Hamilton fullback Hendrie emotional ahead of West Ham move

Hamilton Academical defender Stephen Hendrie expects his final game to be emotional ahead of his move to West Ham United.

The West Ham-bound defender still expects the tears to be flowing when he severs an eight-year tie with Accies.

"I won't lie, there might be a tear or two as I am quite an emotional person," said the highly-rated 20-year-old to the Daily Mail.

"It's going to be a really emotional day for me. I've been with Accies since I was 12.

"But I can't wait to get down to West Ham and see what I can do,' added the youngster who signed a pre-contract in January after the two clubs agreed a £1million compensation package.

"The quicker I start, the better. I will work hard down there and see what happens."
