Tony Carr Youth Director said that Ayo Akinsete was probably the success story of the players that were released in May 2003. Tony added that the Second year boy was released rather than failed because no one fails in the academy system, they just find the level where they are going to be comfortable.
"By coming through the system they are going to be better players and better people for it and it opens the door for them in other avenues. "This has happened to Ayo who is academically quite bright and I am pleased to say had the opportunity to go to America on a four-year football scholarship.

1955-56 Metropolitan League:
Marios was with the Hammers for three years and he was offered an apprenticeship at the same time as Geoff Pike, but decided to decline the offer as his family were granted immigration to Canada. A sad Ron Greenwood sent him off with a nice reference letter and suggested he pursue his footballing career with his new hometown club in Toronto.
The local NSL semi-professional team in Toronto accepted Marios onto their playing staff, he even managed to sign on for the Canadian National team where he remained a regular for a number of years, going on to win 15 caps for his new country. Outside of football he finished his academics at University in Engineering.
Marios missed his time at West Ham, but very much valued the opportunity to represent his new country as an international!
