Manor Youth celebrated a successful 2016/17 season at their awards night at Forest Gate’s BITE College.

The team landed a Newham Youth League and cup double and were runners-up at the Young Stars Showcase event and Passmore Edwards Cup.

And they began the current campaign by winning the Peter Davies Memorial Cup and Kitroom Direct Cup.

Shafiq Shipkoylee was named player of the year, as Taher Mahmood took the golden boot for his 36 goals in 52 games.

Juned Ahmed was the manager’s player of the year, while Abaan Patel took the most improved prize, Ahsan Ali was coach of the year and Danial McGuinness received a special recognition award.

Departing head of youth Hafiz Ahmed said: “These boys have worked tirelessly all year and deserve their big awards.

“I want to thank my backroom staff, the parents and local community for getting behind the boys. I leave with great memories.”
