It was a revenge for Overland, which had to endure a 5-0 drubbing at the feet of Brownstown United in the preliminary round.

Overland had the last laugh, ending the tournament in glory taking the champions’ trophy, medals and a cash prize of $1500.

Brownstown United gained a trophy and $1000.

Overland got to the final, beating Owia United 2-0 in their semi-finals, while Brownstown got past Mount Grenan 3-0 in the other semis.

Both Owia United and Mount Grenan earned themselves $250 each as the losing semi-finalists.

And, crowning off the 2018/2019 league, was the premier division cup final.

Securing the $500 cash prize for this title was Chapmans, who saw off World XI, 2-0.

Saied Dabreo netted on the half hour mark and Hosni Chandler added the second five minutes later.

But it was All Stars which had a double take, winning the premier division title, as well as the Community Shield knock out, gaining $3000 and $500, respectively.

The 2018/ 2019 North East League, also included a Futsal sports evangelism competition; a women’s division, along with two development divisions (U11 and U-13) and a U-17 division.
