Outstanding Irons kid signs three year deal


George Earthy

By Hughie Southon

Hugely promising young Hammer George Earthy has signed a new three year deal with the club

The 18 year old really has looked the part for the U18s side that claimed a league and FA Youth Cup double in 2022/23, and has now put pen to paper on a deal until the summer of 2026.

His second professional contract comes on a journey that began six years old when he started  all six of West Ham United’s matches in last season’s FA Youth Cup-winning run, scoring three goals along the way.

He really has become one of the most exciting players in the development team and has impressed all who have seen him.

Earthy commented that he is really pleased to be extending his stay at the club and that a new contract is something he has been working at for some time

And he added that he was “buzzing” his journey with the club will continue for another three years.

He said: It means a lot to play for the team you support – and this contract is a massive vote of confidence in myself as a player going forwards.

“I want to push on now and keep showing everyone what I can do when playing for the U21s this season.”
