Reserves aim to sign off in style

Steve Lomas will take his reserves to face Wolverhampton Wanderers on Wednesday night looking to sign off the 2010/11 Barclays Premier Reserve League South season on a positive note.

The Hammers have stumbled of late, without a win in the last four matches, although Lomas has had to shuffle his pack repeatedly to accommodate first-teamers looking for much-needed game time. Chief among them has been Jack Collison who should get his fourth run-out in as many weeks at AFC Telford United's home ground. will have full text coverage as usual from 6pm ahead of the 7pm kick-off at the New Bucks Head Stadium.

As well as the likes of Collison, youngsters will continue to be blooded - including possibly Republic of Ireland Under-19 midfielder Eoin Wearen, who has returned to the club on a high after a successful international tournament in Cyprus.

Wearen is relishing the chance to show what he can do at this level again, having linked up with Collison to good effect a fortnight ago in the goalless draw with Aston Villa.

"It's always nice to have senior players in the side," he said. "It makes you feel comfortable and then you can play and obviously confident that you can win the game. People like Jack Collison are really supportive to you. I really enjoyed playing with him.

"He looked really sharp, he's going to be back to his best in no time and obviously he's looking forward. He will be a big plus to the club when he gets back judging on tonight's performance.

"I'm hoping to get a good run of games now towards the end of the season. I've got the European Championships coming up with Ireland so I want to stay nice and fit for that.

Wearen is certainly eager to play his part for the Irish in the UEFA European U19 Championship Elite round when it starts in Poland on 24 May. As well as meeting the mini-tournament hosts on the first day, Ireland will take on Ukraine two days later and then Italy on 29 May.

"It is a group that contains, us, Italy, Poland and Ukraine so it's anybody group although only one team goes through. We are confident we've got the squad to go and maybe cause an upset."
