West Ham's Widdowson delighted to be part of US tour

West Ham defender Joe Widdowson is delighted to be part of the club's US tour.

"It is really good to be here," said the homegrown defender who lives a stone's throw from the Boleyn Ground.

"I have been with the club quite a long time, since I was eleven. This is a big step forward and it was a really good thing to be included in the party coming out here. I am hoping to be involved as much as possible," he added on whufc.com.

Widdowson possibly could be facing up directly against David Beckham later this week.

He said: "A few people have mentioned it and I must admit I have thought about it. They have been telling me to get stuck in if it happens! If I did play against him it would be amazing. Beckham is just a legend and to come up against him would be unreal."
