West Ham have lost in the final of the Masters tournament for the third successive year - this time going down to Tottenham on penalties.
The Hammers lost 4-3 in the shootout after drawing 2-2 in normal time - the Hammers conceding a lasp-gasp equaliser which took the game to penalties.
West Ham's masters side included the likes of George Parris, Kevin Keen, Tony Cottee and John Moncur.
They started poorly, managing only a draw against Arsenal before suffering a heavy defeat against eventual winners Tottenham.
However a narrow win against QPR in the final group game was enough to ensure a third successive final appearance.
West Ham 1 Arsenal 1; West Ham 1 Tottenham 4; West Ham 3 QPR 2
West Ham 2 Tottenham 2 (Tottenham win 4-3 on penalties)
