Hammers kids are flying

West Ham Under-18s are top of the Premier League South table and they absolutely battered Arsenal on Saturday.

The Hammers kids beat the young Gunners 4-1 to extend their lead at he top of the table to 10 points.

The Irons actually had a 3-0 lead before half-time and perhaps the best player on the pitch was Divin Mubama.

He scored twice in the first-half, while there were also goals from George Earthy and Favour Fawumni.

All the more impressive was the fact that the game was an away one for the Irons, and that the game took place at the Gunners’ training ground.

Mubama has clearly caught the eye of senior management at the London Stadium, as he made his senior debut in the Europa Conference League against FCSB.

There is clearly a lot of talent in the youth ranks in east London, although the pathway is perhaps not as simple as it should be.

  1. I hope that David Moyes wakes up to the possibility that he is slowly destroying the Academy. Refusing to give the young players a decent chance to progress into the first team is pushing them out the door to other clubs. I hope Mubama doesn’t join the exodus!

  2. Well done again the lads! 👍

  3. Since Moyes has been in charge the youth team has been bringing in some really good quality prospects like the kid Marshall and the lads from Ireland.
