Name: Mark Noble
At the club since: 2004
It has been a brilliant season in the Premier League for West Ham, who are still pushing for a place in Europe next season ahead of their move to the Olympic Stadium, and no Hammers will be more excited about that step forward than captain Mark Noble.
Born in Canning Town, east London, the midfielder joined the Irons at the age of 13, and became their youngest ever reserve team player when he appeared at the age of 15.
Noble made his league debut in 2004 and has made more than 350 appearances since, and was rewarded with a testimonial match last month, that was attended by a number of his former team-mates.
Incredibly, despite his good form, and much to the bemusement of West Ham supporters, the 28-year-old has never been capped by his country.
