King's Lynn Irons welcome West Ham legend whose son David Martin played key role in Chelsea win

A West Ham United icon was the special guest at a Lynn supporter's group Christmas meal before his son proceeded to play a starring role in a Premier League win over Chelsea the following day.

Alvin Martin, who played nearly 600 times for the Hammers in a successful 19-year professional career at Upton Park, attended the King's Lynn Irons Club's annual event at Titchwell Manor on Friday evening.

Having also represented England 17 times, Mr Martin proved to be a popular hit with members of the group who posed for pictures with him as well as hearing his stories from his time at West Ham from 1974 to 1996.
