West Ham United midfielder George Moncur says the club's youngsters are enjoying the experience of the U21 Premier League.

Moncur is now relishing the opportunity to test himself against England's top Under-21 teams, including Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Liverpool.

"It is brilliant to qualify because it allows us to progress and play against a higher level of opposition after Christmas. That is no disrespect to the teams in the league we are in right now but we will be competing against the top clubs in the Barclays Under-21 Premier League, which will be a great test for us," he told whufc.com.
