13_07_10 Boreham Wood v. WHU TS 1st half

West Ham United kicked off their pre-season friendly programme with a convincing 6-2 victory over Cork City. Sam Allardyce's side have spent the past few days training in Ireland and used 21 players against Cork, including former Sunderland defender Titus Bramble. The Premier League club made a flying start to the game as Alou Diarra headed home Joe Cole's corner after just five minutes and the same two players were involved in the second goal on 18 minutes. Diarra picked up possession and fed Kevin Nolan, who played in Cole to finish, and it was almost 3-0 on the half-hour when Modibo Maiga clipped the crossbar.

Cork pulled a goal back on 38 minutes through former Rochdale winger Adam Rundle and the hosts were given a reprieve two minutes into the second half when Mark Noble saw a penalty saved after Ravel Morrison had been fouled.

Matt Taylor drilled home a low shot from 25 yards on 62 minutes and West Ham made it 4-1 on 72 minutes when new signing Danny Whitehead's cross was headed home by Paul McCallum. Noble was successful from the penalty spot a minute later and Morrison got in on the act with five minutes to go before Cork notched a second through Rob Lehane.

It was another case of a job well done for West Ham United after their 3-0 win at Boreham Wood in their latest pre-season match, according to assistant manager Neil McDonald. The Hammers began to ease away from their Conference South hosts with two goals in 60 seconds around the 20 minute mark - the first coming from Ravel Morrison, with that strike quickly followed by a Ricardo Vaz Te header. Kevin Nolan's shot on the turn then made it 3-0 late on and McDonald was delighted to continue a positive start to pre-season. Wednesday's victory came on the back of a 6-2 win at Cork City on Sunday and McDonald believes having matches so soon after the start of pre-season training helps to focus the players' minds. "It was a good workout," he explained. "Two sets of 45 minutes for the players, which was great and no injuries, which is even better. "We scored some good goals as well, so we're on track to where we want to be. We've just come back from Cork, we had a good week there, the boys have been getting their fitness up and that certainly showed on Wednesday. "I thought we were dominant, we passed the ball really well and moved it on with a bit of tempo, more so than we did on Sunday, so that's encouraging. We were nice and tight too, so all in all it's a good start to pre-season and it gives everybody lots of confidence to try and push on. "Games always focus the mind a little more because there's a little bit on it, "With all due respect to them, we're playing teams who maybe don't move the ball on or have better touches than us, but we've got to make sure we get our touch right, we move it on and don't get ourselves in trouble."

Kevon Nolan and James Collison struck as West Ham saw off Championship new-boys Bournemouth. Skipper Nolan broke the deadlock early on in Stephen Purches' testimonial at Dean Court. And Collison struck a controversial second just before the break to give Sam Allardyce's men an easy friendly win. Nolan used his loaf to put the Hammers ahead when he nodded home Guy Demel's ninth-minute cross. Collison then put the game safe — but the Cherries felt hard-done by after seeing a free-kick shout fall on deaf ears. Modibo Maiga initially lost the ball on the touchline but won it back off Steve Cook. Bournemouth wanted a foul but play was waved on and Maiga freed Collison to round keeper Darryl Flahavan. Former Spurs star and Cherries icon Darren Anderton was given a late run-out in the match, to celebrate Purches' decade at the club.

Joe Cole and James Collins netted at the start of each half as West Ham scored a 2-1 friendly win over Colchester at the Weston Homes Community Stadium. The Hammers were gifted an early lead when Mark Cousins' attempted clearance ricocheted off Cole and into the net, and they doubled their lead after the restart when Collins headed home Cole's corner. Substitute Jabo Ibehre headed in a stoppage-time consolation for Colchester, but it proved the last action of the match. West Ham boss Sam Allardyce fielded a strong field for the trip up the A12, with summer signing Adrian in goal and veteran Romania defender Razvan Rat also in the starting line-up. And the visitors got off to a dream start on seven minutes when goalkeeper Cousins' clearance bounced back into his own net off Cole. Colchester responded well to that early setback, with Clinton Morrison forcing a fine save from Adrian and Gavin Massey curling a low shot just wide. Cousins denied teenager Elliott Lee just before half-time but he was beaten again on 50 minutes by defender Collins' powerful header. Colchester gave their fans something to cheer about in injury time when Ibehre headed Tosin Olufemi's cross past Adrian, but it was too little, too late. West Ham will now travel to Germany for a training camp which includes games against Mainz and Hamburg.

