Thurrock test on Saturday

Kevin Keen could have at least a couple of first teamers on view when a West Ham United XI travel to Thurrock FC on Saturday afternoon for a pre-season friendly.

The reserve-team coach enjoyed a successful day last Saturday with a 1-0 win at Billericay when Zavon Hines scored the winner from the penalty spot. All those involved today will not have taken part in the club's pre-season tour of North America which concluded on Thursday night and then saw the 22-man squad arrive back at Heathrow on Saturday morning. The game - at Thurrock FC, Ship Lane, Grays, Essex - will kick-off at 3pm. will have a full report and reaction to come.
