With the under 17s without a fixture this weekend its was down to the younger girls to carry the flag for the West Ham Ladies junior section - which they did in style, with all three sides winning this weekend's league fixtures.

Under 15s

The 15s travelled away to Southend to play their third league fixture against Leigh Ramblers and came away with an amazing 16-0 win.

Defender Rhianne Holmes scored her first ever goal for West Ham Ladies after five seasons with the club. Isabelle Wallings went on the rampage against the team she was playing with last year getting five, Hannah Humphreys notched four and everyone pitched in against a team that just refused to lay down.

The effort from the Hammers opponents was outstanding, however the West Ham youngsters kept another clean sheet and played out a professional performance giving them a resounding victory.

Under 15s: Sindi Kanto, Abbie Fox, Rhianne Holmes, Madelene Wright, Grace Hill, Imogen Bennett, Leah Mills, Hannah Humphreys, Isabelle Wallings.

Subs: Georgina Momoh, Shanice Taylor-Newsam, Amanda Mundembe, , Eleanor Landen, Ellie Bowman.

Goals: Isabelle Wallings (5), Hannah Humphreys (4), Grace Hill (2), Eleanor Landen (2), Leah Mills, Shanice Taylor-Newsam, Rhianne Holmes.

Under 13s

The Under 13s travelled to Colchester and played out a good game of football against a Town side that had drawn their first two games of the season.

The game started evenly with both sides playing some good passing football but a masterclass from Hammers' striker Kelly Wealthall saw her score four goals in the first half making a Colchester second half comeback unlikely.

The second half saw some great defending from West Ham's back line of Lilly Adams, Molly Bowness and Kiera Harris -organised by the ever-dependable Maya Smith in goal - but as in previous games, good pressure from the midfield kept Colchester on the back foot.

Town briefly looked like getting back into the game before the Hammers took control, adding a further five goals from Wealthall - again, Sophie Kelly and a hat-trick from Poppy Binding. Still Colchester had their moments and they grabbed a consolation with a long-range shot that Maya Smith could only palm onto the bar and deflect in. West Ham finished the game 9-1 winners.

Under 13s: Lilly Adams, MollyBowness, Poppy Binding, Amber Denton, Kiera Harris, Sophie Kelly, Hannah Landen, Tessa oconner, Madeline oconnor, Elizabeth Reid, Maya Smith, Mia Seeley, Kelly Wealthall.

Goals: Kelly Wealthall (5), Poppy Binding (3), Sophie Kelly.

Under 11s

On a very hot day at May & Bakers the girls got off to a slow start, falling 1-0 behind early on. But after going close on a number of occasions West Ham eventually broke Leigh's stubborn resistance to force an equaliser.

The girls then started to play with more confidence and managed to score a few more goals to regain control of the game by half time. After the break, West Ham continued to play some excellent football and the opposition struggled to contain the young Hammers, who eventually ran out 10-1 winners.

Goals: Leigha Bradding-Butler (4), Holly Hutson (3), Lauren Hart, Lucy Brewster, Jada Sealy.
