EC1 boys find it pays to be Picchi

Lorenzo Picchi snatched a late winner as EC1 Under-11s came from behind to clinch a 2-1 victory over AC United in the Camden & Islington Youth League.

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.
