A Bernardo Rosa hat-trick sealed a perfect opening day win for West Ham United’s U18s on Saturday as they were 4-1 winners over Norwich City in the Premier League U18 division.

The Brazilian gave the Hammers the lead in the first half before Veron Parkes added another early in the second half.

The Canaries pulled one back to make a game of it, but two penalties dispatched by Rosa himself put the visitors out of sight and secured three points for the new duo of coaches – Jack Collison and Mark Phillips – in the dugout.

The Hammers ensured their record remained at 100 per cent thanks to goals from Emmanuel Longelo, Veron Parkes and Sebastian Nebyla in the 3-2 win over Southampton. The Hammers had plenty of confidence but fell behind on 17 minutes when the Saints’ Christian Norton put them in front. With nine minutes left of the first half, the Hammers equalised. A driving run from Ajibola Alese pushed Southampton back before the defender’s pass found the run of Longelo, whose first effort was blocked before the youngster bagged at the second attempt to make it 1-1. Just before the half time whistle, Jack Collison and Steve Potts’ side went in front. A long throw-in from Will Greenidge was flicked into the path of Parkes, who, drifting inside the pitch from the left, fired a wicked shot back across the keeper inside the near post from 20 yards.

Southampton came back out in the second half raring to go and it was all square again just before the hour mark when Kayne Ramsey found the net. But with just the Hammers pushing, a slice of luck came with just five minutes left on the clock and with it, the winner. Parkes, dangerous throughout, once again drifted inside and unleashed a stinging drive which struck Nebyla on the back and deflected in.

15 September 2018

West Ham United U18s’ 100 per cent record came to an end as Aston Villa broke Hammers’ hearts with two minutes remaining in the Midlands. Winger Colin Odutayo was the hero for the hosts, finishing off a late counter attack to put an end to Mark Phillips and Jack Collison’s team’s perfect start. West Ham had the first chance early on when after just seven minutes both centre-backs Josh Okotcha and Ajibola Alese could have scored during the same move.  A Sebastian Nebyla free-kick was swung in and Okotcha’s shot was saved before Alese blazed over from the resulting rebound. The Hammers remained on top throughout the first half and tested the Villa keeper Viljami Sinisalo for the first time seven minutes before the break. A stinging shot by joint top-scorer Veron Parkes saw the Finnish stopper dive high to his right, pushing the effort away to keep the scoreline goalless.

In the second period, West Ham continued to control the match as Louie Watson came on to bolster the middle of the park, but their dominance in possession could not be converted into goals. And with two minutes left on the clock, that frustration was multiplied as Villa struck the first and very late blow.

Manager: Mark Phillips and Jack Collison

West Ham United U18s’ blistering start to the 2018/19 campaign continued as they thrashed London rivals Fulham 4-1 at Little Heath.

Veron Parkes grabbed his third and fourth goals of what has already been an impressive first season as a scholar before Emmanuel Longelo added a second to his season tally. Sean Adarkwa – who was prolific for the Hammers during pre-season – scored the side’s fourth.

Fulham’s Jean-Pierre Tiehi did bag for the visitors to make it 2-1, but Jack Collison and Mark Phillips’ team were too strong throughout the clash in east London.

West Ham United's U18s were beaten 3-0 in their first Premier League Cup fixture of the season as they travelled to Blackburn Rovers.

Three first half goals did the damage for Rovers, who opened the scoring through Luke Brennan just 18 minutes in when he cut inside before firing in at the near post.

The Hammers could do little about the hosts' second, as George Wilson rocketed in a 30-yard screamer to give Jack Collison and Mark Phillips' side a mountain to climb.

And the win was sealed by Blackburn four minutes later as Sam Burns struck with the outside of his foot to make the game safe nine minutes before the break.

West Ham United U18s manager Mark Phillips was in philosophical mood after seeing his side beaten 9-0 by Tottenham Hotspur.

