On This Day: Academy duo strike to down Black Cats


Take a look back at a classic West Ham United moment on this day in history, in association with Basset & Gold...

It was a moment to remember for the West Ham United Academy a decade ago today, as two homegrown products got on the scoresheet to secure a 2-0 home win against Sunderland.

Junior Stanislas got the ball rolling with his 42nd minute opener, before defender James Tomkins doubled the advantage early in the second period.

With Mark Noble also starting, it was another fine example of the Hammers' tradition on bringing young players through.
