Accrington Stanley shock West Ham United in FA Youth Cup

ACCRINGTON Stanley claimed a shock extra time victory over West Ham United in the FA Youth Cup tonight.

Stanley went ahead when Nathan Webb netted a fine overhead kick just after half time, but the visitors sent the game into extra time with a last-gasp leveller from Jamie Harney.

Accrington, however, regrouped and claimed a 2-1 win when Max Hazeldine scored in the 116th minute.

What a great result, well done to all involved, with a special pat on the back to the players. Of course all credit to Keith and his staff but as the saying goes, once across the white line it's down to the players. The worry is now with the new regulations that have been brought in so called bigger clubs will be trying to pick some of the lads off for peanuts. My advice for what it's worth, stick with the Stanley lads you could be playing first team football sooner than you think.

Some of these players have got to be included in the England Youth set up,West Ham was used as a benchmark for bringing players through,then is was Crewe under the Brilliant Dario Gradi,ut he used players that were release by bigger clubs,this is the coaching staff at the club bringing players through,at the big clubs such as West Ham the young players are spoilt,at Stanley these young players are 'Hungry'and honest and they have to keep that,and I am sure the coach will see to that,th problem now is how do they keep the coach?big clubs will now be looking at him along with the players,I wish al o them evey success,they deverse it.
