Shaun Newton arrived at Upton Park via Molynuex back in March 2005 and has rarely failed to perform ably whenever called upon.
Okay, so his appearances since the Hammers were promoted back to the Premiership have more often than not come from the bench, but 20 appearances in the 05/06 season confirmed that he remained very much part of Alan Pardew's plans - until he was found guilty of taking cocaine after a routine drugs test following West Ham's 1-0 win over Middlesbrough in the FA Cup Semi-Final.
