Hammers get ready for Tuesday night action

Five Hammers will be missing from the players David Moyes will be sending to the Abbey Stadium for tomorrow’s friendly against Cambridge United –  Declan Rice, Thilo Kehrer, Nayef Aguerd, Alphonse Areola and Lucas Paquetá.

Kurt Zouma is set to join them however, as he is aparently unable to train following his recent surgery.

Cambridge United

The fixture is a testimonial for Greg Taylor, who marks his tenth season with Cambridge United this campaign.

The 32-year-old defender has been at the Abbey Stadium since a summer 2013 transfer from Luton Town and has gone on to make in excess of 350 appearances for the club.

In that time, Taylor has recorded two promotions, one FA Trophy, and a Player of the Year award, playing every game in each of the promotion-winning campaigns.

He is one of the most decorated players to feature for Cambridge United and will mark his testimonial against the Club he supports.

Last year, Cambridge United finished 14th in League One, with 15 wins from their 46 games. They also memorably beat Newcastle United 1-0 in the FA Cup third round at St James Park, with Joe Ironside netting the winner in January 2022.

The team are currently 20th in League One with 20 points from 20 games and they are sitting one place above the relegation places.

Referee: Neil Hair
Assistants: George Byrne and Gareth Viccars
