Home draw for Hammers

Filed: Friday, 11th December 2009
By: Staff Writer

Tony Carr's youth team have landed a home tie in the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup.

The under-18s made the fourth round of the competition courtesy of Danny Purdy's extra-time winner at Plymouth on Tuesday night and will now face fellow Londoners Queens Park Rangers, presumably at the Boleyn, in mid January.

Irish under-17 international Purdy scored the only goal of Tuesday's encounter midway through extra-time to send the Hammers into today's draw - an effort described by Carr as "an excellent goal to win the game".

That was United's first outing in this year's competition, with the club having received a bye until the third round. The club have won the trophy three times previously, most recently in 1999.
