A giant mural near the West Ham’s former stadium – the Boleyn Ground – is nearing completion.
The artwork pays tribute to two club legends, Billy Bonds and Sir Trevor Brooking, and is set to be completed by the end of today.
Bonds is the club’s record appearance maker, having played once shy of 800 times for the Hammers in a 20-year-long career in East London, while Brooking is a two time FA Cup winner with the club and took charge of the Hammers as caretaker manager for a brief spell in 2003.
Painted on Priory Road just metres from former home Upton Park, the colourful design aims to preserve West Ham’s legacy in the area following the club’s move the London Stadium in the summer of 2015.
Hammers fans have been invited down to view the mural when it is unveiled later this afternoon by artists ‘Gnasher Murals’, both of whom are life long West Ham fans.
