Brown scores two past Brentford

BrownWest  Ham Academy Under 18 side finished their pre-season campaign with a deserved  3-1 win over Brentford at Little Heath on Saturday morning with Jordon Brown scoring two of them. Brown who left Arsenal to sign for the Hammers in 2013 is tipped as a West Ham star striker of the future.

The 17-year-old scored regularly in Arsenal’s youth set-up and was promoted into Arsenal’s Under-18 side in 2012. On signing for West Ham Brown last year said “I’d been at Arsenal at eight years and they wanted to keep me, but I sat down with my parents and my agents and we thought it was a better decision to come to West Ham. The opportunities are here and I thought, at Arsenal, maybe I could have faded away because I’ve seen it happen before.I thought, the opportunity was there for me at West Ham and it has the attributes for me to be what I want to be in football. I’m a No9 and my objective in a game is to score goals, I want to help the team out and to lead from the front. I’m quick and strong and I think I can run with the ball as well. I’m an attacker.My plan is to go in hard at the start of pre-season and really just try to impress people from there.I’ve obviously got to score goals whenever I can because I’m a striker, whichever age-group I am put into. Whether it’s Under-18s or Under-21s, I’ve just got to do my best.”

With performances like today Brown should be moving up to the U21’s and from there the first team in the not too distant future.
