David Martin made his first debut in a West Ham shirt for the Under 23’s in a friendly against a Brentford B team last night.

The 33-year-old son of Alvin Martin played all ninety minutes at Griffen park with 19-year-old Joseph Anang an un-used substitute.

The friendly with the Bees finished 2-2 with Antony Sully and Nathan Holland the two West Ham scorers.
