West Ham United 2 Charlton Athletic 1

HOT-PROSPECT Robert Hall came off the bench to grab an impressive winner as West Ham's Academy boys beat Charlton at Little Heath on Saturday morning.

The match seemed to be heading for a 1-1 draw in difficult windy conditions, when Christian Montano played a clever through-ball for 15-year-old Hall to run on to.

The goalkeeper got there first, but then fumbled and the England under-16 international reacted first to the loose ball to curl in a shot from an acute angle and complete the victory.

West Ham had gone in front as early as the second minute when Anthony Edgar was on target, but Charlton hit back on the half hour with a goal of their own.

West Ham kept going until the end though and Hall's winner meant it is now three victories on the trot for Tony Carr's men.
