Chelsea U18s 1-4 West Ham United U18s
Elliott Lee scored a hat-trick as West Ham United won 4-1 away at Chelsea to end their Premier Academy League campaign on a high.
The young forward, who has now scored five goals in three games since stepping up from the Under-16, was in clinical form and began the rout with a close-range strike after excellent work by Dominic Vose. Robert Hall then kept his own good run going with a penalty just before the interval, having been brought down himself.
Lee doubled his tally with a fine lofted effort over the Chelsea keeper and rounded out his treble with an individual effort after winning back possession. The home side got a late consolation but the final whistle ensured a tremendous result to follow a last week's 5-1 success at Reading, which itself came after a 4-1 home win against Watford.
West Ham United: Larkins, Young (Siafa 65), Potts, Sanchez (Sadlier 72), K Lee, Hunt, Hall (Miles 70), Powell, E Lee, Hurley, Vose
