Moore saves face 66A

Bobby scored in the 5-1 victory, but international Under-23 caps were not awarded for the fixture. Five months later he scored again, this time it counted in a 2-0 victory over Wales Under-23s at Goodison Park.

 

Moore was awarded the first of his 108 full England international caps in the friendly against South America side Peru, a match in the Three Lions' build-up to the 1962 World Cup Finals in Chile.

 

By the time Moore reached his 12th cap in May 1963, new manager Alf Ramsey handed him the armband for the Bratislava friendly with Czechoslovakia to became the youngest ever senior England captain.

 

87 days younger than the previous holder, Cuthbert Ottaway, who captained England in the very first international match 91 years previously.

 

Bobby hit the net on two occasions in his 108 full internationals. Both came in friendly internationals against Poland and Norway in 1966, the year England became World Champions

 

Taking in games for the under 18s, the reserves and senior teams, theyflysohigh’s records total 66 goals, an iconic number scored by the Hammers' and England captain in his West Ham United career.  

 

That’s 61 claret and blue nets and five for England / FA representative teams. The rest of this feature introduces and tables all of these goals scored in competitive and friendly affairs.  

Bobby Moore's 66 Goals ...

MOORE Bobby filter

West Ham United  

Football League & League Cup

The Barking-born defender made his senior Hammers' debut at the age of 17 on September 8, 1958 against Manchester United in a 3-2 win at the Boleyn Ground before progressing to captain the side for most of his 16 years as a first team player.

 

In his 647 competitive senior club appearances for the east London club he averaged a goal every 24 games.  His 27 strikes were split between 24 in First Division matches and three in the Football League Cup.

66B

Cup final goal - one of his three League Cup nets was a strike in 1966’s League Cup final. Bobby Moore is one of just 14 West Ham players to have scored in a cup final. On March 9, 1966 he became the 6th Hammer, after Sam Small, John Sissons, Geoff Hurst, Ron Boyce and Alan Sealey, to have netted in a cup final when he scored from close to 40 yards out in the first leg of 1966’s League Cup final against West Bromwich Albion.

20 of his goals were delivered at Upton Park and 7 on oppostion's territory

 

18 goals in friendly games from 1961 to the club's 1969 summer tour of the USA.

 

In his 36 FA Cup & 14 European Cup Winners’ Cup appearances he failed to find the net

As an aside Moore also netted a couple of goals in 5-a-Side Football Championships. The first was in the 1967 Evening Standard sponsored 5-a-Side Football Championships. His goal in the 2-1 semi-final win over Charlton enabled the Hammers to progress to the final and win the London championships for the first time.

 

Three years later in the Daily Express sponsored National 5s Bobby scored one of West Ham’s three goals in the 1st round penalty shoot-out against Wolverhampton Wanderers. Goalless at full time meant penalties, and the Hammers won 3-2 as Billy Bonds & Clyde Best scored the other two.

Bobby Moore - 1st England cap blue

The first of Bobby Moore’s record 18 England Youth international appearances was the 3-2 win over the Netherlands in Amsterdam on October 2, 1957. Further representative honours followed with selection for a FA XI against the Army in a trial match at Hillsborough on October 19, 1960, and for the FA’s Far East Tour in the summer of 1961 where he scored in Hong Kong.

 

Moore made his Under-23 debut in unusual circumstances. England were scheduled to face the East German Under-23 side on September 21, 1960 at Maine Road, Manchester.

 

Five-days before the fixture was due to take place the 'Iron Curtain' side announced that they could not procure the necessary travel documents and were subsequently unable to travel. At the last moment Vejle Boldklub, a small professional football club from Denmark, stepped in as replacement opponents.

West Ham United

Reserve & Youth Team

Bobby Moore joined West Ham's ground staff in 1956 and pulled on the famous claret and blue shirt for the first time in a South East Counties League fixture on October 6, 1956. Playing in the No.5 shirt his West Ham career started on the right note with a 5-1 victory against Queens Park Rangers at Northolt.

 

On January 5, 1957, just 13 games into his West Ham career he scored twice against Reading in an FA Youth Cup 4th Round tie in the 4-2 victory at Elm Park.

 

Two seasons later in the same competition, Bobby scored his only goal from the penalty spot in the 6-0 thrashing of Eastbourne United in December 1958.

 

His total of 16 youth and reserve goals stretched from the brace against the Biscuitmen through to his last in the Football Combination against Northampton Town in April 1963.

MOORE Bobby Youth MOORE Bobby England Club Badge

During his illustrious career, Bobby Moore was renowned for his leadership, reading of the game and defensive skills. But we shouldn’t overlook his goal scoring ability. Though not a prolific goalscorer, he did net a fair few.  

 

From his time as an under 18 year old with West Ham’s youth side through to his senior career he proved his goal scoring ability by netting with both feet and his head, and even one from the penalty spot. As far as we know no comprehensive article has been published recording his goals for West Ham United and England. This feature aims to put the record straight.

5-a-Side Championship Goals

San Antonio the North American Soccer League side had the privilege of benefiting from Bobby Moore’s last goal. In the summer of 1976, while still under contract with Fulham, Bobby guested for San Antonio in 24 matches and recorded a single strike.
