Gianfranco Zola plays for West Ham

The son of West Ham United manager Gianfranco Zola made his first appearance for a club XI last night, during a 3-2 victory over Thurrock.

Andrea Zola, an 18-year-old midfielder who operates on the left hand side, played the first 45 minutes for a team largely consisting of youth team players, before being replaced by Simone Bezzicherri.
