Nobes tops Premier League table

West Ham’s loyal servant smashes the longest serving Premier League player by five years! His 17 years and 2 months at West Ham is an amazing achievement with Seanys Colemen way behind in second place at 12 years and 2 months, Kevin Long is third, six years behind Nobes on 11 years and 2 months.

Born in Canning Town and a boyhood West Ham supporter Noble played for Barking Colts and moved to Arsenal’s academy at age 11. Noble switched to the Hammer Academy and signed as a youth player in 2000. He became the youngest player ever to appear in the West Ham reserve team, aged 15.

He made his debut in the senior team at the age of just 17 in the League Cup in August 2004 in a 2–0 win against Southend United. He made his league debut in the Championship in January 2005, in a 4–2 defeat away at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

  1. Noble keeps our identity strong with the East End connection, as his playing days now draw down, he has been an example throughout his career to others, and served the club so loyally in and off the field!

    Would so like to see Mark given a role within Our Club, he has so much still to offer especially working with younger players, thanks Mark!

  2. Well done Noble but it is a shame he didn’t stop 2 years ago . He is an embarrassment on the pitch and is rapidly being remembered as the man that didn’t know when to stop rather than as the loyal workhorse that he was . He will not be remembered as a great for his ability and is not in the same class as some of the legends our proud club has fielded . Time to stand aside if he loves the club as much as he says .
