West Ham Striker on Trial
Tuesday, 5th Apr 2016 12:06
West Ham striker Jordan Brown was the trialist in action for the Blues’ U21s in the 2-1 win at Barnsley yesterday, TWTD understands.
Brown, 19, is out of contract at the end of the season and has been told he will not be offered new terms, having joined the Hammers academy from Arsenal’s youth set-up in 2013.
The 6ft 1in tall Londoner, who has won England caps at U16 and U17 levels, made his only appearance for West Ham’s senior side as an 80th minute sub in their Europa League defeat to Romanian side Astra Giurgiu in August.
Brown spent a month on loan at Vanarama National League South Chelmsford City in the autumn, where he made four appearances without scoring, and reportedly spent time on trial in Germany earlier this year.

Surely our own academy has players as capable? Struth

Sounds like a perfect Ipswich player these days, sign him up Mick!

Worth a punt maybe, but a bit worrying he couldn't score in the Vanarama National League South. That's the league below the National League where James Alabi scored four goals in one half for Chester last month.
Anyway, best of luck to him with his trial.

Another James Alabi to fill out the U21 squad for a year, I'd imagine

Looks like Frank Nouble

I wonder if he's been let go because he's behind the likes of Sam Ford?

Sounds like another MM classic.

Guys. Leave the mighty clarets alone. Least the fans get some entertainment at Chelmsford. In Mick we trust. We are the best team in the world

The new Nouble. Noice! Where is he now actually!?

@Currie10 I looked at this the other day and his parent club are currently Tianjin Quanjian in a Chinese league but he's been loaned out to another Chinese team called Nei Mongol Zhongyou!

So he's being let go probably because they have a new young talented striker called Sam Ford they have just offered professional terms to from ........ oh hang on ....... you couldn't make it up !!!!
Is Mick having a laugh with us ......

Worth a punt but what's wrong with our youth
|pup12 added 16:54 - Apr 5|
Make a great right back/centre half.Tall enough
|Taricco_Fan added 17:03 - Apr 5|
...and we let our own prospect Sam Ford go to West Ham.
|clive_baker added 17:34 - Apr 5|
Why do people assume that West Ham are more able at recognising young talent than we are? Ok so they took Ford off us and we might or might not take this lad, but just because they're in the Premier League doesn't mean they're more able to spot a prospect. I can't recall the last time West Ham bought through a decent striker of their own (can't actually think of anyone better than Sears ironically), meanwhile we've had Wickham, Rhodes, Bent etc.

Defoe, Zamora , Tompkins ,Noble , Johnson , Carrick , Ferdinands , Lampard and JT what do West Ham academy know ?
|jas0999 added 18:37 - Apr 5|
Digby and now this. Oh dear. Lack of ambition.
|tractorboyjim added 20:45 - Apr 5|
