The first piece of silverware for Welnix ! Slowly, deliberately to the big prize

The first piece of silverware for Welnix ! Slowly, deliberately to the big prizeThe biggest name in Indian football – Bhaichung Bhutia – in the crowd today, on the track and against us possibly in the final

The 3-0 win for the boys was admittedly against the weakest Opposition (A Shillong Selection, which might explain the light 8,000 crowd) so far but adjusting to the fast run of the ball on the artificial pitch was a big challenge for both teams, especially having just come from a pretty puggy track in Imphal.

Once again 7 of the apprentices (Justin Gully’s injury isn’t quite right yet) were given game time with Fenton, Solomons and Boyd in the starting lineup. Jeremy Brockie again displayed that he is the master of cool in front of the goalmouth scoring another 3 goals. At 7 goals to his name in just 2 outings you could say we have a greedy one on our hands.

All in all it’s a happy camp and the purpose of the tour – to integrate our eight apprentices into the Phoenix squad and for them to be assured this opportunity is theirs for the taking.
