Its three wins out of three as Newham district under-12s as they brushed side Thurrock with a 7-4 victory.

The youngsters have now scored a staggering 21 goals in three games brushing aside all opponents in their path.

They were missing a few players due to injury but Newham remained solid and started off like a steam train and after 20 minutes found themselves 4-0 up thanks to goals from Modestas Kalinausks and Jerome Thomas.

The referee however awarded a penalty to Thurrock which was well dispatched followed by a harsh indirect free-kick which Thurrock moved quickly in putting away.

Newham then went through the gears and Modestas Kalinausks completed his hat-trick.

Samson Uwandu then hit two quick fire goals for Newham to quash any hopes Thurrock making a return into the game.

Luke Grant also scored to secure the three points.
