Video: Forget Alan Shearer, we've got Mark Noble, midfield star pulls off amazing trick shot in training

Mark Noble

West Ham United midfielder Mark Noble has gone one better than England legend Alan Shearer by pulling off an audacious trick shot in training.

Newcastle United and England legend Shearer proved he's still got it over the summer when he showed off his famous skill and celebration after performing a trick shot while on holiday with his family.

Barefoot, Shearer steered a shot over a swimming pool and into a chair before wheeling away with his arm raised in a familiar pose.

The video was shared by his son Will on Twitter and quickly went viral online back in July.

Whatever Shearer can do...

But now ahead of West Ham's Premier League match against Shearer's old club Newcastle, captain Noble has gone one better.

While a number of players were away on international duty, Noble was hard at work back at the Hammers' Chadwell Heath training ground... and having plenty of fun too.

The midfield general watched teammate and defender James Tomkins attempt to hit a first time volley into a sit-on lawnmower cab some 50 yards away.

Tomkins got nowhere near but Noble nailed it first time and the whole thing was captured by West Ham's media team who shared it on the club's official YouTube channel.

Mark Noble, Mr West Ham

Having been in West Ham's first team since the age of 17 back in 2004, Noble has completed more than 10 years of service at his boyhood club.

He achieved a lifelong dream recently when Slaven Bilic chose him to replace departed captain Kevin Nolan.

It means fans will have a homegrown Hammer leading the side for their last ever season at their beloved Boleyn Ground home of 112 years before a big move to the 54,000 seater Olympic Stadium in Stratford next summer.

Noble is due a testimonial at the Hammers and admitted on TalkSport last week in the wake of his side's historic 3-0 win over Liverpool at Anfield – in which he scored and was wrongly sent off – that he would love that to be the first game at the club's new ground.
