FT- Exeter City U21 0-4 Dev Squad

FT: Exeter City U21 0-4 Dev Squad

That's the full time whistle and the young Hammers have done! A clinical and meticulous performance sees them record a 4-0 win over Exeter City. The hosts more then played their part in a highly entertaining game. 

90: Three minutes of time to be added on here. 

88: The Hammers will face either Fulham or Colchester in the Quarter-Final of the U21 Premier League Cup. They play on Tuesday 8 December, it'll be a home game whoever they face, the date is TBC. 

86: GOOOOAL!! Substiute Moses Makasi gets involved with the action with a wonderfully curled shot from the edge of the box. 4-0.

82: Jordan Brown is on for youngster Grady Diangana. 

80: GOOOAL! Djair Parfitt-Williams does well to run onto a long ball and finishes expertly! That should wrap things up and see the Dev Squad progress to the Quarter-Finals!

77: More excellent build up play, Cullen the orchestrator, Knoyle, Gordon and Parfitt-Williams all involved. Knoyle's whipped cross is cut out by Hamon rushing off his line. 

73: Lewis Page's cross almost catches James Hamon out in the Exeter goal! Whether he meant it or not is a different matter, but it nearly worked!

70: Manny Onariase replaces Reece Oxford. The young Hammers have twenty minutes to go before they are into the quarter-finals. 

66: Sam Howes makes a great save, he's working hard to keep his second clean sheet in three days. 

63: Fantastic run by Parfitt-Williams on the edge of the box, he beats three men and has Browne free in the six yard box. He tries to squeeze the ball through but the hosts recover to clear. Close!

60: Chance for Exeter as Jason Pope flashes a shot from the edge of the box narrowly wide. 

Fantastic passing move almost involves the entire squad yet it breaks down at the final ball, what a great goal that would've been!

54: Brilliant mazy run from Page takes him from the half-way line to the edge of the box, he feeds Gordon, looking his hat-trick, but the ball just gets away from him. 

Chance for the Grecians as Jay turns inside and beats two men, however his shot is blocked. Official attendance is 1,462 inside St. James Park tonight. 

46: We're back under way here in Exeter. Kyle Knoyle does well to get round the back of the defence but his pull back his cut out. Nichols bursts down the other side yet Oxford is there, again, to sweep up. 

45+1: Cullen skips past a couple of tackles before looking to play in Browne, unfortuately his pass has just too much on it and it goes out of play. 

43: Last few minutes of the half. Page receives some treatment but is fine to continue. Exeter are threatening on the counter while the Hammers are pushing for a third. 

39: More pressure from the hosts - they are far from out of this game. Watkins spins his man and is through on goal, he's just about to pull the trigger yet Chambers puts in an inch-perfect tackle to smoother the shot. Excellent defending. 

36: Corner to the hosts as Oxford's hooked clearance flies over his own goal, the cross is good but so is Gordon's defensive header, the forward is having a superb game tonight. 

33: Exeter forward Tom Nichols clearly has a bit about him and he looks the most likely to score. He's through on goal however a combination of Chambers and Dobson recover to clear the danger. 

31: Josh Cullen goes into the book for one foul too many, from the resulting free-kick Exeter really should've scored. Jamie Reid flings himself at Storey's knock down yet somehow it falls wide of the post. 

28: Parfitt-Williams tries to slip in Diangana but Riley-Lowe stops it with a vital interception. He would've been through on goal otherwise. 

26: Dobson picks out another cracking ball, this time for Page to run onto. His cross is eventually cut out at the second attempt. 

24: Alex Byrne's driven free-kick causes a small commotion in the area as Leo Chambers and Sam Howes get in each others' way, the ball is cleared for a corner which Chambers clears with a thumping header. 

20: Grecian defender Tom McCready is replaced by Jason Pope after the centre-back picked up a knock. 

17: Exeter skipper Matt Jay has a sight on goal and Sam Howes does well to collect a bobbling ball. He made it look more comfortable than it was. 

15: Ollie Watkins bursts forward but a strong challenge by Oxford clears the danger. 

11: GOOOAL for the Hammers! Jaanai Gordon gets his second of the evening with a stooping header to connect to Marcus Browne's fired cross. Excellent start. 2-0. 

10: Another superb ball forward by Dobson sets Parfitt-Williams free down the left wing. He tries to cut and shoot but his effort is blocked. 

8: George Dobson passes his way out of a tight gap and Oxford looks to play a defence-splitting pass in Gordon's direction. The pass just has too much on it and it runs through to goalkeeper Hamon. 

5: Another chance for the hosts as Oxford tackles Reid but the ball falls to Tom Nichols who shoots narrowly over. 

3: Exeter doing well to respond to the early setback. A lovely move is almost finished off by Jamie Reid who fires just wide of Sam Howes' near post. Excellent game so far. 

1: GOOOAL!! What a start for the Hammers! Marcus Browne and Djair Parfitt-Williams burst forward immediately and feed Jaanai Gordon who bursts into the box and fires expertly past James Hamon. 

6.55pm: Not long to go now, a very healthy crowd has come out to support youth football. Always good to see!

6.45pm: The Dev Squad are next in action at home on Monday 7 December. They host West Bromwich Albion at Rush Green, kick off is 7pm. All are encouraged to get down and support the future of West Ham!

6.15pm: Our hosts tonight, Exeter City have enjoyed their time in the Cup in recent years, and this season is certainly no different. The Grecians have won 6-0 against Southend and 1-0 against Peterborough at St James Park.
