(SIR)BOBBY MOORE: Born in Barking in 1941,
Moore’s debut for the Hammers came on the 8 September 1958, making his debut in a 3-2 win over Manchester United at the Boleyn Ground as a 17-year-old.
It was the start of a career that is fondly remembered, not just by the Claret and Blue army, but footballing fans everywhere. R.I.P.
