Magical Marshall can’t stop scoring



Magical Marshall

Callum Marshall really is the coming Hammers man!

The 19 year old striker is having a sensational start to his season in the Development team and was again on the scoresheet with a goal in the 2-2 draw against defending Premier League Two champions Manchester City at Rush Green.

That saw him record his 12th goal in nine games and make it clear why he was included in the Carabao Cep squad for the win over Lincoln City.

And in fairness to manager David Moyes it should be remembered he made it clear some youngsters were being allowed to leave the club for some outstanding prospects.

12 goals in nine games for magical Marshall

Marshall is certainly among them along with Divin Mubama, George Earthey, Dan Chesters, Kaelan Casey and several more.

The official site is making quite a claim in declaring his goal against City was possibly his best of the season, rattled into the top corner with his weaker right foot to make it seven from the last four games. Astonishing stat!

    Love this piece Hughie rightly lauding the great work of Kev Keen with our talented lads. This is one area that Moyes needs to attend to, the integration and confidence building of the developing boys. Yes we lost some by design, Longello annoyed me most, but we have also lost internationals with regret more recently, Baptiste and Mukasa to Man City and Nello Liverpool . Now Moyes has to nurture Mubama, Marshall, Chester’s, Earthy, Rigge and more. With our strong squad, minus left back cover, Moyes should be in a wonderful position to blood young man as sub ons, get them ready, build them up. Supporters of a certain age (!) know how wonderful this can be, having lived it. This could be Moyes’ true legacy if he gets it right, and when he retires, how he will smile!!!
