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.
