George Earthy couldn’t have been happier following his goal for West Ham against Luton yesterday. The Hammers’ academy graduate was briefly interviewed by the club’s in-house media team right after the game and was visibly buzzing after his excellent finish.

Earthy’s goal received the loudest cheer of the day at the London Stadium, rounding off a superb play after great work from Vladimir Coufal and Mohammed Kudus.

Asked how he felt, Earthy said, “It was literally a dream—that’s what you dream of your whole life. I’m a West Ham fan. I can’t describe it; I can’t put it into words.” At that point, Kaelan Casey, who also got a few minutes as a substitute for Angelo Ogbonna, joined his friend and added, “Yeah, it wasn’t bad, was it?”

Both were thrilled to have made their mark, highlighting the morale boost that comes when academy players are given their chance.

    A nice parting gift from Mr Moyes, allowing a couple of academy graduates to have their day and shine!

    Seeing one of our own hit the back of the net, Priceless. Hope we see more of this young man. He’s a hammer to the core.

  • Bonzo says:

    These lads developing over the last few years winning the youth cup etc are part of the best crop of youngsters we’ve had since Joe Cole’s day probably. Great that they’re finally getting to an age where we can start using them. If they’re good enough I’ve no doubt theyll make the breakthrough into the first team. Lopetegui is a lucky man to inherit these lads.
