NW London FC came up just short on their Middlesex League debut against Hackney Wick Reserves.

The club, formed by Kilburn resident Samir Naji in 2015, got off to a nervous start and found themselves behind early on.

But they soon discovered their passing game and managed to turn things around and lead.

The sides went into the half-time break on level terms, though, and NW London hit the crossbar after the retsrta.

The home side then netted twice in the space of six minutes to take control, before NW London rallied to claim their third goal of the game with six minutes left.

But despite late pressure, the visitors could not add to the goals scored by the impressive pairing of Dante Cobianchi and Lucas Jimack and get back on level terms.

Chairman Naji was mostly pleased, though, and said: “I thought we dominated the major part of the game and our attack looked dangerous throughout.”
