Another one bites the dust

The cull of West Ham's under-achieving youth squad continued today as midfielder Ben Marlow bade farewell to the club.

The 19-year-old midfielder, who usually plays in a central role tweeted his farewells having been told he will not be offered a new contract at the end of the season.

Unfortunately my time at West Ham United has come to an end," he wrote. "I would like to thank them for the ten years I have been there, I've learnt a lot and have many good memories.

"Now it's time to move on and look to the future, wherever it may be. Hopefully it will be the start of a new era and better things will come."

Marlow, who is in the third and final year of his scholarship at Chadwell Heath joins the likes of Kieran Bywater in leaving the club this season.

Others, such as Elliot Lee and Danny Whitehead are also widely tipped to move on as Academy Director Terry Westley continues his revamp of the Chadwell Heath set-up.

West Ham's Development Squad are currently bottom of the Under 21 Premier League table with eight points from 12 games, having won just twice in the league this season.
