West Ham stars Andy Carroll, Jonathan Calleri and Raphael Spiegel were guests of honour as the 2016 Lycamobile Cup launched last week at the club’s Foundation headquarters at Beckton.

The three players met youngsters and dished out the medals to the successful teams on the day and it proved to be a great success.

The competition is a youth football tournament that involves 84 teams from local secondary schools and community centres competing in a series of competitions over the course of the season.

And the tournament culminates in a finals day for the players and their families in April 2017 where there will be the chance to play at West Ham’s impressive new London Stadium in Stratford.

The competition was first introduced back in 2013, but has grown enormously over the years with over 3,500 youngsters taking part last year where West Ham Kicks from Newham and Skinners Academy from Hackney took the under-12 and under-14 titles respectively.

This time round, a total of 18 teams took part in the opening day of action with competition at both under-12 and under-14 level.

The under-12 competition saw entries from Cumberland, Eastlea Community, Chobham Academy, Kingsford Community, Langdon Park, Bishop Challoner, Oasis Academy, St Bonaventures and Tonbridge.

And it was Heathcote School from Chingford who proved the strongest team on the day.

They pipped Oasis Academy 1-0, Langdon Park 1-0, St Bons 1-0, Kingsford 2-1, Chobham Academy 3-0 and drew 0-0 with EMC Academy to pip St Bons for the title on the day.

It was EMC Academy who recorded the biggest win of the competition when they dispatched Langdon Park 4-0 in their clash.

The under-14 competition featured Cumberland, Eastlea, Chobham, Kingsford, Langdon Park, Oasis, St Bons, Tonbridge and Stratford School Academy and this time it was Eastlea who took the honours.

They overcame Kingsford, beat Cumberland 1-0, drew 0-0 with Chobham Academy, beat Stratford 1-0, drew 1-1 with St Bons and 0-0 with EMC Academy to take the title ahead of Chobham in a wide-open competition.
