Gallery - Hammers touchdown in Cork

West Ham United have arrived for a training camp in Cork as preparations for next week’s UEFA Europa League first qualifying round tie with FC Lusitans begin in earnest.

The Hammers will welcome the Andorran runners-up to the Boleyn Ground on next Thursday as they welcome back continental competition for the first time since 2006.

With the first leg just a week-and-a-half away, the squad will prepare in Ireland, where they enjoyed a successful training camp two seasons ago.

After arriving at Cork at lunchtime, the players headed to the base for their training camp before putting their boots on for an afternoon training session.

Our photographer was on hand to capture the training session and you can see the pics below.
