Ahmed Abdulla

Born in Saudi Arabia, Ahmed Abdullah joined West Ham United after being released by Arsenal in the summer of 2008. A skilful, elusive forward, Abdullah was born on 12 November 1991.

Having arrived at Little Heath, the young forward from the Middle East caught the eye by scoring five goals in 23 league and cup appearances for Tony Carr's Under-18s in the 2008/09 season. He also turned out three times in the Barclays Premier Reserve League South, completing a full 90 minutes in a memorable 1-0 win at former club Arsenal in March.
