Rare Bobby Moore video discovered

Filed: Friday, 27th January 2017
By: Staff Writer

Rare footage of former West Ham and England captain Bobby Moore has surfaced on YouTube for the first time.

The grainy video, shot in 1970 begins with footage of West Ham's 2-0 friendly win at Pompey (through goals from Trevor Brooking and Geoff Hurst) before segueing into an event at which Moore was present.

Happily chatting to guests, Bobby - dressed impeccably as usual in a suit and tie - can be seen signing autographs whilst chatting to fellow guests at Chichester City FC before leaving in a (chauffeur-driven) car.

The video - which also contains footage of ex-'Soccer Ball Tricks & Juggling' world champion, Allen David (who used to share Moore's agents, Sandra and Colin Deaton) originally surfaced on a Portsmouth fan website.

Moore and David worked together for several years, both as coaches and members of the Showbiz XI football team. David was also MC at Phil Parkes' testimonial against Ipswich in 1990, three years before Moore died.
