parris seven minutes later. 

West Ham added a fourth when Morley rounded the goalkeeper to slot home and there was still time for the visitors to pull one back through Adrian Randall before the break.

That was as good as it got for the visitors, as additional goals from Morley and Jimmy Quinn in the final ten minutes completed the scoring. West Ham would go onto reach the semi-finals that year, bowing out to Nottingham Forest at Villa Park.
