Six young Hammers are currently out of loan; each week KUMB.com brings you up to date with their progress. Here's how they fared today...
Cristian Montano: Notts County 2 Walsall 1
19-year-old Montano was on hand to score the winning goal in today's 2-1 triumph for current club Notts County. The Columbian, who last week entended his loan spell with the League One club struck midway through the second half to win all three points for County, who opened the scoring through Lee Hughes. Andy Butler levelled for the visitors on the hour mark - four minutes before the young Hammer struck the final goal of the game. Martin Allen's side rise to ninth in the table as a result.
Callum McNaughton, Jordan Brown: Aldershot 1 AFC Wimbledon 1
Young centre-half McNaughton, who signed for Terry Brown's AFC little more than 24 hours earlier played a full 90 minutes as his new club were denied a win at Aldershot thanks to a last-minute equaliser from Danny Hylton. However he was denied the opportunity to face fellow Academy graduate Jordan Brown, who made his debut for the Shots against Cheltenham last week but wasn't included in Dean Holdsworth's 16-man squad today.
Ahmed Abdulla: Swindon 2 Southend Utd 0
19-year-old Abdulla, who joined Paolo Di Canio at Swindon on a month's loan at the beginning of September came on as a second half substitute to help his new club beat Southend 2-0 at the County Ground today. It was his second appearance for Swindon, who have now won both games since signing the 19-year-old forward.
Olly Lee: Rotherham 3 Dagenham & Redbridge 1
The eldest son of former Hammer Rob Lee was on the losing side today despite getting another 90 minutes of first team experience under his belt. Although putting in another good stint in the Daggers midfield, Lee couldn't prevent Rotherham taking a 3-1 half time lead - one that they maintained for the reaminder fo the game. Dagenham drop to 11th place in League Two as a result.
Pablo Barrera: Real Zaragoza
The Mexican winger - on loan at Zaragoza for the season - is set to start for his new club when they visit Rayo Vallecano tomorrow night. Barrera, who moved to Spain last month had played just once for his new club so far, when they lost their opening game of the 2011/12 La Liga campaign 6-0 at home to Real Madrid a fortnight ago. Zaragoza are currently bottom of the 20-team league.
