At London Colney, the Hammers were indebted to Finlay Herrick who kept Arsenal at bay with a string of saves throughout the fixture. He made a good stop to deny Osman Kamari early on, although the hosts took the lead with their next attack. Daniel Oyetunde found the net with 18 minutes played, slotting the ball past the on-rushing Herrick, with a neat touch, before tapping home the opener into an empty net. 

Arsenal would soon double their lead when Louie Copley struck from the edge of the area. Herrick, at full stretch, could not keep the effort from finding the top corner. 

Arsenal pushed for a third and looked to set to find one if Mayers had not intervened, recovering well, with a well-timed challenged to deter the Arsenal No9. He later found space behind once more but was fettered by another good stop by Herrick. Uwandji also struck over on the half-volley, while Ajala had another half-chance to get his shot away in the second half after a good press from the Hammers. West Ham unable to find a way back into the fixture following two first goals from the Gunners however, and the points stayed in north London.

West Ham United U18s secured their first U18 Premier League South victory of the season after a dominant 3-0 victory over Fulham.

The Hammers were a constant threat right from the start and both Favour Fawunmi and Jerry Umolu forced Dino Kaiser into impressive saves in the opening exchanges. After a dominant start, Kevin Keen’s youthful side were eventually rewarded with ten minutes remaining in the first half.

Umolu demonstrated his composure, tucking a penalty kick into the bottom left corner after a mistimed challenge on Fawunmi. Ryan Battrum then powerfully headed the ball across the goal and into the far corner to give the hosts a two-goal lead before the interval.

The Irons continued to dominate after the break, with Fawunmi and Blaise Uwandji striking narrowly wide before the visitors conceded a second penalty. Joshua Ajala then stepped up and whipped the ball into the bottom left corner to round off an excellent and victorious day for the young Hammers.

West Ham United U18s began their U18 Premier League Cup campaign with a hard-fought 1-1 draw at Arsenal.

Both outfits threatened the opening goal as Arsenal’s Chidoze Chi smashed a low strike into the side netting, while Jethro Medine was later denied by the offside flag. Arsenal continued to threaten in the first half, as Osman Kamara forced Finlay Herrick into an impressive low stop, although Jemiah Umolu also saw his strike denied by the feet of Alexi Rojas.

With both sides battling for an opener, the Irons saw Herrick shown a straight red card shortly after the interval as a result of a late challenge on the edge of the 18-yard box.

With no goalkeeper on the bench, Kevin Keen had no choice but to turn to forward Liam Jones, who was unable to deny Harrison Dudziak from opening the scoring for the Gunners.

The West Ham response was emphatic and impressive, however, as Joshua Ajala ran in behind the Arsenal back line and salvaged a draw with a venomous effort into the bottom left corner. Despite the Gunners man advantage, West Ham would come the closest to winning their first fixture of the Premier League Cup campaign.

Dan Rigge saw his effort fly wide of the post late on, as the Irons settled for a valiant point as oppose to a brilliant three.

Joshua Ajala’s brace saw West Ham United U18s secure a stunning 5-2 win over Aston Villa.

The 16-year-old was in imperious form turning in the Club’s second and third in an incredible afternoon that moved Kevin Keen’s men to unbeaten in three matches in all competitions.

The Irons’ second victory of the season was set in motion by striker Jemiah Umolu, who got the ball rolling when he found the bottom right corner with a neat swish of his left foot on 18 minutes. His effort was followed by Ajala’s brace. His fourth goal in his last three matches saw the young Hammers into a 3-0 lead in 40 minutes. 

Aston Villa did pull a goal back on the stroke of half-time through Luka Lynch but any jeopardy around the result was quickly forgotten when Dan Rigge found Favour Fawunmi, who netted the Irons fourth 23 minutes after the restart.

Rigge later found the net himself as his penalty would round off the win after Villa scored a second through Abube Onuchukwu with three minutes to play. And as a result, the Hammers, with six points from their first three league games, move third in the U18 Premier League South Division table, with both of the top two – Fulham and Crystal Palace – to have played one game more.

Jerry Umolu scored either side of half-time to give the Irons the lead before Dan Rigge put the result beyond all doubt with 72 minutes played. 

