U18s go top of the table

West Ham United went top of the Barclays U18 Premier League following a 2-0 win at leaders Fulham on Saturday.

The Hammers made it five wins in a row and nine in ten league matches with a deserved victory at Motspur Park.

Jordan Brown continued his impressive recent run of form with the opening goal before half-time. Bermuda-born winger Djair Parfitt-Williams (pictured) then added a second on the hour-mark to complete a fine day's work for Steve Potts' side.

West Ham have lost just one of their previous 16 league matches and now sit three points clear of Fulham and Tottenham Hotspur, whose Saturday fixture with Arsenal was postponed.

After a free weekend, the Hammers return to action on Saturday 8 March, when they travel to London Colney to take on Arsenal.

U18s: Howes, Pask (Gordon 60, Bailey 89), Harney, Onariase, Burke, Nasha, Makasi, Diangana (Amoo 46), Bywater, Parfitt-Williams, J.Brown
