Gunners wait in the Final

In a repeat of the 1980 FA cup final, West Ham are to face Arsenal in the final of this years Youth Cup tournament after dispatching Southampton tonight at the London Stadium.

The U-18s were quick out the blocks tonight with Divin Mubama opening the scoring on 10 minutes before Marshall put the hammers 2 up just 3 minutes later with a fantastic driven shot across the keeper into the far corner.

It stayed that way for the rest of the half despite the Hammers spurning chances after sloppy play by the Saints defenders.

Mubama extended the lead to 3-0 just 7 minutes into the second half. Southampton kept up the pressure and were rewarded with a well taken finish by Dominic Ballard, That was just a consolation goal as West Ham possibly stung by conceding the goal we’re soon three goals clear again.

Hammers captain Kadua finished off well to make it 4-1 before Mubama sealed the win with our 5th and his third. Sub Fawunwi tapped home another late on to put a great shine on the result to send those attending home happy

The final will be played on 29th April at Arsenals Emirates Stadium but before that the two teams meet in the league on the 15th of April with West Ham at home.

The U-18s are now on the verge of a league and cup double and if successful would be our 1st Youth Cup win since 1999 and the days of Joe Cole & Michael Carrick.
