Young Irons thrash Arsenal

The Irons under 18s kept up the pressure at the  top of the Barclays U18 Premier League South on Saturday with a thumping 3-0 victory over Arsenal..

Ccaptain Kieran Bywater and Jerry Amoo set the Hammers on their way with opening goals in the first eight minutes before Emmanuel Onariase’s strike near the end settled things.

The victory means the boys kept pace with leaders Fulham, who scored a 3-0 win at Chelsea on Friday. The pair both sit on 49 points from 22 matches played with eight games left.
