Highbury Wolves Under-12s made sure there was no horror show on Halloween as they picked up their first win of the season, beating Haringey Cosmos 3-1.

Neo Rodney, who captained Wolves on the day and worked hard alongside Hichem Taleb in midfield, put his side ahead after just 10 minutes with a clinical finish.

Defender Kamal Fousseni doubled their lead just before half-time, smashing a volley into the back of the net after Haringey had failed to clear Jordan McKoy’s corner.

Goalkeeper Ahmed Eniola, who had made two fine saves to protect his side’s advantage, was left helpless after the break as the Cosmos pulled a goal back through a deflection.

But Highbury kept their heads, with substitute Ridwan Salam looking solid in a defensive midfield position, and Yimaz Oruk also impressing in the unfamiliar role of left-back.

And they sealed victory 10 minutes from time when Rodney’s pass found the lively McKoy, who fired into the bottom corner to make it 3-1.

The club hold training sessions on Wednesdays (4pm-6pm) and Saturdays and Sundays (10am-midday) at Highbury Fields. For more information, call 07857 224 671 or email highburyfootballschool@gmail.com
