Impressive West Ham youngsters see off Leicester


West Ham Under-18s enjoyed a 2-0 away victory against Leicester City on Saturday.

Both goals were scored in the first half, with Joe Powell curling a free-kick into the top corner before Korrey Henry netted from the penalty spot after Jahmal Hector-Ingram had been fouled in the area.

Elsewhere in the Under-18 Premier League, Chelsea beat Norwich 3-1 to move four points clear at the top of the table.

Harvey St Clair, Conor Gallagher and Tariq Uwakwe scored for the Blues in a one-sided game at their Cobham training ground.

St Clair fired home to open the scoring just after the half-hour mark – his sixth goal of the season.

Gallagher curled in Chelsea’s second shortly before the interval and they continued to dominate in the second half.

The third goal arrived when Canaries keeper Fergal Hale-Brown was unable to hold Uwakwe’s shot and the ball trickled into the net.

Owen Wallis pulled a goal back for the visitors late on.
