FC Unity Under-12s clinched one trophy after beating Total Goal Falcons 6-0 – and are fast closing in on their second of a possible four.

Denis Lord-Hassan, Nicholas O’Hara, Roger Flores, Rees Jones, Deen Tijani and Emmanuel Makaya all got their names on the scoresheet against the Falcons to seal the Camden & Regent’s Park League Division A title.

And Unity boosted their chances of adding the Camden & Islington League crown to their collection, coming from behind to beat a very good Regent’s Park Harriers side 3-1.

Jones found the net twice and a fine solo effort from Makaya completed the comeback. Harry Smith also performed well for Unity, who have now gone four points clear with four games remaining.

Unity Under-17s also climbed to the summit in the Camden & Islington League as Daniel Leonard grabbed a hat-trick to secure a thrilling 3-2 success against rivals Somers Town.

Leonard’s header put Unity in front with just 30 seconds played and he then doubled the lead, but Town pulled a goal back before half-time.

An equaliser followed early in the second half, but Leonard won it with two minutes remaining, intercepting a pass in his own half and racing 50 yards to slam the ball into the net. Callum Cushing was man of the match.

Goals from Dominic Curren and debutant Teon Levy-Wright helped Unity Under-14s to claim a 2-2 draw against runaway leaders Essex Road Giants.

Nicky Marshall netted two goals and produced some excellent wing play as Isledon Wolves took a big step towards the title with an emphatic 6-2 victory over second-placed Regent’s Park Baggies.

Mo Asam, who looked sharp, added a goal of his own, while Alfie Lusardi, Deon Marshall and Reece Dewar were also on the scoresheet. Joe Bolger, who never wasted a pass, was Wolves’ man of the match.

Frankie Phillips was a thorn in the side of Chapel Youth’s defence as he helped Isledon Wolves Under-eights maintain their run of form with a 4-2 win.

Chapel took an early lead, but a run and cross from Phillips forced an own goal – and his next burst into the box triggered a clumsy challenge and a penalty, which was confidently converted by Tristan Baker.

Louie Hartley scored the goal of the game, a superb free-kick into the top corner, and Zhaviah Campbell continued his improvement with the Wolves’ fourth.

Roussard Ferretti and Jesse Aldridge both found the net as Isledon Wolves Under-nines kept up their fine run with a 2-1 victory at Camden Elite.

Ferretti exchanged passes with Oscar Phillips to open the scoring and the lively Aldridge hit the winner with a darting run and finish.

Charles Genovese put in an excellent performance in the Wolves defence.

JJ Connor’s double helped Isledon Wolves Channons Under-10s to a 3-0 win over The Hill in a game they controlled throughout.

Connor gave Channons a first-half lead and grabbed his second after the break, with Tristran Daley netting the third before Connor narrowly missed out on his hat-trick, hitting the post with a shot on the turn.
