A petition aimed at persuading Newham Council to allow a mural of Bobby Moore to be commissioned is seeking support from West Ham United fans.

According to Kevin Bellamy, who is responsible for the idea, the Council have stated that his plans for the work - which would be situated in Stratford - requires the support of a large number of residents and/or supporters.

And, as a result, a petition has been launched on to garner support for the mural, that would complement earlier installations close to the club's former Green Street home.

"After assisting in the production of wall murals around Newham with top line mural artists - including the Sir Trevor Brooking and Billy Bonds mural in Barking Road and the Long Live the Boleyn mural - I now want to finish off with a Sir Bobby Moore mural in E15," says Kevin.

"Ideally it would be situated in the one-way system by the shopping mall at Stratford station, but I've been told that in order to proceed with this I need as many signatures as possible.

"The artist I would choose is Nasher, who was responsible for the LLTB and Billy and Trevor murals. He has also recently completed the Keith Flint commemorative mural at Braintree Town FC.

"Long Live The Boleyn"

"The chosen mural design will be decided following permission from the Bobby Moore family and a selection of West Ham supporters and hopefully some formers players too."
