Lee's delight at award-winning year

Academy striker Elliot Lee enjoyed a productive 2012/13 campaign, netting 14 goals for the Club's Under-18 and Under-21 sides, as well as making his first team debut.

The 18-year-old's rapid progress was recognised at the Hammers' end of season awards dinner, when he collected the prestigious Academy Player of the Year prize.

It rounded off a fine season for the youngster, whose father Rob and brother Oliver also played for the Hammers, and he is keen to continue along the same upward curve over the coming years.

"I'm delighted with the award, I couldn't be happier," he beamed. "It caps off a great season, so to pick up the award is brilliant.

"I love scoring goals - I've ended up as the top goalscorer for the Under-21s so that's great, and winning any award gives you confidence.

"I just want to push on from here and see what I can do in pre-season to impress the first team.

"My mate Moncs [George Moncur] won the Young Hammer of the Year so hopefully I can take that one off him next year!"
