Team take Sonali Othith title on busy day
Golden Moon were crowned Sonali Othith Master champions are a frenzied day of football, friendship and fun.
The biggest shocks of the tournament saw Mohammedan, winners of the last three Masters tournaments, and last year’s finalists Shadwell being knocked out in the group stages.
In the semi-finals Golden Moon beat Sylhet FC 1-0, while London Tigers overcame MK Galacticos by the same scoreline to take their place in the final.
A tense final saw man-of-the-tournament Ruhul Islam score a spectacular winner for Towsif Jahan’s men to take the trophy home for Golden Moon.
