DETERMINED FC Kensington under-12s clung on to beat Princes Park 3-2 and retain pole position in Harrow Youth League Division Three ahead of the Christmas break.

Both sides struggled to find their rhythm on one of the few playable pitches at Wormwood Scrubs, but it was FCK who grabbed the lead with their first chance of the game on 10 minutes.

Rashide Harrak collected the ball just inside the Princes' half, rounded one defender and outpaced another as he reached the penalty area before firing low and hard to the goalkeeper's left.

Five minutes later, Kyrone Wilson found himself in the same position and, although the keeper came off his line this time, Wilson rounded him with some deft footwork and tucked home a left-foot finish.

But Park passed the ball well after the break, putting FCK under pressure, and struck the woodwork twice in quick succession before deservedly pulling a goal back.

Kensington restored their two-goal advantage when Dan Keenan ran on to Wilson's weighted crossfield pass, took a touch and rifled into the net - but a defensive mix-up allowed Park to make it 3-2.

With FCK tiring, the visitors dominated the final 15 minutes and hit the post twice before the final whistle sounded, much to the relief of the Kensington players.
