Devo shuffled his feet

Hammers legend Alan Devonshire was in the mood for dancing yesterday after his Maidenhead Utd side clinched a vital win to round off their National League campaign in style.

The former West Ham and England winger, who is three years into a second spell with The Magpies was delighted to see his team secure a 5-2 win against play-off hopefuls Bromley, thanks to goals from Smith, Owusu and Marks and a Barrett brace.

And whilst it was back in the seventies and eighties that he made his name as a result of his clever footwork and trickery, 62-year-old Devonshire demonstrated that he can still shuffle his feet when required - as the video below demonstrates!

Devonshire, who led Maidenhead to 12th in the National League this season narrowly missed out on a crack at the play-offs, just 12 months after he led them to promotion from the National League South.

The Middlesex-born midfielder made 358 appearances for West Ham United in a career that spanned 14 years, from 1976 and 1990.
