Friends FC have been celebrating after winning the annual Sonali Othith Indoor Masters Cup.

The six-team tournament for over-40s was played at the Mulberry Leisure Centre over a five-week period and included Shadwell, Poplar, Shagor, Brothers and Weavers.

Friends beat off stiff competition from Shadwell and 2016 champions Poplar to win comfortably by six points and captain Kamal Chowdhury was delighted to come out on top, saying: “We played plenty of good football throughout and on the balance of overall play and goals scored I would certainly say we were the best team and fully deserve the title for 2017.

“Well done to all who played and I’m looking forward to next year.”

Jamal Uddin, chairman of Sonali Othith, added: “It has been a really entertaining six weeks of action with lots of memorable action. Congratulations to Friends FC who finish as deserved champions.”

Friends: Luthfur Rahman, Makbul Hussain, Jamil Ahmed, Masum Ahmed, Nasim Ahmed, Akbal Ahmed, Muzakir Miah, Abdul Mahid, Nazmul Hoque, Kamal Chowdhury.
