The Friday night Casuals were first up again last weekend. They were looking to get their first three points of the season against the enigmatic OGS, whom have the ability to beat anyone when they’re on song. In emphatic style, Casuals smashed 6 in to the back of the net, with a double hattrick, one a piece for Joe Cadden and Nick Verill, respectively. Taking Casuals top of the league, for one night at least.
TGA Rangers took on 1 TM Latini at Turf City for a 3pm kick off. Both teams keen to kick on from their opening day victories, meant that this was likely to be a tense affair. TGA Rangers struck first with an opportunistic goal from Aaron Agius-Clancy. 1TM Latini, pressed and probed, searching for the equaliser, but the Rangers defence stood resolute, meaning gaps opened up for the counter. A good flowing move, allowed Tom Ruffles to pop up with one and double Rangers lead, notching up his first goal for the illuminous greens.
The newly formed German Swiss All Stars, had their first outing of the season against last season’s league runners up, Gaelic Lions. Not an easy start for any team to play the Lions, let alone a newly formed team. However, the script was torn up and the GSAS battled to collect a hard earned 3 points, and in the process making a statement, that they will be very competitive this season. Arnaud Houles grabbing the winner.
The 5pm Kick off at Turf City, saw FC Nippon take on Aioli PM. Opening day defeats for both, meant that this was likely a must win game, to kick start their campaigns. Aioli took the spoils in the end, and with it a monkey off their back, with a 2-1 victory and momentum going into their next fixture. No doubt Nippon will bounce back.
Some interesting fixtures this weekend, sees all teams in action. Good luck to everyone involved!
