I am delighted to be associated with this charity and become the patron. They do tremendous work in the community with both young and old and are looking to expand their projects. I hope to be apart of it for a long time.
After a long break this year the VCSA Special League team took part in the final games before the summer break.
The team was missing so many key players and we had to do with a make shift team. With the new addition of Jevan who played in defence the team still had quality. The players who usually didn't get much game time before had a great opportunity to shine and they certainly did.
Azimol who played in midfield worked tirelessly in the heat supporting both defence and attack. Azimol surprised everyone by scoring from a direct corner, it was a curler which confused the opposition goal keeper. Jevan who was immense in the back and no seem to go pass him and if they did they had Shahin to deal with. Wobi was ruthless in front of goal and had the referee applauding him for some of the goals he scored.
The team went to win 6 games and not concede a single goal but that came to an end when we played Charlton FC who scored two past us and were the eventual winners on the day.
The winners and runners up of each stage were presented their medals and trophies by the Mayor of Greenwich.
Coming runners up to such a great team was a great achievement considering the players we had missing. The tournament will be in September and we should have the likes of CJ, Ryan, Salam and Arif returning.
