Barking & Dagenham’s under-11 boys had to settle for a fourth-place finish at the Essex seven-a-side tournament.

They dominated their opening match with Redbridge, which ended in a draw, and then slipped to a 1-0 defeat against Chelmsford B after conceding an own goal.

Two goals from Somefechi Ukonu sealed a 2-0 win over Chelmsford A and he scored again in a 4-1 defeat against Thurrock.

That left the squad with only pride to play for in their last match against title hopefuls Newham and Ukonu breached their defence for the first time on the day to suggest an upset.

Barking continued to hold the upper hand, but Newham levelled with a deflected shot to claim the silverware.

Barking: D Mukasa (Roding Carrington), A Kosoko (Richard Alibon), S Ukuno, A Pal (D Barley), R Mann (Rush Green), A Shehu (Hunters Hall), A Zafer (Gascoigne), J Medine (Northbury), I Bangurah (Valence).
