A behind-the-scenes look at the annual staff and players’ Christmas dinner at Chadwell Heath

West Ham United’s annual staff and players’ Christmas dinner was a colourful affair at Chadwell Heath.

Training ground chefs Keith Parson and Adam Viggars laid on a festive feast for manager Sam Allardyce and his coaching and medical staff and first-team players.

A welcome guest at the top table was Joint-Chairman David Gold, who enjoyed his turkey with all the trimmings alongside Big Sam.

Club chaplain Rev Alan Bolding led the prayers before the fun began, with Christmas party hats, streamers and crackers all adding to the atmosphere.

The official website was on hand to capture the festive scene as the Hammers took a short time out from their preparations for the Boxing Day trip to Birmingham City. As you can see from our exclusive images, team spirit could not be higher.
