THESE young footballers from Needingworth recently enjoyed a guided tour of the facilities at West Ham United's Boleyn Ground.

Needingworth Colts U11 also enjoyed a training session on the Hammers' pitch with an FA-qualified coach.

The trip was organised by one of the team members' parents, Russell Payne as a reward for the team's hard work across the season.

Manager Gary Tharme said: "It was a fantastic day and West Ham were extremely accommodating.

"We even had the chance to look round the changing rooms and the museum, where the World Cup winning medals belonging to Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters are kept.

"It was a real thrill for my son Liam, because he is a West Ham fan, but all the lads enjoyed the trip.
