United went ahead early in the second half, but a stunning free-kick from Percy Winter levelled the scores and, in the closing stages, Picchi beat two defenders before slotting home.

Ellis Swift-Harris and Ronnie Hughes both scored twice, with Kamal Bannerman-Thompson also on target as EC1 Youth Under-12s kept up their run of form with a 5-1 victory over The Hill.

A trio of players all registered braces for Angel Islington Under-nines as they hammered hapless Futebol de Salao 7-1.

Billy Osborn, Teddy Shields and Harry Merchant all found the net twice for Angel, while Will Reilly opened his account for the season from the penalty spot.

Dylan Bolister bagged a double as A Class Under-15s defeated Islington Admiral to record their second successive 3-0 win.

Cy Samuel-Clarke fired into the bottom corner to complete the scoring as A Class built on their previous 3-0 victory against Isledon Wolves, when Zak Miles (2) and Joe White got their names on the scoresheet.

Man of the match Bassam Menhal netted the only goal of the game with a superb second-half strike for Isledon Wolves Under-15s against Somers Town.
