More than 100 youngsters from 11 different schools gathered at Market Road to battle it out for top honours in an event organised by the Islington Football Development Partnership.

And St Joan of Arc reeled off five successive wins on the day to claim the silverware in stunning style.

They beat Grafton (3-0), St Peter’s & Paul’s (4-0) and Newington Green (2-0) in Group B to finish top and then saw off Group C winners Hargrave Park (4-1) in the semi-finals.

Meanwhile, Ashmount topped Group A after drawing with Montem (1-1) and beating Duncombe (3-0) and St Jude (3-1) and faced St Peter’s & St Paul’s, who were the best runners-up.

A 3-1 victory sent Ashmount through to the final, but St Joan of Arc claimed a 3-0 success for a memorable triumph.

Islington Football Development Coach Chloe Copsey said: “The quality of football played throughout the day was very high. There were lots of great goals and lots of smiles and happy faces.”
