WEST HAM legends Tony Cottee and Tony Gale are appearing at Orsett Hall.

The pair will be chatting about their careers and sharing stories and jokes with London comedian Micky Pugh, who is hosting the evening.

Cottee - one of the most prolific strikers of his generation - bagged 115 goals in 279 appearances for the Hammers through the 1980s and during a second spell at the club in the mid-90s. Cottee, 48, also enjoyed fruitful spells at Everton, Leicester City and between 1996 and 1997 he spent a season with Malaysian side Selangor, before retiring at Millwall in 2001.

He will be joined by his former West Ham team mate Gale, 54, who played in defence for the Hammers, clocking up 300 appearances and finding the net five times.

Gale also made more than 270 appearances for Fulham and won the Premier League with Blackburn Rovers in 1995. He retired at Maidenhead United in 1998.

Both Cottee and Gale are now regularly seen on Sky Sports, either commenating or analysing.
