Coventry City 2 West Ham 1
HAMMERS' defender Sergio Sanchez scored his first goal for the Academy team, but it was not enough to prevent a 2-1 inter-group FA Premier League Academy defeat against Coventry City.
The 16-year-old (pictured right), arrived from Spanish giants Barcelona earlier in the season and has proved a useful player at both under-16 and under-18 level.
He headed his team in front midway through the first half, but goals either side of the break were enough to give Coventry the victory as they had the better of the second half.
The Academy boys next play this Friday (April 24) when Bristol City are the visitors to Little Heath for a 12.30pm kick off.
MEANWHILE, there may be another youngster breaking into the first team sooner rather than later.

Eagle-eyed West Ham fans at Villa Park on Saturday may well have spotted a certain number 36 warming up with the rest of the squad.
It was none other than Icelandic 18-year-old Icelandic centre half Holmar Orn Eyjolfsson, who signed last summer.
