A mixture of Byron Red Star under-7 Eagles & Kestrels came out on top in their first tournament of the summer at Redbridge’s Oakside Stadium.
They won four out of five group games, with Owen Hutchinson scoring four times, while Louis King and Lennie Nicholson nabbed braces.
George London kept three clean sheets to help seal top spot and set up a final with R77, the only team to beat them in the group.
Frank Campkin and Teddy Humphries battled well in midfield to set up Leo Leborgne, who shot just wide, while great defending by William Exley kept R77 at bay.
And Byron snatched victory in the last minute as Hutchinson collected the ball on the left and played in Leborgne to slot home.