West Ham United U21s started their pre-season schedule with a convincing 4-0 win over Swansea City 4-0 at Little Heath. Three first-half goals from Kieran Sadlier, George Moncur and Sean Maguire put the Hammers on track for victory, with substitute Paul McCallum rubber stamping the result late in the second half. U21 boss Nick Haycock had the pleasure of being able to select from a large pool of talent, including a selection of scholars, young professionals and players with first-team experience. Both sides looked energetic in the early stages, but it was the travelling side who nearly took the lead. Swansea's attacking mentality created an effort on goal, but they failed to keep the follow-up shot on target after Stephen Henderson had parried the original shot. West Ham made Swansea pay for not taking their chances when Sadlier got on the end of a whipped right-wing cross and volleyed past the goalkeeper from close range. Then, a little more than ten minutes later, West Ham doubled their lead. Moncur picked up the ball in the centre of the pitch, laid it into the feet of Maguire, who held off the defender long enough for Moncur to charge through the defensive line and slot in West Ham's second. The game was pretty much over on 36 minutes when Irish striker Maguire got on the end of Amos Nasha's through ball to add a third. Into the second half, it was the combination of Nathan Mavila's corners and McCallum's height that was threatening the Swansea defence. On three separate occasions, McCallum rose above everyone else in the Swansea penalty area for a free header at goal, but hitting the crossbar was the closest the towering striker went to scoring with his head. It was a different story with his feet, however, as the former Dulwich Hamlet man buried a low shot into the far corner off the right-hand post with just a few minutes remaining.

20th July 2013

West Ham suffered their first defeat ahead of the new season as they lost 4-1 to Mainz at the Stadion am Bruchweg. The Hammers had travelled to Germany on the back of four successive friendly victories but they were no match for the hosts in the first half. Dani Schahin gave Mainz a ninth-minute lead when he collected Nicolai Muller's precise pass and fired past Jussi Jaaskelainen. The home side doubled their advantage in the 21st minute through Muller when he raced clear down the middle after combining well with Benedikt Saller. Mainz, who are further ahead in their pre-season preparations, continued to dominate before the interval and Muller almost made it 3-0 on the stroke of half-time but Jaaskelainen diverted his shot behind. West Ham improved after the interval and they were back in the game in the 47th minute when Joe Cole volleyed home after Ricardo Vaz Te had nodded back Mark Noble's free-kick. Modibo Maiga then went close to equalising for the visitors before Mainz restored their two-goal cushion in the 74th minute with Shawn Parker netting from the spot after James Tomkins was penalised for a foul on Yunus Malli. Sebastian Polter then volleyed home a fourth goal for the Bundesliga side from Parker's centre four minutes later.

West Ham bounced back from their heavy defeat to Mainz at the weekend with a 3-1 pre-season friendly victory over Hamburg on Tuesday night in Flensburg.

The Hammers were beaten 4-1 by Mainz in the opening match of their tour to Germany as they suffered their first loss of the summer. But the Premier League side enjoyed success against another Bundesliga outfit in the shape of Hamburg, with Matt Jarvis playing a big part in the win. All four goals were scored in the first half with Alou Diarra and James Tomkins both heading in Jarvis corners to put West Ham 2-0 up inside 30 minutes. Hamburg halved the deficit through Heiko Westermann in the 43rd minute but Sam Allardyce's men added a third soon after through a Ravel Morrison penalty after Jarvis had been brought down.

EINTRACHT BRAUNSCHWEIG (Germany)

Nick Haycock says his West Ham United Development Squad will continue to learn from their experiences following a 3-2 pre-season defeat at Conference National club Braintree Town. The Hammers played the better football for long periods at The Amlin Stadium and led 2-1 just after half-time, only for naive defending to allow Alan Devonshire's side to snatch the victory. McCallum scored his fourth goal in four pre-season appearances following fine work from Blair Turgott and George Moncur to level just before half-time. Sadlier then stole the show with a fantastic individual strike two minutes after the break, only for Braintree to take advantage of two slack pieces of defending to snatch the win. "They were fantastic goals and that's the disappointment because Kieran Sadlier's effort should have been the winning goal. Because they played 4-4-2, we said to our three midfielders to be a bit braver and try to get goal-side of their midfield and dominate them in the middle and release the wide players. "We felt we had quality in the wide areas to make goalscoring chances with passes in behind full-backs etcetera. Kieran has that ability and I don't know if we gave him enough of the ball. "We had a lot of possession, but what they have to learn is that it's not just about keeping the football. You've got to work the ball to try to carve open the opposition and we weren't as good as we were against Swansea and Wolves."

