Tragic Hammer Dylan Tombides would have celebrated his 24th birthday today.

The Australian forward, who had been at West Ham since the age of 15 passed away four years ago next month following a long and brave battle against testicular cancer.

Tributes to the popular Tombides were led today by some of his team mates, as you may see below.

And plenty of supporters chose to mark the occasion by publishing their own tributes to Tombides, whose sole first team appearance for West Ham came under Sam Allardyce in a 4-1 Capital One Cup defeat against Wigan in 2012.

Dylan's memory is being kep alive by the good folk behind the DT38 Foundation, named after Dylan's initials and his former squad number at West Ham. You may find out more information about their good work here.

The Foundation have thanked everyone for their messages of goodwill on this poignant day for all concerned. "A warm and heartfelt thank you for all of your lovely messages of support today," read a message published on the group's twitter feed today.
