Hammers name Europa League knockout squad

UEFA Europa League regulations required competing clubs to submit their ‘List A’ of senior players by 11pm on Friday 2 February 2024.

List A is comprised of no more than 25 players, including a minimum of eight ‘locally-trained players’ who have spent a minimum of 36 months between the ages of 15-21 registered with a club affiliated with The Football Association.

Four of those eight must be ‘club-trained’, meaning they have been registered with West Ham United for a minimum of 36 months between the ages of 15-21. The other four are ‘association-trained’, which means they have registered with any other clubs affiliated with The FA.

West Ham have named two club-trained players – goalkeeper Joseph Anang and defender Ben Johnson – and four locally-trained players – Michail Antonio, Jarrod Bowen, Aaron Cresswell and Danny Ings – in the squad.

James Ward-Prowse and Kalvin Phillips, who also locally-trained, are also registered, meaning West Ham have named a total of 21 players on List A.

Phillips is added to List A following his arrival on loan from Manchester City.

No further players can be added to List A for the knockout stages.

Additionally, the Club has submitted List B, which is comprised of players born on or after 1 January 2002 and since their 15th birthday have been registered with West Ham for at least 24 months.

Among those on List B is Divin Mubama, who was part of the Irons’ UEFA Europa Conference League-winning squad. List B can be updated ahead of the round of 16.
