West Ham United return to Premier League action with a trip to Burnley on Saturday, with Sean Dyche’s team riding high in sixth.

However, plenty of the Hammers’ stars were globetrotting during the international break, representing their countries.

Dagenham & Redbridge and Leyton meet in the fourth qualifying round of the FA Cup with bragging rights, a spot in the first round proper and £12,500 in prize money at stake.

Steve Davis’ men head into the clash without a win in seven having drawn 2-2 at Barrow last weekend.

Daggers lost for the first time in five outings as they were beaten 1-0 at Woking last Saturday and will hope to bounce back against their local rivals.

The cup tie will be a family affair for the Lings, with son Sam playing for Daggers and dad Martin the director of football for the O’s.

There’s also the latest from the local non-league scene, with a return to the pitch for Romford manager Paul Martin, on this week’s East London Football podcast.
