Goals from Elijah Whyte, Nicholas Tosta and Kieran Collymore earned Unity FC Under-nines a 3-1 win against Eastern Avenue in the Camden & Islington League.

Lucas Bell-Lara and Akinloye Abisogun both impressed in defence for Unity, while Matteo Pablo Salazar performed well in goal during the second half.

The Under-nines also competed in the Cally All-Stars Cup at Market Road, where they finished with runners-up medals.

After going five matches undefeated, Unity overcame a strong Angel Islington side 3-0 in the semi-finals, but they were unable to repeat that result against ISS and went down 1-0.

Dominic Curren’s free-kick was the pick of the goals as Unity Under-15s ran out comfortable 3-0 winners in their clash with Admiral.

Curren opened the scoring before further goals from Harry Charie and Joe Manual made the game safe, while Unity goalkeeper Jordan Aloye produced some fine stops to preserve a clean sheet.

Rees Jones struck a double for Unity Under-13s in a 4-0 victory against Cricklewood to maintain their unbeaten record and keep them in the mix at the top of the league.

Malachi Pennant and Emmanuel Makaya were also on target for Unity, with goalkeeper Cameron Saunders completing another shut-out.
