Team win Tower Hamlets tournament for fifth time
Seven Mills kept their cool to win the Tower Hamlets Fathers Football tournament on penalties.
The established 8-a-side event, organised by Ambassadors Football, included 10 teams and took place at Stepney Astroftuf.
Participating schools included Seven Mills, Smithy, Redlands, John Scurr, Marion Richardson, Globe, George Greens, Biglands and two from Cubbitt Town.
And after the final between Smithy and Seven Mills had ended goalless in normal time – after Seven Mills won 2-0 in the group phase – the penalty shoot-out was deadlocked at 3-3 when Abdul Sabur stepped up to win it for Seven Mills.
