Hammers draw Hoops

West Ham United have been drawn at home to Queens Park Rangers in the FA Youth Cup fourth round.

The Hammers won through to the last-32 for the first time since 2006 by beating Plymouth Argyle 1-0 after extra time on Wednesday evening.

Republic of Ireland Under-17 forward Danny Purdy emerged from the substitutes bench to fire home the vital goal after 104 minutes.

Purdy's strike saw Tony Carr's side entered into Friday's draw, with the Hammers drawn to face their west London rivals at the Boleyn Ground on or before 16 January 2009.

West Ham have won the FA Youth Cup three times since its inception in 1953, lifting the trophy in 1963, 1981 and 1999, when the Hammers secured a record 9-0 aggregative victory over Coventry City in the final.

QPR, who have never reached the final of the competition, reached the fourth round courtesy of a 3-1 home victory over Southampton on Tuesday 8 December.
