Elite Youth won the Osmani Trust's Football In The Community Project (FITC) under-14s football tournament at Mulberry Girls School.

The football proved to be a very high standard; however, one team looked very strong from the start.

Elite Youth reached the final without loosing a game scoring over 30 goals on the way. And their opposition in the final were local rivals Shadwell YO.

Both teams played some good football and due to the strong defences were unable to break the dead lock in the first half. Elite Youth's strength and experience showed in the second half as they caught Shadwell out with a quick free kick from which lead to Elite Youth's first goal. As Shadwell tried to find an equaliser Elite Youth scored a second goal to win the match 2-0.

Sana Miah tournament organiser said: "It was wonderful to see so many young people from different backgrounds playing together in this great friendly atmosphere where the game is main focus not ones colour, appearance, ethnicity or background."

The FITC project which is the only project in the country to be ambassadors for Kick It Out spread the message of peace and harmony through sports.

Abdal Ahmed, Football Development Manger at Osmani Trust said: "I always enjoying delivering these workshops, not only because it's a topic close to my heart but also as it give these young people a platform to express their views and experiences.
