West Ham Youth results
WEST Ham United entertained Fulham in their first match of December.
Chances were hard to come by in a closely fought first half, but neither side could break the deadlock. After 66 minutes, Fulham took the lead with a well taken free-kick and shortly afterwards, Liam White brought down a Fyulham player in the box, to give away a penalty, which Fulham duly converted. West Ham upped the tempo and came close on a number of occasions, before James Tompkins headed home a Kyle Reid cross for a consolation goal in stoppage time.
Result: lost 1 - 2
The lads faced old rivals Millwall away next. West Ham dominated from the start and were rewarded with a 20th minute penalty, which David Cowley coolly slotted home. Millwall managed to cling on until half time, with the Hammers missing a host of chances. In the second half West Ham carried on as they had in the first. Despite Hogan Ephrahim going close, they had to wait until the 74th minute for David Cowley to wrap up the points with his second goal of the match.
Result: won 0 - 2
This concluded the Youth team league matches for 2005 and left the Hammers in second place in the table.
They did however have one more match to play against
Result : lost 4 – 2
West Ham Reserves had December off with the only game due against Arsenal being postponed. The lack of action has seen them slip to 8th in the table but with a number of games in hand.
