Newham District under-13s have completed a remarkable campaign after successfully completing the double at Harlow stadium with a thumping 8-4 win over Waltham Forest District in the London Cup final.

Newham were unlucky not to take the lead in the first five minutes missing several clear chances but the heaven gates eventually opened eventually.

A hat-trick from Troy Bedzo of Lister Community school and two goals from Jerimiah of Kingsford community school cancelled out any hope for the opposition.
