Clapton Community's men's team picked up an impressive 3-1 victory on Saturday, away to a London Samurai side previously unbeaten in this season's MCFL Premier League.
The visitors went ahead on just four minutes when winger Bilal Hussain smashed home a loose ball from the edge of the six-yard box.
Goalkeeper Jack Francis was then called into action, tipping a ball that had cannoned off his own defender over the bar.
