Bari finished the season in emphatic style to complete a treble-winning campaign.

Having earlier won the Ford Sunday League cup and the league, Nathan Ashton scored four as Bari ran riot.

Ashton opened the scoring early on with a curling effort in the top corner, before Saleem Bhuttawala rose highest to head home Ikram Adam’s cross.

Eljay Worrell and Ashton scored again before the break for a 4-0 lead, and the latter doubled his tally for the match with the first two after the interval.

Mo Kidia enjoyed a solid performance in the middle of the park and deservedly notched the seventh before Arif Merchant scored his first of the season from the penalty spot.

Manager Imran Merchant said: “The whole Bari club deserve massive praise as the season has gone really well, winning five trophies in total.

“I also want to say a big thank you to our sponsors ‘Letting International’ who have helped us financially and been supportive through our progress for the last three years.”
