Bear and I made our choices as to what players will be selected for the first side in the first league match
of this young season. With so many things happening, Dominic Prestia being activated on the Injured Reserve list
with a torn quad muscle and Ahmad needing to visit his mother in Houston, these are just two players out for the match. But I can tell you that the others have stepped up their game and I think they are more than capable of playing up.
We made our announcement to the players before practice, and then they went off to discuss who they want to lead them this year. I don’t know what to vote was, but John Bradshaw was voted to lead this team. Vince Dutton will be the Vice Captain. Two very good leaders and we’ll see how they and their team-mates respond to this.
Personally I think they’ll respond quite well and lead them on to some well deserved victories.
For Saturday’s match with UD, we’ll be playing on Field 6, which is the last field on the left as you’re walking into the soccer complex. Kick off is scheduled for 6:00pm and the lads will be showing up about4:30 to help set up the field before the game.
Looking forward to seeing everyone out there cheering the lads on to a great game, win or lose because wrespect our team-mates, we respect our opponents and we respect the game.
