After an agonisingly close semi-final that ended in penalties, Supreme Young Voices held on to win the final 2-0 on September 24.

The tournament, now in its sixth year, took place at the Market Road football pitches run by GLL, and was watched by 140 people. The teams were made up of teens from community groups across Islington.

Organisers of the tournament Islington Faiths Forum said: “It was a really good standard of football with a serious level of focus and competition.”

The winner’s trophy and medals were presented by Mohammed Mahmoud – the “hero imam” who calmed and restrained the crowd after the Finsbury Park terror attack in June.

The event was supported by Islington Council Targeted Youth Support and the Access to Sports Project, and was aimed at gathering young people from different backgrounds, faiths and estates to get them thinking about peace.

Roz Miller, the faiths forum’s development director, said she wanted to thank Hak Huseyin and Engin Mehmet from Absolute Print Ltd in Junction Road, Archway. The business has sponsored the cup every year for the last six years, providing T shirts and bags to the players.
