West Ham 3 Fulham 1
WEST HAM'S Academy team earned an excellent victory over Fulham at Little Heath on Saturday morning.
The Hammers grabbed two late goals to finally break the Fulham resistance and take their Premier Academy League record to just two defeats in the last 10 matches.
Robert Hall gave West Ham the lead on the half hour, when he conjured himself up a little bit of space to turn and fire into the net.

But that lead disappeared shortly after the break when the unfortunate Eoin Wearen sliced the ball into his own net to level the scores.
West Ham held sway for most of that second period, but in the end it took a penalty and a piece of fortune to finally earn them the points.
