West Ham youngster George Dobson celebrates scoring his first professional goal

The 19-year-old scored for his loan club Walsall at the weekend.

West Ham United had a good weekend, picking up an impressive 2-2 draw with Liverpool at Anfield. The Hammers deserved their point against Jurgen Klopp’s men with an impressive performance on the road.

But it was not just those with the first-team that had a weekend to remember.

West Ham youngster George Dobson also enjoyed his weekend. The 19-year-old was loaned out to Walsall in the summer and at the weekend the teenage midfielder scored his first goal for the Saddlers.

He netted in the League One fixture against Fleetwood Town. He was clearly delighted with the goal, as he showed on his official Twitter account – posting this message:

Unfortunately for him it did not prove enough to pick up all three points, or any points for that matter. Walsall lost the game 2-1.

But his performance will hopefully see him get more minutes at The Banks’s Stadium. He has mainly been a substitute for the club since making his move and West Ham will want to see him getting more regular football at the club in the weeks and months to come.

Dobson will no doubt be hoping to add to his goal tally.
