A big congratulations to our local football team Tooting and Mitcham FC, who beat AFC Wimbledon to win the London Senior Cup.
On a hot and sunny bank holiday Monday, goals by Jake Rose and Dontai Stewart led to a 2-1 win against a strong Wimbledon side. It was also a great performance from Billy Brown, Ahkeem Belford, Daniel Williams and goalkeeper Gary Ross.
As Adam Best wrote in his post-match commentary, “Jake Rose, as we’ve come to expect, finished it like James Bond dispatching a foe; calmly, suavely - a tailored assassin in his craft.”
This was undoubtedly a time of celebration, as could be heard from pub gardens across Tooting and Mitcham! Tooting and Mitcham FC continue to be an inspiration to young players in the local community and a source of much needed celebration at this time.
