SYA Vets clinched the Inner London Football League Division One title with a tense 2-1 win over fellow hopefuls Abohani Vets.

Muhammed Nashir’s side were battling it out with their opponents, London Legends and ELS Vets for top spot, having led the way for most of the campaign.

And having seen Stepney Legends pipped to the Premier Division title by London Tigers, Nashir saw his players respond well as the lively Israel Amadi netted both SYA goals to secure a hard-fought victory and the silverware.

Captain Khalid Ahmed, Sunu Miah, Kabir Miah and Paul Parkinson all impressed for SYA Vets and a delighted Nashir said: “What a difference a season makes! At the end of the last campaign we shed tears of disappointment. Now it’s tears of joy.

“The boys have been amazing throughout and we will now work to consolidate our position in the Premiership.”
