Parfitt-Williams Scores Twice In West Ham Win

March 21, 2014

SFootballer Djair Parfitt-Williams scored two goals for West Ham United U18s to propel them to a 2-1 victory over Leicester City earlier this week in the UK.

The Club’s match report said, “The Hammers hit the front with 36 minutes gone, when Bermuda-born Parfitt-Williams dispossessed City centre-back Sam Jones, before slotting home his eighth league goal of the campaign.

“The lead, however, would only last until six minutes after the interval, as Simonas Stankevicius got the better of Manny Onariase and slotted past ‘keeper Sam Howes to make it one apiece.

“But it was Parfitt Williams who had the final word, collecting from Jamie Harney, skipping beyond the full-back and then driving home the winner with 82 minutes on the clock.”

Speaking on Parfitt-Williams, Academy director Tony Carr said, ”He’s a very talented boy. He’s still coming to terms with the European and British game, as his background is American.

“He’s only in his first year with us as a scholar and hopefully he can progress. But he’s very talented, good on the ball and has got an eye for a goal.”

Parfitt-Williams was born in Bermuda and moved to California when he was eight. He was recommended to West Ham by former West Ham legend, Bermudian Clyde Best.
