Beaumont enjoy cup success

Emdad Rahman
Mile End based Beaumont FC have become the first team in the Bangladeshi Football Association (BFA) Summer League Cup history to win the cup three times in succession.

After the successes of 2009 and 2010, Beaumont played against arch Rivals Stepney FC at a packed Mile End Stadium in front of 300 people, including Ohid Ahmed, Tower Hamlets Deputy Mayor, Chair of the Council Mizan R Chaudhury, and Ward Councillor Abdal Ullah.

The impressive link up play of the Beaumont forwards paid dividends as they took the lead. A succession of slick passes saw Shahed Ahmed give Mamun Choudhury’s side a goal advantage.

Stepney regrouped and equalised, Shadu's exquisite pass was threaded between two Beaumont defenders to allow Ben to hit home.  

Beaumont upped the pace and talismanic forward Javier Riveria half volleyed his side back ahead. Two superb saves from Beaumont keeper Jayduz kept his side’s noses ahead, and ten minutes from time Riveria pounced to complete a cup final brace and Beaumont’s third.

There were mass celebrations at the end of the game. The Deputy Mayor and Chair of the council awarded each team with trophies and medals. Beaumont FC manager Mamun Choudhury said: “It was a pressure cooker of the game. The score flatters us because Stepney matched us in all departments. The difference was the finishing and on that score we were superior on the night. I’m very happy for the boys and our fans.”
