Shoreditch crowned division two champions
PUBLISHED: 12:00 21 November 2017
Shoreditch football club have made their mark in their debut season in the Inner London Football League by storming to the Division Two championship.
Sayed Miah’s men controlled the League from the beginning and the winning formula was based very much on a measly back line which conceded the least number of goals in all three divisions.
The team itself is made up of a group of friends who used to play 11-a-side football together in their youth and reunited to play football once a week.
The Reds also overcame adversity after midfielder Mohammed Abu Thahir (Shahin) suffered a heart attack at Mabley Green in the season.
Shoreditch wrapped up the League with a couple of matches to spare and in the penultimate game it was poetic that man of the match Shahin returned to the fold to inspire a 1-0 win over Riverside B with a last minute winner from top scorer Abdul Salam.
