Born in Bermuda and raised in USA, Djair Parfitt-Williams was spotted by Hammers legend and fellow Bermudian Clyde Best whilst at San Jose Earthquakes.
Probably the most skilful flair player in our youth set-up, the 18-year-old is showing all the signs of becoming a future star.
With pace, confidence and an eye for goal, the young winger has taken the step-up from the under-18 side to the Development Squad after scoring nine in 19 for Steve Potts’ under-18s.
Since making his debut in our Development Squad, he has one goal in nine, a handful of assists and won man of the match in the recent 2-1 victory over Manchester City.
If he bulks up a bit, Parfitt-Williams could well soon stake his claim for a place on the West Ham wing, where there is certainly a vacancy at the moment.
