Former Bolton striker Henrik Pedersen serves West Ham fans from his bar as they ‘forgive him for dismounting’ them.

WEST HAM fans were served beers by an old foe ahead of their Europa Conference League game in Denmark on Thursday night.

The Hammers saw off Danish team Silkeborg 3-2 to maintain their perfect start to European competition this season.

But before the game, one West Ham fan shared a clip of a flock of Irons supporters being served by ex-Bolton star Henrik Pedersen.

Pedersen, 47, who also spent a decade with Silkeborg across two spells, could be seen pouring pints in his own pub.

And the caption for the video brought back some memories for West Ham fans as they know the former Bolton man well.

It read: “Ex @SilkeborgIF and Bolton player Henrik Pedersen keeps us @westham fans hydrated in his bar!

“We forgave him for banishing us all those years ago!🤣.”

The relegation referred to came back in the 2002–03 Premier League season.

Pedersen helped Bolton to safety with just two points as they finished the season in 17th place.

But West Ham were the unlucky side, falling back into the Championship as a result.

The East London team finished two points behind Bolton and was relegated.

It took the Hammers two seasons to return to the top flight before making it through the playoffs in 2005.

Meanwhile, Bolton stayed in the Prem for nine more campaigns before finally dropping to the Championship in 2012.

Since then they have made it to the second division but are now back in the first division.
