Brian Dear excited by West Ham developments

West Ham United legend Brian Dear is excited about developments at the club this year.

The Academy product and 1965 European Cup Winners' Cup winner is a regular visitor to the Boleyn Ground.

"We're still in the Barclays Premier League and it's the only place to be," the 69-year-old told "When we go to the Olympic Stadium, it's imperative we go there as a Premier League side. Sam Allardyce has done a good job this year. We play to our strengths and tenth place is great.

"Sam's a nice man and he contributes to the Bobby Moore Fund. He's very involved with Stephanie Moore with the charity. He's made his mark on West Ham and I think he'll be OK.

"The Club has raised nearly £60,000 this year and that's through the players and other initiatives. Sam donates the proceeds from his Evening Standard column, which a lot of people don't know about, but that's how strong they are in support of Bobby's Fund. All power to them and long may it continue."
