West Ham: Lennon Peake makes Hammers return after serious injury

West Ham: Lennon Peake makes Hammers return after serious injury -West Ham News

West Ham United youngster Lennon Peake recently made his return to football after undergoing two surgeries since 2020.

The Lowdown: Peake’s injuries

After rupturing his ACL, MCL, LCL and meniscus, the midfielder underwent an initial surgery to repair the problem.

However, issues emerged following the procedure, and the 20-year-old had to undergo a second surgery – effectively restarting his recovery process from the beginning.

As a result, the last time Peake took to the field in a competitive match was back in February 2020.

The Latest: Peake’s return

As per Claret & Hugh’s report, Peake made his return to football at the weekend as he appeared for West Ham’s U21’s side in their Premier League 2 clash against Manchester City.

Despite the Hammers’ 4-1 defeat, the youngster was overjoyed to put the claret and blue shirt on once again:

“It was almost like starting again. It’s been a long journey, a long road, but it’s great to be back. I’ll never take playing football for granted ever again.”

The Verdict: Pushing through the ranks

Getting back to full fitness with the U21’s, Claret & Hugh claim that the 20-year-old will now be dreaming of making a breakthrough to the Irons’ first-team, hoping to establish himself as a prospect for Moyes’ squad going forward.

Can you name all of these forgotten West Ham flops...who is this Allardyce signing?

However, as West Ham’s busy transfer window saw eight new players worth £170m arrive through the door at Rush Green, the opportunity to break through into the first-team squad will appear even more difficult for the academy’s youngsters.

Becoming a prominent player in the Premier League 2 will be imperative for Peake if he is going to bounce back from what was seen as a potentially career-ending injury.
