West Ham United defender Danny Gabbidon had an hour's football in yesterday's friendly against San Jose Earthquakes.

San Jose, whose new season begins on 27 March, have been training at Tottenham Hotspur's training ground since last Friday and looked sharp on a chilly afternoon at the Boleyn Ground. Gabbidon and Kieron Dyer both played for just over an hour while there were also run-outs for Manuel da Costa, Fabio Daprela, Ilan and Mido.

The second half saw several changes for the Hammers, with Terry Dixon getting the final 25 minutes of the game after appearing for Republic of Ireland Under-21s last week. San Jose won 2-0.
