West Ham FA Cup Winner Dies

Graham Paddon, part of the 1975 West Ham squad that won the FA Cup, has died aged 57.

Graham Paddon joined West Ham in December 1973 when the club were in serious relegation trouble. When he left the club three years later he had an FA Cup winner's medal and had played in a European Cup-Winners' Cup final.

In other news - West Ham have withdrawn George McCartney from the Northern Ireland squad saying he needs another 48 hours of training before he is ready to play again.

Nigel Reo-Coker appeared in court today to defend his friend Anton Ferdinand. Reo-Coker was at Faces nightclub on the night of Ferdinand's attack but was not directly involved in the incident.

Graham Paddon was a fantastically gifted footballer who, like all people with ability, made it all look easy - he was a class player. The power he had in his left foot had to be seen to be believed but he was also such a good passer of the ball. It was a pleasure to have seen him play at Upton Park and wear the claret and blue. I was truly saddened and shocked to hear of his untimely death. All thouights are with his family. Alan Marshall, West Ham fan, Milnathort, Scotland.
