Tower Hamlets: We will definitely be back hungrier and stronger next season

Tuesday 30th March 2021

TOWER HAMLETS admit it was a tough Covid-19 disruptive first season in the Southern Counties East Football League Premier Division.


The club switched from the Essex Senior League on the back of a groundshare deal at Phoenix Sports’ Mayplace ground in Barnehurst and struggled at the foot of the table, having collected two points from their 13 league games before the campaign was brought to a halt due to the Covid-19 health pandemic.

However, Tower Hamlets have produced some technical players who have been signed by higher-league sides and the club vow to improve matters out on the pitch when the new season kicks off in August.

“As we all know the 2020-21 season has come to an end due to the current lockdown situation,” said a club statement.

“It’s been tough but we have also learnt a lot this season for us at Tower Hamlets FC as we moved to the SCEFL from the Essex Senior League.

“We may not have had the season we hoped for, however, we succeeded in different aspects.

“We once again have fielded the youngest squad in the league with the whole squad aged under 23 bar one player.

“This has led us to produce even more young prospects in Denilson Carvalho being signed for Dartford, Benas Vaivada to Nowotaniec LKS Cosmos and allowing the young star in Deese Kasinga once again to showcase his talent.

“We also handed out many debuts to a lot of our 16-17 year olds coming through from our college programme we deliver at Tower Hamlets FC.

“After producing the likes of Ali Omar to Barnsley, Yoan Marc-Olivier to FC Istogu and many others to steps above in the non-league system last season in 2019-20 we can proudly say we are continuing to give back to the community and help deliver and produce the next crop of young talent.

“We will definitely be back hungrier and stronger next season.”
