Benjamin Heal was recruited by West Ham United from Cambridge City's youth set-up in 2016.
The diminutive but diligent defender was recommended to the Hammers by the Lilywhites and shortly afterwards impressed on a trial, winning himself a scholarship at the Academy of Football.
His first appearance in the U18 Premier League came on 21 September 2019, when he started the Hammers' 4-1 win over Norwich at Little Heath.
