In Pictures: West Ham stars visit Lycamobile Cup
West Ham United first team players headed to Beckton as Lycamobile and the West Ham United Foundation came together to launch the 2018 Lycamobile Cup - the sixth year of the community youth football competition.
The opening tournament – the first of the qualifying round stage - took place at West Ham’s community hub in Beckton, and was attended by Michail Antonio, Lukasz Fabianski, Pedro Obiang and Grady Diangana, as well as rising stars from the West Ham United Academy, who acted as referees.
The Lycamobile Cup involves young players from local secondary schools and community centres, who compete in a series of tournaments over the course of the season, before a finals day at the London Marathon Community Track, next door to London Stadium.
Progressing from Tuesday's tournament were Under-12s winners Brampton Manor Academy and runners-up St Bonaventure's RC Secondary. In the Under-14s category, Langdon Academy took the honours with Kingsford Community School in second.
