Born in Sussex, Byrne was precociously successful at Crystal Palace. The diminutive striker, affectionately known as 'Budgie', was brought to Upton Park by Ron Greenwood in March 1962 for a then British record fee of £67,000.

He made his Hammers debut in the same month at Sheffield Wednesday, and went on to become one of the Club's greatest and most popular players. A very modern type of attacker, standing only 5ft 8in but weighing 11.5 stone, he was adept at dropping off his marker, finding space, and either launching a colleague with an inspired pass, or using his own pace, skill and powerful right foot to set off for goal himself. 'Budgie' played for West Ham during one of the most successful periods in the Club's history, helped lift the Hammers first FA Cup at Wembley in 1964 and the European Cup Winners Cup a year later.

His exceptional talents were never in doubt but, although he won 11 caps and scored eight goals for England, he never fully established himself at international level. Things might have been different if only he had figured, as he surely should have done, in the 1962 World Cup in Chile. It seemed likely that he would. But in a game against West Bromwich Albion, he had been involved in a fracas in the tunnel, at the end of the 90 minutes, with Don Howe, the West Bromwich and former England right-back. Word was that the powers that be at the Football Association - where a selection committee still, nominally at least, pick the team - were displeased by this, and consequently excluded him.
