Ryan FC Under-16s are County Cup champions again after beating Barking 3-1 after extra-time at the Mile End Stadium on Sunday.

Two goals from George Sharpe and another from Jayden Vernette meant Ryan retained the cup they won last season.

Manager Duncan Sharpe, who has been involved with the club for nearly ten years, said: “It still hasn’t sunk in yet but I’m really proud of the boys who have improved as a team as the season has gone on.”

There was a minute’s silence before the game in memory of Mark Huggins, who passed away shortly after Christmas.

Mark’s son Chris has been at Ryan FC since he was five.
