Summer League Cup 2018 Quarter and Semi Finals day was full of drama.
The Top 4 in the Premiership clashed in the Quarter Finals - Bromley vs BYM and Aberfeldy vs Soul Youth. Neither game disappointed!
Bromley went up 3-1 against BYM but a last 5 minute comeback by BYM took the game to penalties which Bromley won.
The Aberfeldy vs Soul Youth was just as tense as Aberfeldy came from behind to lead 2-1. However Soul Youth were awarded a last minute penalty!! Aberfeldy were handed two red cards as a result of their protests. The penalty was tucked away leading to another shootout! Aberfeldy FC came out on top as Soul Youth main man, Ashaan, scuffed his penalty onto the post in the final kick!
The first upset of the day came when Championship team SYA defeated Premiership outfit ACE 05 FC 2-1. FC Brick Lane won the all Championship fixture against PYO FC 2-1.
The Semi Finals were just as dramatic as Aberfeldy FC played out a thriller against FC Brick Lane to win 4-3. But the biggest shock of the Cup came in the final game of the day. It was Premiership Champions and league leaders Bromley By Bow FC against SYA. SYA equalised late in the second half to take the tie to penalties after extra time!! 9 of the 10 penalties were scored. Imran (Mini) was the unfortunate Bromley By Bow FC player to miss his penalty as he smashed it over the bar!! SYA advance to the Final to play Aberfeldy FC!! ⚽ #BFAUK#BFA#SummerLeague#BanglaLeague#LBTH#TowerHamlets#Grassroots#OnTheBall#SundayLeague#SportingBengal#SportingFoundation ⚽
We had the privilege of hosting a Street Pastors commissioning service for Betsy and Curtis at Shoreditch Tab this morning who will patrolling with @THStreetPastors on Fridays. Well done and many blessings.
Winner of 'Best Historical Intervention' The Water Tank, a conversion of the former tank space on top of the Grade II* listed Keeling House.
This space is now a light-filled one-bedroom duplex penthouse uses sandblasted glass louvres to prevent overlooking and overheating whilst flooding the space with natural light. Inside, bespoke furniture was created to maximise on the limited storage space, including a raised bed with a child’s bed at one end, a built-in wardrobe underneath and deep drawers within the steps - see more in the free download of the #DontMoveImprove 2018 magazine!

Sometimes the term “homemade” is used too glibly, but when it comes to our Elderflower Cordial you know you’re drinking local! 💛 There is only a 3 week Spring window for elderflower growing - our flowers are never frozen but handpicked, made and bottled on site the same day. When it’s gone, it’s gone until Spring 2019! #TheBeehive#SupportLocal
Second Shot (Bethnal Green Station)
If East London is best known as the beating tale-tell heart of the city, I often think of Bethnal Green as the its extraordinary legs, reaching to Hackney via Victoria Park, and stretching as far as to the City after a twenty-minute walk through Shoreditch. This area is running in multiple directions, leading the city to its transformation. Although one of East's priciest locations, Bethnal is still struggling gentrification's scalpel. Second Shot's ethos is based on the questioning of what sustainable urban development should mean. Just off the subway station, the café oozes this East London local foam. It's the place where someone's dog ends up licking your knee, your best friend breastfeeds and hipsters are not irritating rich kids but creative youths with an acid sense of humour and a very cool hat. It's also Bethnal's more consciously local coffee spot, aiming for quality and exceptional customer care. The company is involved in ongoing social projects against homelessness, providing free coffee for people at risk of social exclusion and offering them training and work.
Even if it's a tiny place it's atmosphere is built upon an ongoing flow of busy take-away regulars and an idle drive to take a seat, to take part. Even when, like me, you're a lonely caffeine taster who takes her laptop everywhere just to look busy while sipping a flat white, this place makes you feel like you're sharing your cup. They also pick good nu jazz tracks which somehow match the mood of the place, improvisation and improvisation and recreation. The coffee creamy, mild and bitter, not your daily gasoline-purpose filter cup before work but quite more like the one your mom will prepare. "Care" is the word, and so is "home".
