West Ham kid Sears tipped for first team breakthrough

West Ham academy chief Tony Carr is backing striker Freddie Sears to be the next youngster to crack Alan Curbishley's first team.

He told the Hammers website: "I think Freddie has got what it takes to do what Jack [Collison] has done and force himself into reckoning with the first team. You can never determine these things for sure, nothing is guaranteed, but on Freddie's goals and performances, hopefully he will have caught the eye. The manager is aware of his talents and has seen him in games and in training."
