Islington & Camden Schools’ under-12s celebrated a 3-2 win over Newham in the London Cup.

They had to come from 2-1 down, but kept their composure and dominated possession to score a fine team goal to level.

They had a late scare when Newham hit the crossbar and keeper Bobby also made a fantastic save, but were deserved winners as a superb passing move ended with a tap-in by Eddie.

Manager Darren Wade said: "Funny old game."
