Edgar nails clincher in Hammers victory

West Ham began their pre-season with a 2-1 victory over English League One side Peterborough at London Road.

Teenage midfielder Anthony Edgar scored the winner after Carlton Cole's opener, set up by new signing Thomas Hitzlsperger, had been cancelled out by Dave Hibbert.

Elsewhere, Fulham defeated Brentford 5-0, relegated Hull thumped East Yorkshire neighbours North Ferriby 6-0 while fellow Championship side Scunthorpe won 5-1 at Brigg Town.

Coventry were held to a goalless draw by non-league Nuneaton.
