West Ham to mark Moore anniversary

West Ham are to mark the 20th anniversary of the death of former Hammers captain and England legend Bobby Moore this weekend.

Moore, who led the club to their 1964 FA Cup and 1965 European Cup Winners' Cup successes, passed away at the age of 51 on February 24, 1993 following a battle with bowel cancer.

To honour his memory, a wreath-laying ceremony will take place at the Heroes statue outside Upton Park on Sunday, with fans being welcomed to join club officials.

A series of events are also planned for Monday evening as West Ham take on Tottenham at home in the Premier League. Many of Moore's former team-mates have been invited to the game as special guests - including fellow World Cup winners Martin Peters and Geoff Hurst - while prior to kick-off, a minute's applause will be held.

Supporters sitting in the Bobby Moore Stand will also be invited to take part in displaying a special mosaic depicting Moore's famous Hammers No.6 shirt, which was retired by the club in August 2008 to mark the 50th anniversary of the defender's West Ham debut.

Monday's fixture will see a commemorative programme being sold, as well as a bucket collection outside the stadium, with proceeds going to the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK. The West Ham squad will also warm-up in Bobby Moore Fund t-shirts before kick-off, with the tops then being auctioned off for charity.
