Two Defeats

West Ham United's under-17s and under-19s both suffered FA Premier Youth Academy defeats at the hands of Arsenal on Saturday.

"There was not a lot between the teams," says Tony Carr of the under-19s' 3-1 loss, "but we had a goal harshly disallowed and they capitalised on our errors.

"It wasn't too disappointing a performance."

James Allen scored the Hammers' consolation goal.

As for the under-17s, who lost 1-0, Peter Brabrook admits: "We weren't particularly good and we missed three or four open goals.

"They were a lot sharper."

Under-17s: G.Sealey, McClenahan, Fletcher, Ward, Lumsden, Morris, Carrick, Saunders, Akinsete, Miller Pearson. Unused subs: Cole, Bunce, Parrington, Tucker, Cohen.
