|Clyde Best backs the statue campaign|
Councillor Veronica Oakeshott is running a campaign to keep the statue at Upton Park, while West Ham seek to have it moved to the London Stadium at Stratford. A forthcoming Newham Council meeting will ultimately decide its fate.
Local MPs Stephen Timms and Mike Gapes support the campaign and former-West Ham star Clyde Best (one of the first black players in Britain) lent his backing to keeping the statue where it is during his recent signing at the Newham Bookshop. Moore, Hurst and Peters achieved their feats at the Boleyn Ground and that's surely where it should stay. If the club really want a similar statue in place at Stratford then they could commission a copy.
