Hammers youngsters in FA Youth Cup action this evening

The FA Youth Cup trophy

West Ham United's Under-18s get their FA Youth Cup campaign underway on Monday evening with a home third round tie against Brighton & Hove Albion.

Jack Collison and Mark Phillips' side take on the Seagulls at the home of Dagenham & Redbridge with kick-off set for 7pm.

Tickets are priced at just £3 adults and £1 concessions and will be available on the gate at Chigwell Construction Stadium.

The Hammers are in the same Premier League U18 South division as their third round opponents, but have yet to face them this term.

West Ham are currently sixth in the twelve-team league, while Brighton are four places and six points behind.
