Hammers win in Hong Kong!

The Development Squad completed an amazing weekend for West Ham United by winning the Plate Competition at the Hong Kong FC Citibank International Soccer Sevens.

Just hours after watching the first team gain promotion to the Barclays Premier League by defeating Blackpool on TV, Ian Hendon's side defeated the host club 3-0 in Sunday's Plate final.

In a game that saw the Hammers play some excellent football, youngsters George Moncur, Olly Lee (pictured) and Brian Montenegro all hit the target to help the club collect their second piece of silverware in the space of 24 hours.

On Saturday, while Big Sam's men were doing their bit at Wembley, the Hammers began the two-day competition in the group stage, where they lost 1-0 to a strong Leicester City side before defeating future final opponents Hong Kong FC 3-0 with goals from Lee, Moncur and Rob Hall and drawing 1-1 with Celtic thanks to Blair Turgott's long-range effort.

On Sunday, the players recovered from their late night viewing by beating Hong Kong Dragons 3-0 in the Plate quarter-final, with Montenegro netting twice and Callum Driver once to cap a convincing victory.

The Plate semi-final saw West Ham paired with 2011 champions Kitchee FC. Again, Hendon's team dominated with Lee scoring before providing an assist for Montenegro.
