ACE O5 FC of Tower Hamlets claimed their third title in four years in the Inner London Football League.
They won 13 of 15 matches played, drawing one and losing one, scoring 63 goals and conceding just 15.
And having collected 40 points they were awarded the title when the season was cut short by the coronavirus pandemic.
Chaka Barnett topped the scoring charts with 19 goals in 11 games, with ACE recording a double over Westferry FC (5-0, 4-1) and claiming notable wins over Reachout (7-2), Stepney (9-0), Burdett (4-0), London Sportif (4-0) and a thumping 15-0 win over Redbridge Raiders.
They reached the cup final too, beating Stepney, Reachout and London Jaguars and were due to play East London Kings FC at Leyton Orient’s Breyer Group Stadium in May, but are awaiting a new date for the showdown.
