ELITE YOUTH under-13s, produced a brave performance in the East London League Cup Final, but fell just short against EC1 at AFC Hornchurch's stadium in front of a crowd of around 300.

Elite pulled a goal back with a strike from Shazidur Rahman, but EC1 nicked a decisive fourth goal, before Rahman netted again.
Elite continued to push for the equaliser and two minutes into injury time were awarded a lifeline when an EC1 player handed the ball in the area.
Captain Khairul Amin was forced to retake his spot-kick after netting and missed his second attempt.
