Weavers Football Club have been crowned Sonali Othith Masters champions for the second time.

The Whitechapel based team went unbeaten all day and got past a number of teams in the group stages to reach the last eight.

They then made it past both Docklands and Bromley to make it to the final.

A goalless stalemate against Workhouse FC in the final led to a penalty shootout, with Paolo Da Graca driving home the winning spot-kick to seal it 3-2 for Weavers.

Weavers player manager Atiqur Rahman said: "This is the second time we have become champions with an unbeaten record.
