WEST HAM new boy Frank Nouble took little time to make his presence felt as a Hammer after he grabbed a goal in his first game in claret and blue.

Nouble played the full 90 minutes of Friday's reserve team friendly at non-leaguers Thurrock and came up with the winner in the last minute when he latched on to Christian Montano's through ball.

Thurrock had taken an early lead in this game before trialist Sebastien Huke levelled, and it was young Irishman Eoin Wearen who headed them in front in the second half.

The home side hit back again, but Nouble's late strike gave them a 3-2 win.