The Hammers were keen to make a fast start at The Amex Elite Football Performance Centre and Josh Ajala almost opened the scoring inside five minutes. The striker forced Lorenz Ferdinand into an outstanding early save and Josh Briggs also saw his strike deflect narrowly over the crossbar moments later. Despite the Irons’ fast start, Brighton opened the scoring. Zane Albarus poked the ball into the bottom left corner after a scramble in the penalty area. The Hammers looked for a response and Ajala saw another effort tipped behind for a corner before Ezra Mayers made a goal saving challenge midway through the first half.

Pushing forwards, the U18s were finally rewarded at the end of the first half when Umolu raced onto a long pass and drilled the ball into the bottom right corner from the edge of the box. Umolu then put the visitors in front after the interval. The striker impressively smashed the ball past Ferdinand and into the back of the net to secure his brace. Fin Herrick was called into action to deny Aidan West before Umolu and Dan Rigge both saw their efforts bounce off the post. But the Irons got an important third when Rigge found the back of the net with just under 20 minutes remaining.

Goals from Emeka Adiele and Daniel Rigge saw West Ham United U18s beat Norwich City U18s and extend a winning run to four games in U18 Premier League South Division.

A valuable three points – and a stunning performance too – saw the young Hammers move second in the table, with 12 points from their first five league games.

Unbeaten in five matches in all competitions, the U18s saw Emeka Adiele open the scoring showing composure to find the top corner with a placed first-time effort from the edge of the area. His first goal of the season put the Hammers ahead after just six minutes.

The Irons made their early start count too and scored a second just four minutes later. Jemiah Umolu flicked the ball effortlessly over his man and played a neat through ball to Daniel Rigge.

The attacking midfielder took a touch before he found the near bottom corner from inside the area.

Chances continued to flow for the Hammers but the two-goal cushion – one secured inside ten minutes, alongside a resolute defensive display – was enough for a victory.

Despite Josh Briggs’ early goal for the Hammers, Southampton led at the break after two quick goals midway through the first half. 

Still, Keen’s side responded well after the break and equalised through Jerry Umolu but, in the end, had to settle for one point, even after a dominant second-half display.

The Hammers started on the front foot on the south coast and took a deserved lead after eleven minutes. Liam Jones’ dangerous corner found Briggs at the back post and the centre back directed the ball into the roof of the net.

But the Saints responded immediately and Alejandro Gomes unselfishly squared the ball to Nicholas Oyekunle, who tapped the ball into the bottom left corner from close range.

The hosts then took the lead after 26 minutes. Jay Robinson pounced on a misplaced pass and slid the ball through to Oyekunle who secured his brace, slotting the ball pass Herrick and into the bottom corner.

But Kevin Keen’s Irons found an equaliser midway through the second half after Umolu raced onto a poor back pass before calmly placing the ball into the bottom left corner.

Following Dan Rigge’s incredible long-range strike, which settled the tie at Rush Green Stadium, the young Hammers occupy the top spot.

It was a difficult start for the hosts, goalkeeper Herrick was called into action twice in the opening ten minutes and denied Lennon Wheeldon twice from the edge of the box.

In response, the Hammers’ first big opportunity came with 15 minutes played when Josh Ajala side-footed the ball over the crossbar after Elisha Sowunmi’s neat cutback.

Both sides then had further chances to open the scoring midway through the first half as Ajala forced Harley Price into another save, before Derby’s Farren Simons placed his effort wide of the post.

After an action-packed but ultimately goalless first half, the visitors struck immediately after the interval when Wheeldon found space down the left flank, cut inside, and curled the ball into the top left corner.

But the West Ham response was emphatic as Ajala smartly intercepted a defensive error before he slotted the ball into the bottom right corner to level the scores.

With the match in the balance, Rigge produced a moment of supreme quality with 67 minutes on the clock.

The attacking midfielder was well-placed to intercept Price’s clearance, lob the Derby goalkeeper with a first-time strike from 30 yards, and seal the three points.

Lauris Coggin has challenged West Ham United U18s to bounce back as their five-game unbeaten run in the league came to an end at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

The young Hammers fell to a 2-0 defeat at West Brom’s training ground, with Divine Onyemachi and Eseosa Sule on the scoresheet for the hosts.

Coggin, assistant coach to Kevin Keen for the U18s, was quickly focused on how the Hammers can get back to winning ways when they play Reading on Saturday 11 November.

He reflected on the match in the Midlands and wants this talented group of players to attack the next week on the training ground to return to their early season form next time out!

West Ham United U18s bounced back from defeat last time out as the young Hammers hit Reading for five on Saturday morning.

Jerry Umolu opened the scoring in a cagey first half with a superb strike, before the game exploded into life at the start of the second half.

