West Ham teenager Grady Diangana scores yet again for U18s

The midfield talent has been in fine form for West Ham United's under-18s in recent weeks.

West Ham United midfielder Grady Diangana has continued his fine start to the campaign for the Hammers’ under-18 side, scoring his third goal of the season this weekend.

The 17-year-old attacking midfielder, who is equally comfortable on the right wing if required, netted the only goal of the game as West Ham’s under-18 side took on their Fulham counterparts on Saturday, and at this rate it may not be too long before Diangana adds to his eight under-21 appearances.

The West Ham teenager scored in the 87th minute against the Cottagers and ensured his side have now gone seven games unbeaten at this level.

West Ham’s senior side have impressed since Slaven Bilic took charge and while they slipped up against Watford this weekend there are still plenty of reasons to be optimistic.

But it is not just the senior stars that are looking on the up. The Hammers’ academy continues to produce some very talented youngsters who may be catching the eye of Bilic sooner rather than later, Diangana among them.
