West Ham legend Alvin Martin says the pride he felt at his son David’s dream debut for the club eclipsed anything he experienced during his illustrious career.

Alvin was at Stamford Bridge on Saturday to see David help West Ham secure a 1-0 win against Chelsea on a fairytale first Premier League start at the age of 33.



A former England international who played 596 times for West Ham, Alvin won the FA Cup with the Hammers in 1980 and is one of the best centre-backs in their history.



“The West Ham fans who were at Stamford Bridge were brilliant to my son and it meant a lot to me,” Alvin told Talksport.

"To go from that, to the other side of the spectrum, and to enjoy something so wonderful, it is incredible.” David, a boyhood West Ham fan, shared a tearful embrace with his dad at Stamford Bridge and has become a cult hero among supporters.

But he says watching his son topped the highs he had as a player.

The thing that struck me was how much it meant to him.”
