On Wednesday I was given the opportunity to participate in a heading competition at West Ham’s new training ground situated at Rush Green. That in itself would have been a dream come true so imagine my surprise when I was told that my heading partner would be an actual player from the first team squad.
It did not take long before I found out that my ‘keepy-uppy’ partner would be West Ham left back Arthur Masuaku! Wow! As a West Ham fan it all felt a bit surreal but all of a sudden there I was face to face with a number of players that I cheer on from the stands every week.
In this video you’ll see how I got on in the challenge as well me interviewing Obiang and Antonio. There is also some footage of the training ground itself plus my own thoughts on what was a truly brilliant day.