After starting the U18 Premier League Southern Division season with four straight wins, the Hammers followed a narrow defeat at Aston Villa by being overwhelmed by Spurs at a rain-soaked Rush Green.

Amazingly, West Ham edged the opening 45 minutes and missed a number of decent chances before falling behind to two goals in added time at the end of the first half.

After the break it was a different game as Tottenham took advantage of a shell-shocked and inexperienced home team featuring three schoolboy starters to run riot with seven further goals.

A late goal saw West Ham United suffer a narrow 2-1 U18 Premier League South defeat at Arsenal.

The Hammers, who started three schoolboys at London Colney, had come from a goal down to level through captain Ajibola Alese early in the second half, only for the Gunners to snatch victory when substitute Stanley Flaherty netted with just seven minutes remaining.

West Ham United’s U18s fell to London derby defeat on Saturday as Chelsea were 5-0 winners at Little Heath.

The Hammers, who fielded four schoolboys from the start against the Blues, endured a tough first 45 minutes as they found themselves four down at the break.

Tino Anjorin opened the scoring with a free-kick, before Henry Lawrence added a second.

Marcel Lewis made it three on the 20-minute mark, and it was almost certainly game over as Thierno Ballo headed in Chelsea’s fourth.

Seven minutes into the second half, Ballo grabbed his second as he was on hand to slide it over the line to make it 5-0 but the Hammers stood up strong and closed the floodgates for the remainder of the half.

 

West Ham United’s scholars fell to a fifth U18 Premier League South defeat in a row on an emotional day at Leicester City.

The young Hammers visited the King Power Stadium prior to kick-off, laying a wreath and paying their respects to Leicester chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha and the four other victims of the recent helicopter tragedy.

Jack Collison’s squad then travelled the short distance to the Foxes’ training ground, where a minute’s silence was held in memory of those who died the previous weekend.

When the game began at 12noon, Leicester went ahead within seven minutes through Ethan Fitzhugh.

There were no further goals until the 71st minute, when Terell Pennant converted Will Russ’s pass to put the hosts two goals to the good.

Schoolboy Jayden Fevrier, 15, halved West Ham’s arrears with seven minutes to play by scoring his first goal at U18 level.

But, despite the Hammers’ efforts to fashion a late equaliser, Leicester held on to secure their fourth consecutive league win.

Jack Collison was full of praise for West Ham United’s youth-team players after their 2-0 U18 Premier League South win at Reading.

The Irons followed up their 3-2 U18 Premier League Cup win over Manchester City before the international break with another impressive all-round performance.

Schoolboy striker Amadou Diallo made it three goals in two matches by opening the scoring on 18 minutes, before turning provider for captain Kristijan Belic to net his first for the club five minutes after half-time.

At the other end, goalkeeper Daniel Jinadu and defenders Jamal Baptiste, Josh Okotcha, Jeremy Ngakia and Jayden Fevrier were rewarded for fine displays, both individually and collectively, as the Hammers kept their first clean sheet in nine matches in all competitions.

West Ham United U18s’ 100 per cent record remains intact in Premier League U18 after their 1-0 win over Swansea City.

Bernardo Rosa’s second half goal was enough to give a dominant Hammers side all three points in south Wales and see them stay at the top of the southern league table alongside fellow London outfits Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.

The visitors created numerous opportunities in their third fixture of the campaign but had to wait until the 76th minute to break the deadlock, when a Swansea clearance landed at the feet of Rosa who struck low into the bottom corner.

The young Hammers triumphed by the odd goal in five in a see-saw contest at Little Heath, which saw them take the lead three times - and crucially hold on to the advantage on the third occasion.

Amadou Diallo scored a brace, while substitutes Odysseas Spyrides and Sebastian Nebyla combined for the latter to notch the all-important third goal eight minutes from time.

The victory gets the Hammers U18 Premier League Cup campaign back on track with three points from two group stage games and Collison hopes his team can build on a fine result.