West Ham's pre-season trip to Germany ended with a comfortable win as United brushed aside the challenge of hosts Eintracht Braunschweig. Having opened their tour with a fairly hefty 4-1 reversal against Mainz 05 last weekend, Sam Allardyce's first team squad refound their form in midweek when recording a comfortable 3-1 win over Hamburg SV. And like that previous outing, West Ham's final test of the tour ended in victory when they completed a second win with the space of just four days through goals from Modibo Maiga and Mo Diame. The goal that gave West Ham the lead was somewhat fortuitous as Ermin Bicakcic's attempted pass clipped the United striker, who was attempting to intercept the ball, before spinning beyond the reach of stranded goalkeeper Davan and into the back of the net. However there was no luck involved when the Hammers doubled their lead three minutes from the break as goalscorer Maiga combined with midfield partner Diame, who made it 2-0 with a cheeky backheel. Still reeling from having fallen two behnd, the home side were in complete disarray 60 seconds later when Maiga added his second of the day and West Ham's third. A dreadful backpass directly from the kick-off allowed the 25-year-old Malian to go round the 'keeper before placing the ball into an empty net, giving the Irons a 3-0 half time advantage - a lead they maintained for the remainder of the game with no further goals arriving after the break.

13_07_29 Southend United v. WHU TS

West Ham United's Under-18s continued their preparations for the new season with a thrilling victory over their Charlton Athletic counterparts on Tuesday afternoon. Steve Potts' team travelled to south London to take on the Addicks at their Sparrows Lane training ground and quickly stamped their authority on the contest. Jordan Brown, a first year scholar who joined the Academy from Arsenal this summer, notched twice before the break to put the Hammers in a commanding position. But Charlton came roaring back in the second half to level thanks to goals from Mehawl Martin and Tomi Adeloye.

Their efforts were to prove in vain however, as Marcio Martins popped up with a last-minute winner to give the Hammers the perfect send off for their participation in the Eurofoot Tournament in Belgium from Friday. Under-18s manager Steve Potts said: "It was a deserved win. We had the chances to make it more comfortable, and you never know what might happen when a team gets it back to 2-1. "So to respond positively when they brought it back to 2-2 was excellent and I was pleased with the workout."

Goals from Reece Burke, Danny Whitehead and Dylan Tombides were enough to give the Development Squad victory over Colchester United in a hard-fought game. On a night when some of Nick Haycock's regulars were with the first team taking on RCD Espanyol in Barcelona, some unfamiliar faces showed they could still do the business. Burke set the ball rolling for the Hammers after 36 minutes, heading home from close range after a Sean Maguire shot cannoned off the bar. Tombides added a second with his first touch of the game moments after coming on as a substitute before Whitehead put the game to bed with a well-struck effort from long range. The game gave some valuable playing time to those keen to impress Haycock ahead of the Development Squad's next match against Manchester City in the Barclays U21 Premier League on Friday 13 September. The match at the Weston Homes Community Stadium started at a fierce pace, with both sides eager to retain possession and move the ball around on a slick surface. Few chances were created early on before the game was sparked into life by Josh Cullen, who latched on to Blair Turgott's pass and lobbed the on-rushing keeper but could only watch as his effort struck the post after 18 minutes. Colchester, stung into action by Cullen's close shave, should have been in front when Ryan Melaugh scuffed his shot straight at Vit Nemvara after finding himself clean through. Melaugh was at the centre of things once again moments later as he thought he had given the home side the lead, but a look over to the linesman revealed his close-range effort was taken from an offside position. The Hammers made Melaugh pay when Burke nodded home from six yards on 36 minutes following Maguire's acrobatic effort, which rebounded off the crossbar. After the interval the game was equally well contested, with few clear cut opportunities until a moment of quality from substitute Tombides lit up the game with 22 minutes remaining. The Australian, who had only been on for one minute, showed great skill and composure to chip the 'keeper with his first touch, having latched onto a through ball. The Hammers were comfortable moments later when Whitehead, picking the ball up in midfield, advanced toward goal and drilled his shot into the bottom corner. Kieran Sadlier might have made it four before the end but could only hit his shot straight at the goalkeeper as Haycock's team secured a well-deserved victory.

