U18s overcome Baggies

Steve Potts' West Ham United youngsters scored a fine 2-1 Barclays U18 Premier League win at West Bromwich Albion.

Kieran Bywater's late free-kick proved decisive after the Baggies had equalised Djair Parfitt-Williams' first-half opener, lifting West Ham to their second successive victory.

Having previously defeated Manchester United and Liverpool on home soil, Potts' team picked up their maiden away success of 2013/14 with another promising performance.

Livewire attacker Parfitt-Williams opened the scoring with a curling shot into the corner seven minutes before half-time, giving West Ham a deserved lead at the break.

West Brom levelled matters after half-time, but the Hammers were not to be denied. Bywater had already been denied by one outstanding save from the home goalkeeper before settling matters in added-time when his set piece deflected off the wall and into the net.

The U18s return to action at Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday 12 October, with kick-off at Hotspur Way at 12noon.

U18s: Howes, Knoyle, Page, Harney, Burke, Cullen, Makasi, Bywater, Parfitt-Williams, Mavila (Amoo 73), Brown (Martins 73)
Subs not used: Nemrava, Girdlestone, Onariase
