Billy Osborn scored two goals and set up another as Islington Under-11s beat Camden 4-2 to clinch their first Kay Trophy since 2003.
Osborn supplied the spadework for Mesdar Woldesus to hit Islington’s opening goal after 10 minutes and then doubled their lead himself before Camden halved the deficit with a free-kick.
Zion Abbott’s corner was headed in by Freddy Lambert to give Islington a 3-1 advantage going into half-time, but Camden hit back again on the counter-attack.
Islington had to survive a tense spell before reasserting their dominance as Sammy Djilli’s run and cross was converted by the unmarked Osborn to seal victory.
“I am so proud of all my players,” said Islington manager Marc Stocking. “From the very first minute you could see what the game meant to them and they all gave 100 per cent.
