Mark Steele, the club's secretary, said: "Having Alvin as our VIP guest was another very special occasion in the history of the King's Lynn Irons Club. I had the privilege of sitting with Alvin and it was brilliant to hear the stories of his life with West Ham as well as his thoughts on the current West Ham side."

Martin's son David played a starring role in the Hammers' 1-0 win over Chelsea last weekend, making his Premier League debut aged 33.
