Tony Carr has been presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award as recognition of his services to West Ham United.
The Academy Director has led the club's youth programme since 1973 and was honoured at a special London Football Legends bash held in the City last night.
The event, a fund-raising evening for the Willow Foundation, was held in London and compered by TV's Alan Davies.
More than 20 London legends, including former Hammers Sir Geoff Hurst and Sir Trevor Brooking, attended the awards and took part in a Q&A session hosted by former Arsenal goalkeeper Bob Wilson.
The remaining award winners on the night were as follows:
Outstanding Contribution to a London Club - Pat Rice (Arsenal)
London Player of the Year 2013/14: Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal)
Bert Trautman Award: Pat Jennings (Tottenham)
Retired Club Legend: Ledley King (Tottenham)
Lifetime Achievement Award: Roy Hodgson (England)
The most bizarre nomination of the evening went to Harry Redknapp, who was one of six nominees in the 'Contribution to a London club' category for his services to West Ham United.
Other Hammers nominees to go home empty handed were Jussi Jaaskelainen (2013/14 Player of the Year) and Mervyn Day (Bert Trautman Award).
