So if you haven’t already heard, Mark Noble is to have a testimonial – and the players he’s called up are slowly revealing their participation.
Over the last 24 hours we saw former Hammers Rio Ferdinand, Trevor Sinclair, Carlton Cole and Ravel Morrison confirm their call up by Nobes.
But three more have now taken to Twitter to reveal their delight at being picked. And one of them is a HUGE pick by Nobes.
First off it was goalkeeper Jimmy Walker who confirmed he’d got the call today, but we wonder who the other keeper will be…

Then Gary O’Neil got in on the act and told his Twitter following that he’s honoured to have been given the chance to play in the testimonial and play at the Boleyn Ground for one last time…

But then the big man Dean Ashton popped up and made every single West Ham fan in the world happy. Dean Ashton will be playing in the testimonial and will be donning the famous claret and blue for one final time at the Boleyn Ground…

We all know Ashton’s career was cruelly cut short by injury and it’s a shame he could never become the world class striker we all knew he was capable of being, so it’ll be extra special to see him one last time.
So who’s next, then?
