David De Silva hit a brace to help FC Leytonstone get back to winning ways in the East London Barking & Dagenham Sunday League.

The Lemons visited Lucien All Stars looking to get on track again after back-to-back defeats.

Leytonstone started strongly with teenage debutant Qasim Ali opening the scoring before captain Micah Stennett doubled their advantage.

All Stars did hit back before half time, however, after capitalising on a poor mistake by the Lemons.
