Havering schools' Year 8 football team sealed a comfortable 4-1 victory over Islington thanks to another terrific performance. 

A brace from Matthias Ojo and goals from Thomas Alder and Charlie Goodwin helped them make it back-to-back wins. 

Last week, they managed to overcome Redbridge 4-1 in a friendly at London Playing Fields, with goals from Thomas, Matthais, Christian Frimpong Manioo and Vinnie Perkins.  

The Year 7 team managed a well-earned 2-2 draw in their first league game of the season away at Chelmsford & Mid Essex at Shenfield School, with both goals from Karolis Barkus.  

Both sides are looking forward to their respective seasons having suffered several interruptions last year due to the pandemic.
