Dawned on me yesterday that whilst the memories today will be of the 'Dowie game' that wasn't the last time a West Ham team turned out at EP. That came a couple of years later.
It was an FA Youth Cup game. And a cracker it was as well. we lost 3-2, but only to the eventual winners of the competition, who beat Coventry 9-0 in the final!!
Turning out for the Hammers were Joe Cole and Michael Carrick.
For us the names who made it as far as the first team were Keith Briggs; Dessie Byrne (!!); Glynn Hancock; Jon Daly and Peter Wild, albeit that only Briggs and Daly played much.