Reading pulled one back after Umolu doubled his tally after the break, but three goals in four minutes saw Kevin Keen’s side race into a four-goal advantage and up to third in the U18 Premier League South division, with a game in hand on sides around them.

Lewis Orford and Ollie Scarles combined to see the Hammers open the scoring on 26 minutes when Orford found the net after Scarles won the ball in midfield. Favour Fawunmi then added the second on the stroke of half-time - with a stunning volley - to see West Ham into a 2-0 lead.

In the second half, the U18s showed their class to take all three points, producing a clinical attacking display. Orford was again involved, although this time the provider, as Ezra Mayers poked home his wicked free-kick, before Fawunmi added his second of the match and finished a neat move to make it 4-0 to West Ham with 55 minutes played.

Dan Rigge then hit the bar as West Ham proved too strong for their opponents. And while the hosts would net a consolation goal through Ajay Matthews on the hour, Jemiah Umolu’s penalty, ten minutes from time, sealed a stunning win and a place in the knockouts.

The young Hammers were on red-hot form despite the bitter conditions and saw Jerry Umolu and Liam Jones put Kevin Keen's side two goals ahead.

Two further goals in eight minutes at the start of the second half saw Umolu score his first hat-trick of the season, before Tyron Akpata’s late strike rounded off a superb day for the U18s.

West Ham shot stopper Herrick passed his first test superbly, reacting quickly to deny Reece Evans from close range.

His save allowed the Hammers took the lead though Umolu after fourteen minutes. 

Jones then doubled the hosts’ lead midway through the first half. The left-wing-back's long range strike had too much power for the Foxes' goalkeeper Harry French, who was unable to keep the ball out of the net.

Favour Fawunmi saw his powerful effort rebound off the crossbar and Elisha Sowanmi forced the keeper into an impressive stop before Umolu nodded the ball into the net on the rebound.

And Umolu would secure the match ball just after the hour mark. The No9 powerfully ran down the line before cutting in and curling the ball into the bottom left corner.

Akpata rounded off a five star performance at the death, slotting the ball into the bottom right corner, leaving French with no chance.

West Ham United U18s saw a dramatic penalty shootout book a place in the FA Youth Cup fourth round. On a bitterly cold evening at Rush Green Stadium, an enthralling tie twisted and turned its way through 90 minutes, extra-time and finally a shootout.

Southampton started the brightest of the two sides and deservedly took the lead through Jay Robinson on 43 minutes.

But the Hammers showed immense quality and character to overturn the lead in the second half, as Favour Fawunmi, introduced at the break, struck the equaliser. Ollie Scarles and Lewis Orford, who both featured as the U21s booked their place in the Bristol Street Motors Trophy last 16, played their part. The two combined before Fawumni volleyed home on 49 minutes.

Chances came and went for both sides with West Ham United indebted to a string of stunning saves from Finlay Herrick and an impressive showing from U16 Airidas Golambeckis to reach the shootout.

But here the Hammers stood the tallest, as Orford, Scarles, Liam Jones, and Josh Briggs all found the net in style from 12 yards, while Herrick made a superb save diving to his right to deny Aston Daley.

West Ham United U18s concluded 2023 with a memorable 4-2 win over U18 Premier League South Division leaders Tottenham Hotspur.

The Irons showed great character to respond to a first-half strike from Callum Olusesi as four goals in the second 45 minutes took a huge three points.

Elisha Sowunmi found the net from close range to start the comeback, before Liam Jones struck with his first touch to make it 2-1. Spurs would draw level thanks to Damola Ajayi, although the Hammers struck twice more to move within touching distance of the leaders.

Another substitute Jerry Umolu found Sowunmi after a stunning pass forward from Dan Rigge set the Hammers’ attack in motion.

A late bit of chaos from an in-swinging Jones corner saw Mehmet Halim head home from close range to cap his return to action in style and secure a deserved victory.

The young Hammers picked up their seventh win in ten league games and move two points behind Spurs, with a game in hand.

West Ham United U18s moved top after winning a nine-goal thriller against Crystal Palace U18s. Jerry Umolu eventually decided the Hammers’ eleventh league fixture of the season with a well-converted spot-kick in additional time.

The striker’s effort came after eight goals were equally shared in an enthralling 90 minutes. Kevin Keen's outfit struck last though and held on to leapfrog Tottenham Hotspur into first.

