Hackney’s Sporting Club de Mundial warmed up for their next FA Sunday Cup test this weekend with a 14-0 win over FC United of Bromley at Norman Park.
Jordan Chiedozie led the way with a hat-trick, as Greg Moorse and David Fallah scored twice against the Metropolitan Sunday League side.
And Ruaridh Kay, Shameek Farrell, Ryan Hubble, Seye Okunlola, Daniel McCullock, Dave Stevens and an own goal completed the tally as they booked a place in the London Sunday Junior Cup quarter-finals.
The newly formed club, which plays in the Hackney & Leyton League Premier Division, has won its first 10 games in all competitions and is made up of a group of friends who grew up playing together at Mabley Green.
Many represented the borough's junior district teams, plus academies at Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham, Millwall, Wimbledon and more, and they face Priory Sports, of the Chelmsford Sunday League, on Sunday at 1pm.
