SCHOOLBOYS Dominic Vose and Robert Hall proved too hot to handle for Crystal Palace on Saturday morning as West Ham's Academy team returned to winning ways.
The under-18s have not been at their best since their disappointing FA Youth Cup loss to Newcastle United, but they bounced back in style to brush Palace aside at Little Heath with three second-half strikes.
Winger Vose, just 16, bagged two goals and fellow 16-year-old Hall, scored the first to give West Ham all three points.

Academy director Tony Carr was delighted with the four schoolboys he had in his side, with Dylan Tombides and Blair Turgott joining Hall and Vose.
"I'm more than pleased and it bodes well for the future," said Carr. "We have a very young team who will get better and better."
