Lee nets first senior goal

West Ham United youngster Elliot Lee notched his first senior goal in dramatic circumstances for his loan club Colchester United on Saturday.

Trailing 2-1 to Rotherham United at the New York Stadium as the game reached the fifth minute of stoppage time, Lee crashed a header against the underside of the crossbar and in, to rescue a point for the Sky Bet League One side.

Eighteen-year-old striker Lee has notched five goals for the Development Squad in the Barclays U21 Premier League this term and made his top-flight debut when he was introduced as a substitute against Stoke City in August.

Now he has taken his goalscoring talents to senior level, with his goal keeping Colchester 14th in the table.

Also on target at the weekend was Paul McCallum, who notched the first two goals of his loan spell at Torquay United as Alan Knill's men triumphed 3-1 at Bury in League Two.

The Gulls took an early lead at Gigg Lane through Aaron Downes, but Nathan Cameron soon equalised for the hosts.

However, McCallum then struck twice, heading home from a corner for his first, before slamming into the net following an Elliot Benyon cut back to seal the three points.

Meanwhile, Jordan Spence played the 90 minutes for Milton Keynes Dons as they recorded a 1-0 win over Walsall in League One.

The Dons currently sit just outside the play-off spots, a point and two positions below Bradford City in sixth.
