PUNJAB UNITED were the first winners of the Stephen Timms Cup held at London APSA last weekend.
Eight teams took part in the event named after the East Ham MP in Redbridge, with Wolverhampton-based side Punjab United the winners, after they beat Newham side Forest Gate.
The beaten finalists won all three of their group matches to set up a sem-final clash with Asianos.
Troy Hewitt netted the only strike, as they earned a 1-0 win, to take on Punjab, who had netted five against Walthamstow Redstar.
