This weekend saw a day that has been in most West Ham’s Calendar for quite some time. Mark Noble’s Testimonial and the game and day really did have everything.
It was a day of mixed emotions that’s for certain, especially as for some it was some fans last time at Upton Park. Noble himself done well to keep control of his emotions after his guard of honour at the start of the game then the fun began.
There were so many highlights but a few will definitely stand out for a long time. The first of them being Taylor Tombides goal and dedication to his brother Dylan who passed away. When he scored the majority of people couldn’t help but tear up. It was an extremely moving moment and so fitting for Taylor to score it at one of the last games at Upton Park. A moment never to be forgotten.
Another highlight was Adrian’s goal. All fans are used to him trying trick with the ball at his feet but this time he went one step further and completed an incredible solo goal which saw him run the whole length of the pitch to score a goal which put the current hammers 2-1 up. Everyone knows the talent Dean Ashton has but he really proved it during the game with a special strike, an overhead kick that any player would be proud to score. Sakho provided another after his he took out his phone and took a selfie with his team mates.
The game ended in 6-5 so there were an unbelievable amount of highlights including Noble scoring and of course Di Canio getting on the score sheet. It was a fitting day for a true captain, leader and legend for West Ham United.
