Sadlier delighted with Euro win

West Ham United Development Squad midfielder Kieran Sadlier was delighted to score the winner in a fantastic 2-1 win over Jong PSV in the Premier League International Cup at the Boleyn Ground on Wednesday.

The Hammers went a goal down after just three minutes yet they rallied with excellent goals first from Kieran Bywater firing into the top corner before Kieran Sadlier slotted the winner just after half time.

The win gives the Hammers a good chance of progressing to the knock out stage of the competition when they face Fulham at Rush Green early in the New Year.

Speaking after the game, Sadlier said: "It was good to score, I haven't had many goals this season. I'd like to give Ben Marlow and Seb Lletget credit for getting in there. Ben did well in his first game back to get in there and force a mistake and then Seb's played a lovely ball through, I just had to finish it.

"It was good to win because we haven't had the greatest results recently. I think in some cases we've been hard done by so it was nice to go out there and get a win against a team who beat us convincingly last time."

Sadlier, who only yesterday returned from international duty with the Republic of Ireland U21s, praised his teammates for what was a fantastic all round performance.

"Everybody worked hard, it was a gritty performance and we can be very proud with ourselves that we fought and dug in. After we went 1-0 down you're thinking it could go bad here but we turned it around and we should be proud of that.

"I've just got back from a training camp in Marbella. We played against the USA and Russia so that was a good experience. It was a team bonding trip before out campaign starts in May and June next year.

"The win will give everybody confidence ahead of the game against Millwall which will be another game. Everybody wants to win that game because of the rivalry."

The Development Squad's next game is against Millwall in the FA Youth Cup on Tuesday 25 November 2014 at Rush Green. Please note this match will be held behind closed doors.
