Four men are to go on trial at the Old Bailey accused of the murder of aspiring teenage footballer Godwin Lawson.

Godwin, 17, of Enfield, north London, died in March last year after being stabbed in the chest in Amhurst Park, Stamford Hill, north London.

Godwin was at the Oxford United Football and Education Academy and wanted to be a top footballer.

Moise Avorgah, 20, of Tottenham, north London; Daniel Riley, 22, of Holloway, north London; Matthew Lanihun, 20, of Finsbury Park, north London; and Koffi Osimeh, 19, also of Finsbury Park, deny the charge.

They also deny the attempted murders of two other men aged 18 and 20 who were stabbed during the same incident.
