Dev Squad head to Cambridge

West Ham United's Development Squad will take on a Cambridge United XI on Tuesday evening as part of the League Two side's centenary celebrations.

Development Squad boss Ian Hendon says it will be a proud occasion for his side as the hosts mark 100 years since their formation with the game at the Abbey Stadium.

"We got a call from Cambridge asking us to take a team there and we were delighted to say 'Yes.' The boys and I are looking forward to playing in a fantastic stadium where the pitch is always immaculate." Hendon said.

"To be part of their celebrations is an honour too. Hopefully we can go up there and give them a good, entertaining game of football."

The game away at Cambridge will mark the end of a busy season for Hendon and his squad, having played no less than 32 games. Hendon has been able to call on a mixture of experience and youth for his squad during the campaign and he has enjoyed working with every single one of them.

"It's been a great season with the squad. They are a bunch of really good lads and will have gained a lot of experience from playing with first-team players and against tough opponents.

"So now we need to go to Cambridge and finish the season on a high. The boys deserve a victory for all the hard work they have put in this season."

Hendon is likely to take a strong squad with a mixture of players with first-team experience and those who will graduate the West Ham Academy at the end of this season. The likes of Dan Potts, Rob Hall and goalkeeper Stephen Henderson may well be included.

The game on Tuesday evening will take place at Cambridge's R Costings Abbey Stadium with kick off scheduled for 7pm. If you would like to go and show your support for the Hammers, tickets will be available on the door, priced at £10. will have full post-match reaction after the game.
