Colchester United 1-0 West Ham United U21

(7′ mins): Samson Tovide’s close-range header was smuggled away – Armando Dobra the provider. However, when Dobra was sent clear by debutant, Shay Cooper, the Ipswich loanee had just enough to prod beyond Hammers stopper, Krisztian Hegyi to give Colchester an early lead.
