Role: Official Cameraman!
Wherever the Hammers go Stevey Bacon is always there. The large but popular cameraman is the official supplier of photographs for the matchday programme and the Hammers News magazine. Well liked throughout he is known to concentrate more on the Hammerettes then the players themselves!
The big Canadian has provided a more then able back up role to Shaka after his 700k move from Ipswich in 1995. Whenever he fills in for Hislop, Forrest always provides reliable cover and this valuable side has been seen in his international commitments where he won the most valuable player award in the CONCACAF tournament. Only recognisable weakness is his kicking although he makes this up through tremendous reflexes and agility. Craig has recently signed an extension on his contract to keep him at the club till 2003.
Shaka was signed by former manager Harry Redknapp on a free bosman ruling in the summer of 1998. The man who was born in Hakcney but is currently the Trinidadian number one proved a huge hit in his first season combining an ability to command his box, with amazing reflexes and shot stopping to match. Incidentally he won the Hammer of the year in this first season. Hislop broke his leg last season though in an acidental collision against Bradford (a game which we won 5-4!) and hasn't reached the quality and brilliance of his first season. Shaka always seems laid back and only last season was linked with moves to Chelsea and his former club, Newcastle showing how highly he is rated.
