Anthony Scully of West Ham United scores during the Leasing.com Trophy match between Newport County and West Ham United U21's at Rodney Parade on September 4, 2019 in Newport, Wales.

West Ham youngster Anthony Scully's outstanding run of form continued last night.

Scully was on target as the under-23s won 4-0 away at Stoke City, on a wet Monday night.

This made it eight goals in eight games in all competitions for the 20-year-old.

 

Scully has six in six now for the under-23s, and two in two for the under-21s in the EFL Trophy.

Scully's form is of particular note because he converted from a winger to play as a striker this season, following Dapo Alofayan's loan move to Mansfield Town.

He keeps on scoring and his goal helped West Ham record a win which maintained their lead at the top of the Premier League 2's second tier.

Scully also provided an assist on the night, his first of the season, setting up Nathan Holland for a goal.

Holland was another outstanding performer, and he has also been very consistent this season.

Both players deserve recognition, and if West Ham's first team form slides off after an impressive start, the shouts for call ups will grow louder.
