Under-18s report: West Ham 0 Chelsea 4

Webster and Castledine wrap it up

The points were all but sealed with eight minutes to go when another move on the right produced a goal. Thomas’ run and then cross into the box fell kindly for Webster who had the easy task of slotting home from 10 yards.

We were deep into injury time when substitute Castledine bundled home another Thomas cross from the right to claim our fourth and final goal of the morning. It’s a win that Brand and his players will be proud of as it sees us move up into sixth place in the Under-18 Premier League standings.

What’s next?

A trip to Southampton is next for our youngsters, kick-off next Saturday is 11am.
