Potts delighted with the kids


stevepUnder 21 boss Steve Potts couldn’t have been more pleased with his team’s 2-1 over Manchester City last night.

His son Dan opened the scoring heading in Djair Parfitt-Williams’ cross..The Hammers doubled their lead early in the second half when Adam Drury stabbed Jordan Brown’s cross into his own net.

Olivier Ntcham scored late on to halvethe Irons’ advantage but it proved too little too late.

Speaking to the official site after the game, Potts said: “I’m delighted. I thought the lads did very well. The effort they put in was fantastic, they got what we deserved really after a couple of games where I thought we did some good stuff but lost by the odd goal.

“Last week against Norwich City we were 1-0 up with a few minutes to go but then we threw it away. But tonight we did the job.

“I’ve been happy with the last two games and tonight, in most aspects, we saw the game through. I think that’s the stage that the players are at, at the moment.

They’re young boys but they need to manage games and get over the line as much as they can. We need to build on this toughness about them.”
