We started on a rainy Saturday morning with all the boys ready for the game. We took kick off, and started well with an early chance but it was just over the bar. A lapse in concentration led to the first goal. We carried on creating chances, however they scored against the run of play, and we conceded two more before the end of the half.

Half time

In the second half we came out flying and dominated the first 20 minutes. The opposition’s experience came in to play, and they managed to turn it around and found the scoresheet a few more times. The highlight of the game was that we had some good moves and when we were able to keep the ball and play football, we were the better team.

As the first match of the league we definitely have positives which we can strengthen. The team as a whole can improve and personally I believe we can do very well in this league.

Final score 7-0

Man of the match: Irfaan Kanji
