West Ham’s Trott stays hot
Nathan Trott and his West Ham United Under-23 team-mates recorded an emphatic 4-0 triumph away to Everton in Premier League 2 yesterday.
Marcus Browne, the captain, accounted for all the goals as the visitors had things all their own way.
Trott, the Bermudian goalkeeper, had a quiet outing between the posts on the way to a second straight clean sheet in the league as the home side rarely threatened to score in the one-sided affair.
The only time he was tested was near the hour mark when he tipped an effort over the bar.
Trott has now yet to concede in his previous four matches, that also include last month’s international matches with England Under-20 against Poland and Portugal.
Browne, who scored a stunning free kick in West Ham U23’s 1-0 triumph at Manchester City last week, picked up where he had left off when he opened the scoring at Southport’s Haig Avenue in the 38th minute.
He then doubled his team’s lead in the 51st minute before completing his hat trick thirteen minutes later.
With the match having long ended as a contest, Browne added a fourth with a thumping effort from 20-yards.
The result saw West Ham leapfrog Everton and London rivals Chelsea into fifth in the Premier League 2 standings.
Trott and his team-mates are away to lowly Derby County in their next outing in the Premier League 2.
• Premier Division side Robin Hood and First Division outfit Southampton Rangers will resume their quest for FA Cup glory during tonight’s Final replay at the National Stadium, which kicks off at 7 o’clock.
A late afternoon thunderstorm forced the Final to be abandoned on Sunday.
Proceedings were halted in the fifteenth minute with the game goalless after torrential downpours and severe lightning sent the players, coaching staff and match officials scurrying for shelter.
Hood, the 2015-16 Cup winners, are appearing in the second FA Cup Final and Rangers, who lifted the prestigious showpiece during the 1983-84 campaign, in their fifth.
