Dev Squad crowned Cup Champions

Hull City U21 (1) v (1) Dev Squad (West Ham win 5-3 on penalties)

It was tough for the Hammers who conceded a cruel 93rd minute goal to take the tie to extra time, but they kept battling and eventually their quality told in the shootout. Well done to Terry Westley and his squad! 

PENS: Marcus Browne, Reece Oxford, Sam Byram, Stephen Hendrie and Martin Samuelsen were all successful as Raphael Spiegel saved from Hull's Daniel Batty. The Hammers are Champions!

FT: Extra time is over, and it's finished 1-0 on the night here. Penalties it is!

118: Superb strike by Hendrie! The keeper does well to get something on it and it goes for a corner, which Hull eventually clear.

116: Booking for Marcus Brown. Hull's free-kick comes to nothing.

110: Doneil Henry's knock down is good but there are no Claret and Blue shirts who can get on the end of it.

109: Free-kick for West Ham 35 yards from goal. Marcus Browne is going to swing this one in...

107: Hull City swing in a deep free-kick but Raphael Spiegel deals with it comfortably. He's had a great match this evening, and surely would be confident in a penalty shootout...

HT: The half time whistle sounds and the sides have a quick chat before switching ends. 15 minutes remaining...are we going to see another late twist or will it head to a penalty shootout?

103: A Hull City player receives treatment as the players re-gather their thoughts. Not long 'til the half-time break here, which will be an immediate turnaround. One minute of added time is signalled.

100: Jahmal Hector-Ingram - scorer of the Development Squad's last away goal - replaces Declan Rice.

98: Slight confusion between Henry and Spiegel but the balls bounces just wide for a corner kick to Hull City.

96: It comes to nothing as Samuelsen's cross is cleared.

95: The game has calmed slightly and West Ham are looking to once againt exert their authority on this one. Free kick from the left-hand-side 25 yards from goal.

91: We're back underway in extra time of this final. Some feisty challenges are flying in but it remains 1-1 on aggregate.

Extra-time: Terry Westley conducts a short team talk on the pitch before we get underway for another 30 minutes in this final.

93: GOAL for Hull. West Ham can't believe it as Will Annan smashes one into the top corner in the last minute. So, so cruel on the visitors. It looks like we're heading for extra time.

91: One last Bubbles rendition sounds around the KC. In fact, if it stays 0-0, it certainly won't be the last of the evening...The Hammers are almost there!

90: Alex Pike steams in at the back post but heads just wide. Three minutes added time!

89: Spiegel is dealing with all the long balls thrown at him here. Terrific command of his penalty area. He hasn't put a foot (or hand) wrong in this one.

87: West Ham defend a corner well in the dying minutes. Hull are doing their best to put the visitors under pressure here!

85: Five minutes to go! The Hammers are trying to slow the proceedings down...

78: Excellent combo down the left flank between Page and Hendrie which allows Page to swing in a dangerous ball infront of Alex Pike, usually a right-back, seems to be playing up-front!

75: Fifteen minutes to go! Not long now, can the Hammers hold their nerve? They've been away several times but called back for offside!

70: WHAT. A. SAVE! Rafa Spiegel take a bow. Hinchcliffe thinks he scored, everyone inside the KC did however the big Swiss lunges to his right to pluck the ball out of the air just as the striker's header seemed destined for the top corner. 

68: Terry Westley makes the first changes of the night as Grady Diangana and Djair Parfitt-Williams is replaced by Stephen Hendrie and Alex Pike. 

66: The Tigers thought they had made the breakthrough there! Ben Hinchcliffe made a sneaky run into the box and was nailed on to equalise however the linesman had already flagged for offside!

63: Hull are increasingly turning up the pressure. Browne and Lenihan have a small coming together which has really got the crowd fired up. 

59: Reece Oxford is the third Hammer to go into the book, it looked like he knicked the ball first but the yellow card is out. 

57: Chance for Hull as Olley climbs highest at the back post yet he heads Lenihan's hanging cross over the bar. 

55: Burst forward by Samuelsen opens the space for Browne he winds one up from 25 yards, catches it well but Watson is equal to it. 

53: Corner to the Hammers which Browne takes quickly to Page, he floats a delicious ball toward Henry yet captain Max Clark does well to get his head to it and clears. 

51: Hull attack down the right wing through Will Annan, he gets his head up and plays it into the area however Spiegel is alert and claims it well. 

48: How close can you get?! Lewis Page does superbly to get round the back of the defence and he pulls it back to Browne who fires over! 

