“Two goals at West Ham FC one in each half what a night, running out of people to tell... only with football aid...Many thanks to West Ham United and the fantastic way we were treated by all at the club. Many thanks to all the ex West Ham Players and celebs that made the night even more special and Many many thanks to all at Football Aid for the fantastic job that you all do and it was an honour to be one of the first people to wear the Football Aid Strip.
