Rival clubs vote to end suspension

Tower Hamlets are set to return to Essex Senior League action at Greenhouse tomorrow (Saturday).

The Mile End Stadium-based club have been suspended from playing since December, but rival clubs voted in favour of keeping them in the competition.

Tower Hamlets officials breathed a sigh of relief at the EGM held at Bowers & Pitsea’s Len Salmon Stadium.

And a statement from club chairman Mohammed Nurul Hoque said: “I would like to thank the management committee, our friends, families and our sponsors and member clubs for their support.

“We are delighted with the outcome of the voting process and we are looking forward to fulfilling the remainder of our fixtures for this season.”

Tower Hamlets have not played since a 2-1 home defeat against leaders Haringey Borough on December 13.

They have slipped down the table to 16th place during their period of inactivity, with 19 points from 19 games, but will look to start climbing back up the standings with victory against lowly Greenhouse.

Tower Hamlets are set to host Stansted at Mile End Stadium on Wednesday (7.45pm).

Fixtures, Saturday: Clapton v Waltham Forest, FC Romania v Barking, Greenhouse v Tower Hamlets, Sporting Bengal v Haringey Borough, Takeley v Ilford.

Tuesday: Bowers v Newham, Haringey Borough v Ilford (cup).

Wednesday: Tower Hamlets v Stansted.
