Osmaninagar celebrated their triumph in the Greater Sylhet Upazila Cup with an open top bus tour of Tower Hamlets. 

Osmaninagar player Repon Chowdhury is the only captain to have lifted the Greater Sylhet Cup since its inception. 

He said, 'I have played football for decades and won so much silverware but this is an altogether different kind of special.'

Midfielder Rashid Ali added, 'I too have won every trophy at this level but this ranks with the greatest moments of my career.'

Osmaninagar manager Mamun Chowdhury said, 'Our volunteers, sponsors and our fans have played just as great a part in this fairytale as our players. They are the backbone of our team and I hope they enjoyed this open top bus tour.'
