Tower Hamlets managed to steal the bragging rights against their local rivals Sporting Bengal United with a 1-0 victory this weekend.

Kayode Tobun’s first half strike was enough to see off their ground-sharing rivals and pick up three points to remain seventh in the Essex Senior League at Mile End Stadium.

Joint-manager AJ Ashanike revealed it was one of the worst Mile End derbies yet but he was pleased his men stuck to the game plan and came away on top.

“We just managed to get it right again,” he said.

“I was really impressed with the player’s attitudes in the derby.

“We had a game plan and the lads stuck to it and that’s why we won the game.

“Part of that plan was to keep Cody Cameron under wraps and we did exactly that.”

Ashanike admits Bengal are not as strong as previous seasons and it meant the derby was less entertaining.

“Saturday was one of the least interesting derbies in the last four or five years that I’ve been a part of.

“I don’t feel they’re as strong as they were, they had lots of players missing, but so did we and my players just wanted it way more on the day.”

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.
