West Ham kids Tomkins, Spence target breakthrough

West Ham United youngsters Jordan Spence and James Tomkins have ambitions of translating their reserves central defensive partnership into the first team.

"That would be good," Tomkins told whufc.com. "I mean, you never know, fingers crossed we can play together well and take it all the way to the first team like they did."

Spence added: "We know all about Anton (Ferdinand) and Elliott (Ward), so for us to follow them, is something we are definitely aiming for."

Tomkins added: "We have both started well this season in the reserves and everything is going well for us. We will both be looking to take every chance that comes along, that's for sure."
