Shaka Starts For Reserves

SHAKA Hislop will make his first competitive start for the Hammers since returning to the Club as West Ham United Reserves take on Ipswich Town at Upton Park, kick-off 7.00pm.

Hislop is part of a Reserve team packed full of first-team experience to take on Town, with 10 of the starting line-up boasting experience of senior football.

In defence Shaun Newton, James Collins, Elliott Ward and Clive Clarke form a formidable back-line.
