East Ham club collect more silverware

East Ham’s Flanders under-11s will enjoy their summer break after winning more silverware this season.

Echo League Cup winners as under-nines and league champions as under-10s, they maintained their fine form with another cup final win.

A fine all-round team display proved vital in a 2-1 success against Dagenham United Clarets, with Julius Sabo converting a cross from Brandon Andrews to spark wild scenes of celebration.

And they rounded off their campaign with an emphatic 11-1 victory over EMH Merlins to clinch the runners-up spot in Division B.

Manager and head coach Jeff Merrifield said: “The boys have done themselves proud, given the faat they’ve played three seasons and won two cups and a league title.

“It has been a spectacular journey for the boys who are learning and adapting quickly. Hats off to the boys and their parents.”

Coach Gary Andrews added: “The boys have shown they can dig in deep at the highest level while playing some attractive football.”

Flanders are looking to add players and new coaches to all their squads, ranging from under-seven to under-13 and anyone interested should contact Jeff Merrifield on 07709 758661.
