Stech exciting West Ham management

West Ham coaches are excited about the progress of Czech Republic youth international goalkeeper Marek Stech.

Of the Prague-born teenager, who joined West Ham United in July 2005, academy chief Tony Carr told whufc.com: "We haven't produced a goalkeeper through the youth academy for a very long time. Hopefully he is the one that can fill in that missing link. He is a real prospect and we have got high hopes. He has got a lovely size about him and a great attitude.

"He always wants to train and come in on his day off - he always wants to do that bit extra. There is no ego with him and he is definitely one for the future."