Jethro Medine opened the scoring on seven minutes for the Hammers when he converted a pass from Elisha Sowunmi. The Irons then needed Dan Rigge’s neat finish to pull level by the break after a brace from Crystal Palace’s Zach Marsh, although the drama had just begun.

Palace's Marsh completed his hat-trick three minutes into the second half, before the three second-half substitutes, Liam Jones, Favour Fawunmi, and Jerry Umolu made their mark. Jones and Fawunmi both struck from inside the area to put the Hammers ahead for the second time in the match. But after George King looked to have snatched a point for the visitors, Umolu’s spot-kick, won by a swashbuckling run from Emeka Adeile, secured West Ham’s eighth league win of the season.

West Ham United U18s’ FA Youth Cup campaign came to an end as Manchester City edged a tense fourth-round tie 2-0 at Rush Green Stadium. 

The Hammers, who lifted the competition’s trophy last season, were unable to follow their heroics against Southampton in round three, as they eventually succumbed to a narrow defeat on Friday evening.  Lewis Orford hit the bar as the hosts had chances to find the net before a gripping battle between two top youth sides went to extra-time following a goalless first 90 minutes. 

A Jacob Wright penalty then put Manchester City ahead midway through the first half of extra-time, with Ezra Mayers harshly judged to have committed a foul after City hit the post. Justin Oboavwoduo doubled the visitors’ lead a few minutes later, with a well-struck finish that found its way past Finlay Herrick at the near post.

Kevin Keen’s side, who sit top of the U18 Premier League South Division, had opportunities to set up a nervy ending as Orford saw his header well saved by True Grant late on. But the Irons could not find their way back into the fixture and saw their FA Youth Cup defence end at the hands of last year’s semi-finalists - and three-time winners - Manchester City.

There were plenty of plaudits from assistant coach Lauris Coggin as West Ham United returned to the top of the U18 Premier League South Division following a comprehensive 3-0 win over Reading.

A Josh Ajala brace, taking his season-tally in the league to six goals, would grab the headlines in the young Irons’ ninth league win of the season.

Responding well to their FA Youth Cup setback last time out, first-year scholar Emeka Adiele was also on the scoresheet as the Hammers swept past the visiting Royals. 

Consecutive league wins to start 2024 saw the U18s leapfrog Tottenham Hotspur and lead the pack, with their 12 games played one game less than their North London rivals in second.

Coggin was delighted to see the U18s move to the top of the table and challenged his side to keep their levels high ahead of a Premier League Cup quarter-final away to Manchester City on Saturday 3 February.

A youthful Hammers’ side battled hard throughout an even 90 minutes, although the hosts would progress to the last four, despite a late goal from Mehmet Halim. 

Kevin Keen’s outfit beat Middlesbrough and Derby County – and drew with Arsenal – to progress to the knockouts as Group B winners, but the last eight proved a step too far.

Goals from Michael Okeke and Ashton Muir gave the Citizens a two-goal advantage inside 15 minutes and from there it was always going to be a difficult task.

The Irons, so defensively strong this season, found themselves behind twice, but showed grit and resilience to extend their winning league run to six games.

Callum Osmand opened the scoring against the run of play before Daniel Rigge levelled for the Hammers five minutes later.

Fulham then regained their lead almost instantly from the penalty spot, and Josh Ajala restored parity on the stroke of half-time.

Ajala fired the Hammers ahead after 66 minutes with a near-post finish. Tyron Akpata doubled West Ham's advantage from close range soon after. 

Osmand grabbed his second to hand the hosts a lifeline, but it could not ignite a fightback as the Irons defended resolutely to seal three vital points.

The young Hammers went toe-to-toe with their city rivals and almost snatched a point late on, with Ezra Mayers and Airidas Golambeckis unable to convert Dan Rigge’s whipped cross in stoppage time. A draw would have been the least those in Claret and Blue deserved, having taken the lead after just two minutes and impressed throughout. Josh Ajala found the net when he poked home against his former club, but Reiss-Alexander Russell-Denny would pull the visitors level just 90 seconds later, finding the top corner from 25 yards out. Frankie Runham then put Chelsea ahead before the break, but West Ham found their way back into the fixture at Little Heath, with a superb second-half showing. Substitute Rayan Oyebade produced a stunning volley to make it 2-2, finding the roof of the net after Mayers’ knockdown fell into his path on the hour, but the Hammers fell behind once again. Fin Herrick’s England U17 teammate, Russell-Denny, would find the net once more, as his whipped free-kick flicked the post and nestled into the bottom corner on 70 minutes.
