Sky Sports presenter and Hammers fan Bianca Westwood is hosting an evening with two Hammers legends in London later this month.

Later this month, on Tuesday, 24 October Westwood - who also co-presented Series 4 and 5 of the KUMB Podcast - will be compering a special event featuring West Ham legends Tony Cottee and Tony Gale in Holborn, London.

The two former Hammers will talk about their time as players and recollect their exploits both on and off the pitch, whilst the second half of the evening is scheduled to conclude with a Q&A session giving you the opportunity to ask them your questions.

Tickets are available for just 35 each and are available from pizzaexpresslive.com now. Fans are advised to book early in order to avoid disappointment.

Tony Cottee began his career at West Ham aged 17, where he made his professional debut in the First Division against Tottenham on New Year's Day 1983.

He was a prolific goalscorer in the claret and blue of West Ham and was voted PFA Young Player of the Year in 1986, when West Ham finished third and recorded their highest league finish to date.

It was during this successful spell that Cottee crossed paths with namesake Tony Gale, who played a key role in the side forming a notable defensive partnership with Alvin Martin.

During a 19-year career, Tony Cottee made over 600 appearances and represented England seven times.

Tony Gale made 636 appearances as a defender during a 22-year career from 1977 until 1998, winning the Premier League with Blackburn Rovers in 1995. He also played for Fulham, West Ham United and Crystal Palace.

After progressing through the youth ranks of Fulham, Gale narrowly missed out on promotion to the First Division during the 1982-83 season. The following season he joined The Hammers for 200,000 in order to play in the First Division and went on to make over 300 appearances.
