He also played and scored in the Velocity Cup Final against Potters Bar Town in that same season, resulting in Aveley being crowned cup champions with a 3-0 victory at Parkside.

At the start of his career, Vaivada played for Tower Hamlets in the Southern Counties East Football League, before signing for Margate in January 2022. During this season the young talent made 25 appearances and scored 4 goals.
