SOL CAMPBELL'S return to Arsenal may have grabbed most of the headlines, but something more significant happened at West Ham's reserve team clash with the Gunners at Upton Park on Tuesday night.
Freddie Sears, just returned from a fruitless loan spell at Crystal Palace, was on the mark, not once, but twice in a thrilling Premier Reserve League clash.
Arsenal had grab-bed a 2-0 half-time lead, but West Ham hit back after the break as they looked to get something out of the match.
First Sears himself was brought down, before firing his penalty past goalkeeper Vita Mannone.

Then with 11 minutes left, Cristian Montano was hauled down for a second penalty and Sears was once again on target to level the scores at 2-2.
Fabio Daprela, Josh Payne, Bondz N'Gala and Anthony Edgar were all included in the line-up, but in the end it was not enough.
