Form favoured Streatham heading into the game having taken the win in every encounter between the two sides this season.

Early on Streatham’s usually rock-solid defence was caught out by a turnover in their zone which allowed a waiting Cain Russell to fire into the roof of the net over Danny Milton with two minutes gone.

The Streatham Youth and Community Trust (SYCT), the charity which runs Sprig Ludens, said the decision was the result of the Government’s “failure” to provide funding to cover the real costs involved in free child care.

Plans to put a 14-storey tower in an area with a more suburban than inner-city feel, have taken a step forward despite more than 1,000 people objecting to the proposals.

Planners from Lambeth council have recommended councillors approve the 237-home scheme on a site currently occupied by a Homebase store in Woodgate Drive, Streatham.

But residents have branded the proposed development ‘monstrous’ and written to Lambeth councillors asking them to reject the proposals when they go before a planning committee this week.
