Sharrow United clinch promotion

16 Apr 2007 / News

Sharrow United ensured promotion to the First Division of the Meadowhall Sheffield Sunday Football League with a convincing 3-0 away win at Brunsmeer Athletic.

Second-half strikes from Ifty Afzal, Oday Ibrahim and skipper Torick Akram eventually saw the Sharrow boys run out convincing winners. The result means that Sharrow can now count themselves as one of the top 30 sides playing in Sheffield sunday football - no mean achievement considering their humble beginnings in season 2000-1.

Manager Mukid Khan has successfully built on the solid foundations laid by former bosses Maqsood Akhtar and Abid Rahim, supported off the field by the tireless Kevin Titterton, who has been an ever-present for the past seven seasons.

Promotion was particularly sweet for two Sharrow 'veterans', Kamran Khan and Keith Ward, who have returned to the team this season following lengthy absence due to serious injury and illness.
