Robert Graham smashed in a hat-trick to help Forest United’s under-16s to a resounding 4-0 success against St Joseph’s.

Although the Kenton side had played just 24 hours earlier, there were no signs of fatigue as they made a positive start to the game.

Graham gave Forest the lead from a penalty after DeAndre Johnson had been brought down with just the goalkeeper to beat, and they held that advantage until half-time.

St Joseph’s briefly threatened to respond, but Graham netted a 30-yard free-kick to double his side’s lead and Johnson then made it 3-0 with a superb individual strike.

It was man of the match Graham who had the last word, netting his second penalty of the game to round off Forest’s victory.

Hendon under-15s were denied a deserved victory as they conceded a last-gasp equaliser to Cheshunt in Sunday’s Eastern Junior Alliance clash.

The Greens dominated the game and created a number of chances, with their second choice goalkeeper George Knights performing well in an unfamiliar outfield role.

But it took them until 12 minutes from time to break the deadlock, with goalkeeper Alfie Boal beginning a flowing four-man move that ended with a superb volley from Domenico Contino.

That seemed enough for Hendon, but Cheshunt had other ideas and snatched an equaliser in the dying seconds of the match.

AFC Wembley’s under-15s took maximum points from a double header with Hayes & Yeading United, winning the games 3-0 and 4-1.

AFCW’s under-14s also played a double header against Actual Soccer, and beat them 4-0 before the scoreline was reversed in the second encounter.

The under-11s won 4-2 at Acton Town Whistlers, while the under-12 B team beat Pinner United 3-0 and the under-10 B team fought out a 2-2 draw with Hayes & Yeading United.
