West Ham United’s Under-21 team continued their impressive season with a convincing 4-1 victory over Blackburn Rovers last night, securing their place in the quarter-finals of the PL2 playoffs.

The match, held at Rush Green, saw the young Hammers take control just before the break. Sean Moore opened the scoring in the 43rd minute with a finely crafted finish that set the tone for the rest of the game.

The momentum carried into the second half, with West Ham quickly extending their lead. Callum Marshall added to the tally shortly after the restart, followed swiftly by George Earthy, whose goal further solidified the Hammers’ dominance.

Blackburn managed to pull one back through Jake Batty, injecting a brief moment of tension into the match. However, any hopes of a Blackburn comeback were dashed when Marshall completed his brace with a robust finish, ensuring a comfortable win for the home side.

Marshall’s performance was particularly noteworthy, coming off a challenging loan spell at West Bromwich Albion earlier in the season. The Northern Ireland international demonstrated his resilience and skill, quickly finding his scoring form upon his return.

The match also marked a significant milestone for George Earthy, who returned to action following a severe concussion sustained during his first-team debut. His recovery and subsequent performance were warmly received, highlighting his importance to the team.

Looking ahead, Steve Potts’ side is set to face either Sunderland or Wolverhampton Wanderers in the quarter-finals, as they continue their pursuit of playoff success.
