Double delight for Montano

West Ham United Under-18s 5-0 Bristol City Under-18s

Cristian Montano scored twice to top off a polished performance by the Under-18s in an inter-group FA Academy League encounter on Friday.

The Colombian-born attacker opened the scoring before Georg Grasser, the Austrian Under-19 international midfielder, added to the advantage before the interval. The second half was dominated by the home team with Danny Kearns, Montano again and Anthony Edgar all finding the target for the young Hammers.

Tony Carr said: "We had a lot of players back because the reserve season has endeded. Some played, some got a half and we were also able to rest the likes of Ollie Lee. It was a resounding win in the end. We could have won by a lot more but it was a resounding win and a lot closer in the first half than it was in the second.

"Once we got the third it was a question of how many we were going to score. We had plenty of chances on what was not the easiest of days. It was sunny but very windy. We have got Fulham now on Tuesday and Spurs away on Saturday so we are hoping to keep a winning run until the end of the season."
