It has been announced that Upton Park’s Centenary Stand is to be renamed to pay tribute to Sir Trevor Brooking.

The former Hammers midfielder, now the FA’s Director of Football Development, told that it was ‘obviously a terrific honour, which I am very grateful for because this is my club and will always be my club’.


He spent his entire playing career with West Ham, from 1965-84, as well as serving as caretaker manager and then a club director.

CEO Scott Duxbury added that it was a fitting gift to a man who had helped make the Irons what they were as a club, and that he would be guest of honour at the home friendly against Napoli on August 8.
