He posed for pictures with members, signed West Ham programmes and recounted countless stories of his time playing for the East London club during a Q&A session, which included the club's 1975 FA Cup run that eventually saw the Irons beat Fulham in the final thanks to two goals from Taylor.
He also scored two goals in the quarter final against Arsenal at Highbury and bagged another brace in the semi final against Ipswich Town - something that hasn't been repeated since.
The 62-year-old, who also played for Norwich City, Cambridge United, and the Vancouver Whitecaps, also played in West Ham's 1975-76 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup campaign, scoring three goals as the Hammers made the final but lost 4-2 to Anderlecht in the Heysel Stadium.
David Blackmore, media, publicity & communications officer at KLIC, said: “It was wonderful to have Alan as our guest of honour some 40 years after that historic FA Cup victory and it proved to be another very special occasion in the history of the King’s Lynn Irons Club.
"Speaking to members afterwards, what we liked most about his visit was that he made time for everyone and made sure he visited every table to meet members and answered all their questions. It was a really nice touch and certainly impressed me."
The attendance of Taylor followed special guest appearances of fellow West Ham legends Brian Dear and Ronnie Boyce at previous social evenings organised by the club.
Dear, who played in the European Cup Winners Cup winning side in 1965, was the VIP guest at the end of season meal in June and Boyce, who scored the winning goal for West Ham in their 1964 FA Cup Final win, attended King's Lynn Irons Club's Christmas meal in December last year.
