"It was great. We've got a few young ones knocking on the door and we've got to do that on a regular basis. We're looking for consistency, not just from the young kids but from the seniors as well," Hammers No2 Neil McDonald told the club's website.

"We had a good mix in both games and everyone complemented each other and worked hard for each other. When the chances came along, we put them in the back of the net, so it was a great start but nothing to get too excited about."
