The football festival was organised by Team Rohingya, in partnership with Human Aid UK and the Inner London Football League.

A tight final saw Moguls takeaway from Roman Road, Bow beat Shah’s from Warwick 2-1 with Selim and man of the match Mo the goalscorer.

After thanking the tournament sponsors, Riverside Spice restaurant from Colchester and Mojlish takeaway from Chelmsford, tournament co-ordinator Abdul Hussain said: “So many of us combined for a great cause to answer the call of the indigent and neglected.

“We want the Rohingya and all the needy to know that we are here for them.”
