Emdad Rahman: Beaumont FC proudly holds the crown of the Best Bangladeshi team in the UK after winning a showpiece tournament at Bartlett Park.
The UK Bangladeshi Championship was hosted by the Bangladesh Football Association (BFA) and teams from Oldham, Birmingham, Essex and London participated in the invitation only competition.
Beaumont topped their early stage group to reach the final where they met Birmingham – a team they had previously defeated in the same final in 2005.
Beaumont took command of the final from the off with Shahed Ahmed and Dobir Miah's domination of midfield paying dividends. Midway through the first half, Shahed's 30 yard low drive hit the back of the net to put his team ahead.
Beaumont secured the Championship when Thanvir Chowdhury cleverly flicked the ball over two defenders before volleying a wonder goal into the top corner.
Shahed Ahmed unsurprisingly received the player of the tournament award.
Manager Mamun Choudhury said: “It’s been a great day of football. The spirit and camaraderie between the participating teams has been super, whilst the fair play and standard of football has been impressive.
“I’m chuffed for my team. After playing Birmingham in the same final in 2005, we knew we were up against very worthy opponents, so to repeat the trick is extra satisfying for us."
