West Ham

West Ham have signed midfielder Pelly Ruddock from non-league Boreham Wood following a successful trial.

Ruddock, 17, had been watched by scouts from several clubs but opted for The Hammers because of their commitment to giving youngsters a chance.

He told the club's official website: "It is good at West Ham because a lot of young players have come through and gone on to do good things.

"I just want to train and give 100% every time I play."
