Youths beaten at Spurs

West Ham United Under-18s ended their FA Premier Academy League season with a 4-1 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

The first half ended goalless, only for Group B leaders Spurs to score four second half goals against the Hammers, who now look destined to finish either fourth or fifth in Group A. Ahmed Abdulla netted a consolation for the visitors, but Tottenham eased to victory at Spurs Lodge in Chigwell.

Tony Carr's team completed their 28-match league campaign with ten wins, eight draws and ten defeats. West Ham's best results of the season came in the shape of a 6-1 win at Southampton in November, a 4-1 victory at Crystal Palace and a 5-0 thrashing of Bristol City at Little Heath on 24 April. The free-scoring Hammers notched 51 goals in 28 league games, conceding just 38.

Tottenham's victory keeps them top of Group B with two matches left to play.
