Kentish Town’s triumphant team were also celebrating following their semi-final win over Independent FC in the London FA Cup.
Reece McCluskey opened the scoring before Patrick Morley scored the goal-of-the-game with a 25-yard screamer.
Solly Hamilton also got on the scoresheet to wrap up a resounding 3-0 victory, and set up a final against either Edmonton Youth or Clapham Rangers next month.
Manager TJ O’Leary, who also coaches Chelsea Ladies, said he couldn’t be happier after seeing his side earn a deserved place in the final.
“I’m very proud of all the boys. The toughest thing for me was choosing which 10 players from the group to leave out of the semi-final.
“We’ve got such a strong squad, and obviously we couldn’t play everyone.
“This team has now remained unbeaten for over two years, so expectations were high. They have delivered time and time again.
“They are a great bunch of players to work with and I love every training session.
“Everyone at the club is looking forward to the boys’ showcasing their talent in the final. I will be proud of them whatever the outcome is.”

“They haven’t lost a game in the league for over two-and-a-half years.
“The most impressive thing for me is the football they play, which is very high-tempo attacking with combinations that are way beyond their years.”
