London Tigers were crowned Inner London Football League Premier Division champions after pipping Stepney on goal difference.

Stepney went into their last match with third-placed G7 with a two-point lead, as Tigers took on Mohammedan on the next pitch.

And Emdad Rahman’s Stepney – the long-time league leaders – struck first through Mufi Uddin, before G7 levelled.

Mams Uddin’s men then killed the game off and Tigers ran out 4-0 winners to clinch the title for the fifth time. Captain Abdul Wahid said: “It’s been a rollercoaster season. We’ve worked hard to retain our fitness and match sharpness and it’s paid off.

“The vets league is one of the most competitive around. I can’t remember the last time we had an easy game.”

Rahman added: “This has been a bitter sweet season. The senior team were relegated but lifted the BFA Somali Cup and the veterans, it wasn’t meant to be.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
