Ryan FC Under-13s Red have won the Echo Premier League – and subsequently promotion – after beating second-placed Barking Colts at Wadham Lodge.

Tony Scott’s side showed good character by strolling into a four-goal lead by half-time thanks to efforts from Uros Vakanjac, Zac Gaunt, Christian Mikeli and man-of-the-match, Ryley Scott.

Barking Colts battled back into the game in the second half but left the comeback too late, losing the match 4-2.

The team will now compete in the Eastern Junior Alliance League next season.
