Hull City fullback Liam Rosenior admits Upton Park inspired him to take up football.

The 29-year-old defender has fond memories of West Ham's home patch after watching his dad Leroy play there when he was a boy.

He said: "I know they'll be moving on the Olympic Stadium soon, but for me Upton Park will always be the place where I first found a love for football.

"I used to go to Upon Park when I was a boy, so it will be a special night for me personally. I was going there when I was three and four-years-old.

"The West Ham manager John Lyall would have all the kids in the dressing room before games. Five minutes before kick-off we'd be having a kickaround with the first-team players.

"It holds a lot of memories for me from growing up.

"It's a great club, with great traditions and it'll be an honour for me to play there one more time. It'll be a joy."
