George going great guns

George Moncur is aiming to the next step towards making his West Ham United debut after joining the first-team squad on their pre-season tour in Germany.

Still only 18, the midfielder established himself in the Development Squad last season before embarking on a successful loan spell with npower League Two side AFC Wimbledon. There, Moncur made his Football League debut and scored twice in 20 league appearances.

The teenager's progress was rewarded with a seat on the plane to Germany, where Moncur will hope to make his mark in pre-season matches against Rot Weiss Erfurt, Dynamo Dresden and Energie Cottbus.

"We've had to work quite hard in training on Monday night and Tuesday but we've got a game on Wednesday, so hopefully we can win that," he told West Ham TV. "Hopefully I'll get some part in the games and show the manager what I can do and hopefully I can stamp my mark on them.

"All the lads have done well. They have worked so it's gone really well so far so hopefully when the game comes around I will play. My aim is to work hard, train well and take those habits onto the pitch and see what happens.

"All the senior lads are quality and are quick to tell you if you are doing something wrong, which helps me a lot."