46: Here we go! Marcus Browne and Martin Samuelsen get us back underway. A huge 45 minutes ahead...

HT: Half-time here at the KC Stadium, the Hammers are 45 minutes away from being crowned champions! Still a long way to go however...

44: One minute of time to be added on, a good game so far but no goals!

42: Parfitt-Williams goes close to netting the almost important goal, this time he hits the post! So unlucky, he's livid with himself. Sam Byram is booked. 

39: Centre-back Harvey Rodgers goes into the book for a late challenge on Makasi, the temperature is rising!

36: Further pressure from the hosts. Henry does well to get two blocks in before Oxford swings a boot and clears. Hull, knowing they need a goal are really going for it! 

33: Doneil Henry goes into the referee's book for a tug, Spiegel saves the shot with minimum fuss. 

31: End to end stuff here! Browne delievers a wonderful ball into the box, Oxford chests before trying to bend it into the top corner, it's deflected and falls to Diangana who fires over from just outside the six-yard box.  

29: Chance for the hosts as Olley spins his marker before feeding Hinchcliffe who fires narrowly wide. That was a bit too close for comfort!

26: Best moment of the game, and it comes from Martin Samuelsen. Diangana's dummy sells the whole Hull team and Samuelsen is free down the right wing. He cuts in, jinks past two players before shooting, drawing Watson into a smart save. 

Free-kick to West Ham, Marcus Browne to take...and it is straight into the wall. Ben Clappison goes into the book. 

20: Moses Makasi executes another great tackle, he started well so far tonight, real energy!

17: Terry Westley has named a very attacking side tonight, with an almost six defensive - four attack minded formation. Browne, Parfitt-Williams, Diangana and Samuelsen are all tearing forward at every opportunity, while Makasi and Rice are anchoring the midfield.  

14: The Hammers are growing into the game, this time Parfitt-Williams looks to latch onto a through-ball. Tigers 'keeper Rory Watson comes sprinting out of his area and just gets there in the knick of time. 

11: Marcus Browne sprays a lovely ball out wide in search of Lewis Page, the left back beats his man and crosses it into the six yard box. Browne and Samuelsen are ready to pounce but Hull clear their lines. 

9: Oxford comes through with a well timed sliding challenge to clear the danger with Bowen looking to burst through. 

7: Doneil Henry mops up well, chasing down a loose ball and heading home to Spiegel - he made it look easier then it was as he was under pressure. 

5: Tonight also sees a personal battle for the golden boot. Both Djair Parfitt-Williams - scorer in the first leg, and the Tiger's Olley are currently joint top scorers with five throughout this year's competition. Who shall prevail?

3: Bright start from Hull as they go on the offensive. Striker Greg Olley comes close to closing Raphael Spiegel down before Reece Oxford bursts from the back and carries the ball a good 40 yards up the pitch. 

1: We're off! Hosts Hull get us under way, kicking right to left in the opening half. The Hammers are in their traditional claret and blue. COYI!

6.59pm: A massive shout out to all the fans who have made the journey north! A very healthy claret and blue following indeed tonight! Here's hoping they go home with something to celebrate!

6:45pm: First team full-back Sam Byram starts for the Dev Squad this evening alongisde influential captain Reece Oxford, while Parfitt-Williams returns to the starting XI after recovering from an injury to score last week's only goal as substitute.

We're just 15 minutes away from kick-off at a sunny KC Stadium in Hull. Come on you Irons!

6:30pm: It's been a long journey in the U21 Premier League Cup for Terry Westley's side. They've seen off Exeter City, Fulham, Blackburn Rovers and Liverpool to reach the two-legged final, and last week's result puts them in a great position.

The Tigers were stern opposition at the Boleyn however, and West Ham know they were taken right to the wire until top scorer Parfitt-Williams' winner. Can they cap off a terrific campaign by coming out on top against tonight's hosts?

6:15pm: The Hammers are of course 1-0 up from last week's first leg at the Boleyn Ground. Djair Parfitt-Williams was the late hero for the Irons, and here's a reminder of all the action.

Starting XI: Spiegel, Byram, Page, Rice (Hector-Ingram 100), Henry, Oxford (c), Diangana (Hendrie 68), Makasia, Samuelsen, Browne, Parfitt-Williams (Pike 68). 
Subs: Howes, Dobson.

Hull City: Watson, Lenihan, Tymon, Clark (c), Rodgers, Clappison, Annan, McKenzie, Hinchliffe, Olley, Bowen.
Subs: Saltmer, Ter Horst, Clackstone, Batty, Hamilton.
