Stepney FC say goodbye to the Haileybury Centre

Stepney Football club bid a brief goodbye as they played their very last game at the old Haileybury Club. The venue has served and hosted the local community since the 1960's. 

Coaches Afazul Hoque, Ripon Hussain and Emdad Rahman oversaw the final game and medals where distributed by Tower Hamlets Mayor Lutfur Rahman and Guildmore Developers who will now build a new state of the art community hub alongside residential homes. 

Stepney Coach Ripon Hussain said: "It's sad to lose a place which has given the team such fine memories but Mayor Lutfur Rahman and the developers will hopefully in a years time provide us with the best facilities of this kind in London. 

"We are really excited about the future."
