Lewis Page returned to east London on Saturday
  • A host of Hammers made appearances for their on-loan clubs this weekend
  • Reece Burke made his Wigan Athletic debut in the Championship on Saturday
  • Enner Valencia could make his Everton debut at Sunderland on Monday evening

Four West Ham United youngesters featured for their respective loan clubs in the English Football League over the weekend.

Reece Burke made his Wigan Athletic debut on Saturday when the Latics lost 2-1 at Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship. The 20-year-old centre-back completed the full 90 minutes as Fernando Forestieri scored a second-half winner to secure three points for the Owls. 

Kyle Knoyle is also on loan at Wigan, but did not feature in the defeat as he continues his recovery from injury.

After returning from duty with the Norway senior squad over the international break, Martin Samuelsen came on as a late substitute as Blackburn Rovers earned just their second point of the season with a 1-1 draw at Queens Park Rangers.

Tjaronn Chery gave Rangers the lead in their Championship clash at Loftus Road with an exquisite free-kick before Sam Gallagher netted a late equaliser to earn a valuable point for Rovers.
Josh Cullen played his part once again as Bradford City maintained their unbeaten start to their League One season with a 1-1 draw at Gillingham in League One. 

Cody McDonald scored early on for the Gills, but Jordy Hiwula-Mayifuila equalised for the Bantams at the Priestfield Stadium. Another Hammers loanee featured in the match – Josh Pask, who’s with Gillingham, came on as a late substitute for McDonald.

Also in League One, left-back Lewis Page played just over an hour for Coventry City as they drew 1-1 at Millwall, where Lions striker Aiden O’Brien cancelled out Marvin Sordell’s strike with 20 minutes to play. 

Elsewhere, George Dobson was an unused substitute as Walsall lost 2-0 away at Northampton Town.

Meanwhile, Luka Belic and Doneill Henry both did not feature for their new clubs. Belic’s Motherwell drew 1-1 at Ross County in the Scottish Premiership, while Henry’s new Danish side AC Horsens won 4-2 away at Viborg in the Super League.

Looking ahead, Enner Valencia could make his Everton debut on Monday evening when they face Sunderland in the Premier League, live on Sky Sports.
