A new generation of West Ham fans are set to wake up to Hammers-themed presents on Christmas morning after the club donated gift bags to our Christmas Toy Appeal.

Players Albian Ajeti, Fabian Balbuena and Lukasz Fabianski took time out of training to present the bags, which contain gifts such as scarves, soft toys and a Hammers annual.

Also supporting the Toy Appeal was the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), with the Stratford-based company collecting 21 crates full of children's toys.

Kind-hearted employees also donated 12 crates of boots and coats, as well as vouchers and money which will be used to buy even more presents.
