West Ham United record-breaker Mark Noble has commented on his most treasured memory at the club to date.

Mark Noble broke West Ham United's Premier League appearance record at the weekend, when he played his 205th top-flight game for the club. 

The central midfielder has become a key figure for the Hammers over the years and his record-breaking feat was testament to his ability. 

A combative, but technically adept player, Noble has become a fans' favourite at the Boleyn Ground and his appearance record has confirmed his place in the club's history books.

The 27-year-old has spent his entire career at West Ham, making his debut back in 2004. It means he has seen the good and the bad at Upton Park, but one memory stands out above the rest.

Noble says that the side's dramatic win against Manchester United, at the end of the 2006/07 season, which kept them in the division is his favourite match of all those he has played so far. 

“That match at Old Trafford where Carlos Tevez scored the winner and we stayed up is really memorable,” he revealed to the London Evening Standard. “My first Premier League goal at Upton Park against Spurs was also special. We lost 4-3 but it was a very important match for me.”

Noble wil be hoping to create further memories in the future, after saying that he wants to commit the rest of his career to the club. 

The England youth international has rarely been involved in a more exciting time at West Ham since arriving, either, so he should have a good chance to do that this season. 

Sam Allardyce's men are currently in fifth position in the Premier League table and look well set to push towards Europe. 

Indeed, Noble believes that the side have the most strength in depth as they have in any point in his time there.

“In terms of depth of the squad, it is the strongest since I’ve been at the club,” he said. 

“Hopefully, we can keep most of the squad fit now and stay near the top of the league.”
