West Ham United’s Dylan Tombides has died on Friday

West Ham United’s Dylan Tombides has died on Friday morning after his battle with cancer.
He joined West Ham as a 15-year-old, playing as a striker for the youth team, and made his senior debut in the League Cup against Wigan in September 2012.
The 20 Year old had being diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2011 after playing for Australia in the Under-17 World Cup in Mexico. A random drugs test, taken after his team were beaten 4-0 by Mexico, uncovered a tumour in one of his testicles.

West Ham United will hold a minute’s applause in memory of Dylan Tombides ahead of the club’s Premier League game against Crystal Palace on saturday at Upton Park and West Ham's players will wear black armbands in his memory.
A West Ham statement read: “The thoughts of everyone associated with the club are with his parents Tracylee and Jim, brother Taylor, his family and friends at this sad time. The club request that their privacy is now respected and they are allowed to grieve their much loved son and brother in peace.”
Tombides’s brother Taylor, a West Ham youth player, tweeted: “R.I.P. Dylan my beloved brother you will be missed, but never forgotten you was a massive inspiration to everyone.”
