West Ham's Upson backing youngsters Spence, Tomkins

West Ham United's England defender Matthew Upson has identified two youngsters at the Academy as ones to watch.

Upson is convinced Jordan Spence and James Tomkins are set to stake a claim in future, telling the West Ham matchday programme: "Tomka's showed some real talent and understanding of the position. Jordan looks very good too. He's trained with us a few times and he looks a really good athlete. He's got a good athletic build. There are some good young prospects coming through."
