Julian Dicks said farewell to Upton Park in an emotional appearance at Upton Park this afternoon, despite the visitors best attempts to spoil the party.
The Hammers were beaten 2-1 on the day thanks to a last minute winner from Athletico Bilbao's Yeste. But the result was irrelevant to the thousands of fans who flocked to Upton Park in order to catch their last glimpse of the man known as the Terminator.
Dicks played almost half an hour of the second half before coming off to rapturous applause and a standing ovation after 75 minutes. Despite looking slightly heavier than during his regular playing days he had a good game, which was nearly capped with a goal in the second half following a fiercely struck free kick from the edge of the area.
