West Ham youngster George Earthy enjoyed a dream comeback after a concussion scare. The 19-year-old midfielder marked his return with a goal in the U21s’ emphatic 4-1 victory over Blackburn Rovers.

Earthy had been sidelined following a head injury during his Premier League debut against Fulham. He followed concussion protocols diligently, ensuring a safe return to the pitch.

Last Friday’s match witnessed Earthy’s return to competitive action. Not only did he play a full part, but he also got on the scoresheet, a significant milestone. This win secured a coveted spot in the Premier League 2 Play-Offs quarterfinals for the West Ham U21s.

Earthy, who recently signed a new professional contract, expressed his gratitude to the club’s medical staff for their support during his recovery. He emphasised his focus on the upcoming Play-Off matches.

“It was a challenging few weeks out,” Earthy admitted. “The situation wasn’t ideal, but the medical team was brilliant. They made the whole process much easier. Being back on the pitch feels amazing, and scoring a goal and contributing to the win makes it even better.”

Earthy praised his teammates’ experience in cup competitions, highlighting their FA Youth Cup win last year. “This group has a lot of experience in knockout games,” he said. “Many of us lifted the FA Youth Cup last year, so these single-elimination matches are where we shine. We know how to perform under pressure, and hopefully, we can replicate that success in the Play-Offs.”

West Ham fans will be thrilled to see Earthy back in action, especially considering his impressive return. His performance bodes well for the U21s’ Play-Off campaign and suggests a bright future for the young midfielder.
