Blues Res 2 West Ham Utd Res 1

Jake Jervis opened the scoring for Blues 16 minutes into the match at Damson Park and Damien Johnson gave new second string coach Malky Thomson's side a 2-0 first half lead just after the half-hour mark.

The Hammers pulled one goal back six minutes after the break with a Frank Nouble spot kick but Blues held on to take maximum points to lift themselves off the foot of the Barclays Premier Reserves League South table.
