Andy Carroll has been conspicuous by his absence on the pitch for West Ham of late, but the striker has scored a big modelling job for high-street chain H&M, his first since signing for Select Models earlier this year.

Carroll modelled the new range, Alexander Wang for H&M, after reportedly beating more than 200 rivals to win the job.

"I had a good chat with Alexander, turns out we both have a keen interest in trainers and he had noticed the ones I was wearing before I did my shoot," Carroll told Vogue UK. "I guess you could say we discussed fashion!"

"I don't think I'm quite ready to take on Becks [David Beckham] yet," he added. "I will leave that to him for the time being! I'm going to concentrate on the day job of scoring goals for West Ham and hopefully England."

West Ham order Tomkins to carry out extra community work after assault conviction

West Ham have ordered their defender James Tomkins to carry out extra community work after he was found guilty of assaulting a police officer and being drunk and disorderly outside a nightclub in December.

Tomkins, 25, pleaded guilty to both offences on Monday and was fined £3,500 by magistrates. He will now carry out extra community work, including coaching young and disabled footballers in the local area.

"Getting him out in the community - particularly when he's a West Ham boy - is a much better punishment than fining him," West Ham boss Sam Allardyce said.

"The bottom line is he shouldn't have got himself into that situation or that position - he should show more responsibility."

He he apologised yesterday for a "moment of madness" as he pleaded guilty to a charge under Section 4 of the Football Offences Act 1991.

He was ordered by the judge to pay a total of £305 but spared a ban from attending future matches.

Today an online appeal titled "Jordan Dunn FineRaiser" reached that amount after attracting 37 donations.
