Peru v. England - Estadio Nacional de Lima

West Ham United captain Bobby Moore was awarded his first England international cap in the friendly against South America side Peru. The match had been arranged as part of the Three Lions' build-up to the 1962 World Cup Finals in Chile.


A Ron Flowers penalty after 15 minutes and a hat-trick by Jimmy Greaves set the seal on a 4-0 victory at Estadio Nacional de Lima just 11-days before the start of the World Cup Finals.


England manager Walter Winterbottom was so impressed with Moore’s performance that the Hammers’ skipper went on to be an ever-present throughout that tournament. Group 4 games: (Hungary lost 1-2), (Argentina won 3-1), Bulgaria (drew 0-0).


England reached the quarter-final stage before losing 3-1 to eventual winners Brazil at the Estadio Sausalito, Vina del Mar.


By the time Moore reached his 12th cap in May 1963 new manager Alf Ramsey handing him the armband for the Bratislava friendly with Czechoslovakia to became the youngest ever captain.


87 days younger than the previous holder, Cuthbert Ottaway who captained England in the very first international match 91 years previously.

London Challenge Cup Final

Despite the biting wind there was an attendance of 8,000 and they were rewarded with a game of fast exchanges in which each side in turn had their full share of the play. West Ham United went into the final as holders having beaten Millwall in the 1957 competition. A lone goal by Hammers' Doug Wragg was not enough as the Gunners ran out winners 3-1 on the night and picked up the trophy for the eighth time.

The FA Youth Cup this was very close to being decorated with claret and blue ribbons. In the second leg against Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park, the Hammers lost by the only goal scored, somewhat desperately and with a strong suspicion of off-side, in the 10th minute of extra-time. It gave the Rovers a 2-1 aggregate victory.


The 10 match FA Youth Cup run saw West Ham rattle in 27 goals with only 7 conceded. Mick Beesley and Andy Smillie were on fire contributing 21 of the total 27 goals. Beesley topped the scoring table with twelve to Smillie’s nine. Beesley scored in every round bar the final. While Smillie only drew a blank in the semi-final. Something to saviour from the 3rd round 6-0 win over Eastbourne United were the rarities of Bobby Moore scoring from the penalty spot and an Eddie Bovington goal

BBC Sports Personality Award

The winners list is framed by the first, in 1954, Chris Chataway representing Britain in a special match-up with Russia, behind Vladimir Kuts in the 5,000m for the majority of the race, but powered ahead in the last 10 strides to win in a world-record time, to at the time of writing Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton in 2020.


One of F1's all-time great drivers, Hamilton claimed his seventh F1 title in 2020, drawing him level on the all-time championship list with Michael Schumacher. He surpassed the German's race wins record when he won at the Portuguese Grand Prix, his 92nd career success.


Sandwiched between them is a host of sporting superstars, including West Ham United’s greatest, Bobby Moore.


In 1966 England captained by Moore won football’s premier tournament the FIFA World Cup. That unforgettable triumph, topped by Moore’s selection as “Player of the World“ helped propel him to the title of BBC Sportsview Personality of the Year 1966.


Appropriately, Moore was presented with the iconic trophy by another big star from the 1966 World Cup, Eusebio of Portugal the tournament’s top goal scorer. West Ham dominated the individual awards as team mate Geoff Hurst finished third in the voting behind Barry Briggs the speedway rider.

8 September 1958


Noel Cantwell, the senior member of the team, was consulted by manager, Ted Fenton about who to pick at left-half to face the Red Devils at Upton Park. The choice was between the vastly experienced, but not fully fit, Malcolm Allison or the up and coming Bobby Moore. At the age of 17 Moore had arrived on the big stage playing his part in the Hammers 3-2 win.