Having twice fallen behind at the Hornchurch Stadium, goals from the returning Dylan Tombides, Blair Turgott, George Moncur and Paul McCallum eventually saw the Hammers to a comfortable 4-2 success. Victory, however, was the very least that Haycock expected, with a greater emphasis on the manner in which his young charges went about their business. "For the boys, it's almost a no-win situation because we're expected to win the game, regardless of what side we put. There were no first-team players obviously, but we put out a healthy squad. "We try to get the ball down and play. They've kept the grass long for their first game of the season and we didn't really play with the tempo that we did against Southend the other night. I warned the boys before the game. I explained you've got to make this a game that's played at a tempo, so that you take your higher fitness and technical levels to a place where you're producing chance after chance. "I think the disappointment was that the two goals we conceded were sloppy. All pre-season we've played some good stuff. You can see the type of football that we try to play and we've created chances, but equally we've given some sloppy goals away. That's why they're in the Development Squad, because they're developing players. There are still some youngsters in there and there were some pleasing performances as well." None more so than that of Tombides, who marked his first start in some two years with an expertly-taken goal. Though the Australian has had to contend with testicular cancer over the past couple of years, he needed just 12 minutes to get his name on the score-sheet here.

West Ham United have made a superb start at the pre-season Eurofoot Tournament in Belgium, winning four of their five Group A fixtures to reach the semi-finals.

The Under-18s won their opening three Group A matches without conceding a single goal, scoring eight goals themselves in the process. A 2-1 win over KV Oostende meant defeat by the same scoreline by FC Utrecht could not stop the Hammers finish top of their group.

The Hammers opened the competition in Oostduinkerke on Friday afternoon with a 1-0 victory over Club Brugge, with new signing Jordan Brown scoring the only goal of the game.

Later the same day, Rob Girdlestone, Marcio Martins, and trialist Carlos Gonzalez-Cabrera were on target in a 3-0 win over a second Belgian side, AA Gent.

Saturday morning saw Steve Potts' youngsters take to the pitch for a third time, but Belgian giants Anderlecht proved to be no match for West Ham as Brown, Nathan Mavila and schoolboys Decarrey Sheriff and Fatia Adebayo on target in a 4-0 success.

West Ham completed their slate of Group A fixtures by beating a fourth Belgian side, KV Oostende, 2-1 with goals from Jamie Harney and Djair Parfitt-Williams. Sheriff scored in a 2-1 defeat by Dutch side FC Utrecht on Saturday evening, but a haul of 12 points could not stop the Hammers from winning Group A.

Having finished in the top two, the Hammers will meet local rivals and Group B runners-up Tottenham Hotspur in the semi-finals at 11am on Sunday local time, with the final to follow at 4.30pm.

13_08_04 NORDSJAELLAND EUROFOOT FINAL

West Ham United enjoyed a successful Eurofoot Tournament in Belgium over the weekend, reaching the final of the 12-team tournament but coming up just short against Danish club Nordsjaelland to claim second place. The annual pre-season tournament for under-19 teams brought together sides from Belgium, England, the Netherlands, France and Denmark for three days of competition.

West Ham's youngsters faced five 50-minute games in the group stage, and won four of them - seeing off Club Brugge, AA Gent, Anderlecht and KV Oostende, before suffering their only first phase defeat to FC Utrecht. They topped the group with 12 points, Anderlecht finishing two points further back to book the second semi-final place.

Sunday morning brought a semi-final meeting with Tottenham Hotspur, and after a 1-1 draw secured thanks to Nathan Mavila's second goal of the tournament, the Hammers prevailed 5-4 on penalties.

The other semi-final also went down to a shootout, as Nordsjaelland got the better of Anderlecht 4-3 following a 0-0 stalemate. However, the Hammers could not carry their form into the final game and were edged out 1-0 by the Danes.The tournament also brought individual honours for the Hammers' Moses Makasi, who picked up the Player of the Tournament prize

West Ham ended pre-season with a morale-boosting win against Portuguese Champions League qualifiers Pacos de Ferreira at the Boleyn Ground. Sam Allardyce's side, featuring none of his three summer signings got off to a flyer when Ravel Morrison, given a starting berth having impressed in pre-season scored the game's opening goal - his sixth of pre-season - with just 16 seconds on the clock. United's lead was doubled five minutes ahead of the break when Modibo Maiga, who looks set to start against Cardiff City next weekend in the absence of Andy Carroll, scored from close range. The visitors grabbed a consolation just six minutes into the second half when Manuel José's curling, dipping shot evaded the arms of Jussi Jaaskelainen.

Little Heath

2 - 0 (Bywater, Page)

10th August 2013

West Ham United Under-18s ended their hectic pre-season schedule with a  deserved 2-0 win over Crystal Palace at Little Heath. An  outstanding first-half free-kick from Kieran Bywater set the Hammers on their way, before Lewis Page popped up with a rare goal in the closing  minutes. It was the visitors who burst into life in the opening minute, when Javen Palmer found space on the edge of the Hammers penalty area to fire a volley at goal, bringing a brilliant low save out of 'keeper Gines Guzman Rosique.

