Season 1992-93 1991-92 Friendlies 1993-94 Friendlies

As in last year's competition the initial matches of the recent Under-19's International Tournament in Dallas, Texas were played on a group basis with the winners and runners-up of the four sections progressing to the quarter-final stages of the tourney.

Once again our preliminary group contained two American clubs, Dallas and Arsenal Alta of California, as well as ourselves and a National Team from Trinidad & Tobago.

A good all-round team performance with Jamie Victory and Gary Waters outstanding in defence secured an excellent victory. Steve Blaney scored two minutes before the interval to add to Paul Whitmarsh's opening goal, which was just reward for the striker's pacey display throughout the game, Danny Shipp, playing in an unfamiliar midfield role, scored a good goal with an excellent shot from 25 yards.

The final scoreline did not reflect the young Hammers' superiority. Much against the run of play the Caribbean side opened the scoring before Gary Waters equalised. Roy Johnson put us in front just after the interval before the opposition scored a fluke goal when Jonathon Bates hit a strong clearance across goal and the ball struck a surprised opposing forward on the foot and rocketed into our net. David Pratt scored our winner near the end. Most unluckiest player on the pitch was Tony Richards who hit the crossbar no less than SEVEN times during the match.

Delayed from the previous day due to high winds and torrential rain the match finally got underway with the West Coast side taking a two goal lead before the interval. The Californians played some good football and showed how much the general standard of soccer has improved throughout the country in the last twelve months. Our goals from Whitmarsh and Michael Basham meant we finished on level points with Arsenal Alta in our group but they ended as winners of the section and the seeded team on the basis of having scored one more goal than us overall.

As one of the 'wildcard' (unseeded) teams we were drawn against pre-tournament favourites Real Madrid in the quarter-finals. The Spanish side had a very strong team and included in their line-up one player who has already played 10 times for the First Team in the Premier League of Spain.

A convincing win for our fellow Europeans gained on the basis of four goals scored in eight minutes or so in the first 20 minutes of the opening half. Roy Johnson was sent off for a foul and when the opposition got a fifth goal it confirmed their place in the semi-final.

The other results at this stage were A.C. Fiorentina (Italy) beating LD Alajuelense by 2-1, Boca Juniors (Argentina) dismissing CD Guadalajara (Mexico) by 3-2 and Arsenal Alta ending 2-1 winners over F.C. Tatran. Real Madrid then progressed to the Final with a 2-1 victory over Fiorentina whilst Boca Juniors scored the only goal in the other serni-final against Arsenal Alta. In the Final the Spaniards had a comfortable 3-0 triumph over the South Americans.

In our opening group match we met TSV Munich 1860, and in a onesided affair we romped to a 12-1 victory over the German side. Danny Shipp, with five goals, was ably assisted by Darren Maeer (3) and Mark Adams (2), while Matthew Clements and Andy Huckstep contributed with one apiece.

 

The Hammers' Under-16's squad won a prestigious international tournament in Italy. The competition was arranged by Fiorentina who invited teams from Germany and Italy as well as ourselves to take part. Under the direction of Jimmy Neighbour, our Youth Development Officer, the Young Hammers' squad comprised: Jerome John, Steven Blaney, Stuart Richardson (captain), Anthony Browne, Warren Oakley, Wayne Joscelyn, Darren Maeer, Matthew Clements, Danny Shipp, Mark Adams, Andy Huckstep, Matthew Lockwood, Jamie Impey, Stuart Naughton and Scott Moore.

For our second match we were pitted against the young Italians of Modena. A resounding 3-0 victory was achieved with goals from Shipp (2) and Maeer and led to a final confrontation with host club

Fiorentina, who had won their group after a physical encounter with fellow Italians Torino. In that match three players had been sent off and six others booked. A large partisan crown witnessed the home side try similar robust tactics in the final. We opened the scoring after 15 minutes with a Clements goal and added a second through Shipp on the half-hour.

Our goalkeeper Jerome John was called upon to make three outstanding saves in a very brave display during a fine team performance.

Midway through the second half Maeer made an excellent run down the right wing and his inch-perfect cross found the unmarked Shipp who, after controlling the ball, fired home an emphatic third goal.

Jerome John's performance earned him Goalkeeper of the Tournament, while Danny Shipp earned a Goalscorer of the Tournament award and Darren Maeer was voted Player of the Tournament.

Manager Jimmy Neighbour was naturally delighted at the outcome but was more especially pleased at the impeccable behaviour of his charges even though they were often under extreme physical pressure at times. The whole squad, he said, was a credit to West Ham United.
