Fletcher joined the Hammers from Manchester United last week after being told he had no future at Old Trafford under new boss Jose Mourinho following a successful spell on loan at Barnsley last season, where he scored nine goals.

Fletcher is hoping to force his way into Slaven Bilic’s first-team plans at West Ham in the upcoming campaign and impressed at the first opportunity, scoring the second goal in the 2-2 draw with Czech side Slovacko on their Austrian tour.

“I’ve loved every minute,” the 20-year-old told the club’s website. “Everyone has welcomed me with open arms and I am delighted to be at West Ham.


“The senior players have helped me to settle in, we have a great group here and hopefully we’ll kick on.

“My aim has to be to break into the first team. It’s a very talented team and one that is going to be competing at the top of the Premier League, so for me it will be vital to keep showing myself I can do it.”

Fletcher added to Kevin Noble’s opener in the friendly and he was delighted with his goal.

He added: “It’s nice to get off the mark. Ultimately We are a bit disappointed not to get the win tonight, but it’s pre-season and we go again.”