But West Ham soon got a foothold in the game, dictating play with some brilliant one touch football in the middle of the pitch. And they could have been ahead just 15 minutes in, when Jordan Brown got on the end of Nathan Mavila's left wing cross, but missed the target from less than six yards. The home side upped the pressure and were rewarded with the opener on the half-hour mark. After Brown was fouled 22 yards from goal by Palace centre-back Jahmal Howlett-Mundle, Bywater stepped up to curl a perfect free-kick into the top left hand corner of the goal. As Palace looked for an equaliser before the break, Mandela Egbo crossed for the unmarked Will Hoare

at the back post, who sliced his effort straight into Guzman's hands. It was much the same after the interval, as West Ham continued to do most of the pressing. This time, Emmanual Onariase smashed one goalwards, forcing Palace's Tom King to tip the ball over the crossbar. From the resulting corner, Mavila's deep centre was turned back across the face of the goal by Onariase, but Jerry Amoo, under pressure, fired high over the bar from close range.

It was West Ham who looked the most likely to get the next goal and it very nearly came from another set piece. After Djair Parfitt-Williams had been fouled, Nathan Mavila stepped up to cross it towards the back post, but it was just too quick for both Jamie Harney and Onariase who slid in vain to try and apply a telling touch. No matter, as In the closing minutes, West Ham did double their lead. Though Parfitt-Williams had been tripped, the Hammers played on and Page, arriving from the left-back position, fired across the goalkeeper into the far right hand corner.

Nick Haycock laid down the law to some members of his Development Squad after a below par performance led to a 1-0 friendly defeat against Luton Town at Rush Green.

The coach was unhappy with his team which featured ten changes from their last Barclays Under-21 Premier League match.

The game provided an opportunity for players who have not seen much game time recently to catch Haycock's eye but he was left unimpressed by their efforts, "I'm very disappointed. We were as poor as I can remember for a long time in the first half and everything that we talked about before the game we didn't do.

"I asked a question of a group of players who had one player that started our last league match in Danny Whitehead, but apart from that the team was totally changed and players were playing together for the first time.

"For me football's a common language, they've all been training with us, they know the standards we expect of them, they know the way we play and they didn't produce a performance."

The only goal of the game came in a first half in which the away side were dominant for long spells and deservedly went ahead when their captain Matt Robinson saw his left foot piledriver find the bottom corner.

Elliot Lee bagged four goals as the Development Squad produced a five star performance to hammer Ipswich Town 5-0 at Rush Green.

Lee got the rout started after just seven minutes with a deflected free-kick before doubling the lead with a powerful finish just before half-time.

The striker bagged his third and fourth goals within the space of two second half minutes as the home side tore their opponents apart time after time.

Pelly Ruddock completed the demolition job with 15 minutes remaining when he powered home first time to round off the perfect performance.

The Development Squad had won four of their six Barclays Under-21 Premier League matches coming into this friendly and they continued that form with another outstanding display.

A West Ham United XI slipped to a 4-2 friendly defeat at the Boleyn Ground on Thursday afternoon, as Charlton Athletic came from behind to register victory in this behind-closed-doors contest.

Summer recruit Mladen Petric netted his first goal in claret and blue to hand the Hammers a first-half lead, only for a Basile Camerling equaliser and Joe Pigott's double to put the visitors firmly in the ascendency.

Second-half substitute George Moncur halved the Hammers' arrears with 64 minutes gone, but Mark Gower's late volley all but settled matters.

A very content Nick Haycock left the R Costings Abbey Stadium happy with what he saw after the Development Squad earned a 2-1 win over Conference National leaders Cambridge United.

Elliot Lee opened the scoring with a superb individual strike after 36 minutes as the Hammers held a deserved half-time lead. The visitors equalised with 15 minutes left but Lee again found the net, volleying home a Blair Turgott cross with just four minutes remaining to leave his coach suitably happy with their evening's work. "We had a little bit of a lull at the start of the second half when I thought we were a little bit pedestrian with our passing because we didn't pass with the same purpose as in the first half.

"The boys showed good character after it went to 1-1 then to go on and win the game with two excellent finishes on the night from Elliot. They won us the game and we all know what he's capable of.

"It was a game of two halves in terms of the development of the players but to come into any match against a Conference side is a good test for a young team."

The win came against a U's team which included several of the first-team players that have helped them to an unbeaten start to the season, winning ten and drawing five of their opening 15 league matches.
