West Ham United academy chief Tony Carr says there's more youngsters ready to follow new fans' favourite Freddie Sears into the first team.

Sears, 18, scored the winning goal on his first-team debut against Blackburn Rovers at the weekend.

"There was another young lad on the bench on Saturday, centre-back James Tomkins," Carr told BBC London.

"I'm sure he'll get his chance before the end of the season which will be fantastic for the academy."
