I have learned many things from a people with a wealth of knowledge in the game operating around the globe.

LAST GAME OF THE SEASON 3-2 WIN...5TH PLACE FINISH

At the weekend we ended the season with a morale boosting win over Eastern, winning the game 3-2 in the latter stages, we finished the season in 5th place. We reached two semi finals but all felt we could have done better. On a personal note it was good to be back in Hong Kong and I am looking forward to helping us improve in all departments next season. At the end of every season it is important to rest, relax and recharge the batteries.

KC Southern V Kitchee SC 4-1 defeat

After a run of excellent results we lost 4-1 at home to Kitchee in a game which could have been very different has we converted some chances at crucial moments in the game. Kitchee punished us in the second half and showed why they have the best squad in the league. We will need to take the positives from it and move on ahead of a crucial game next week against Tai Po in the FA Cup semi final at the Mong Kok stadium.

NARROW LATE DEFEAT AGAINST TAI PO FC 1-0

Yesterday afternoon we narrowly lost away to Tai Po FC 1-0 in a very closely fought game, we created several clear cut chances but unfortunately could not finish off the game and ultimately got punished in the 88th minute, its a frustrating period for all associated with the club at the moment but we are confident we can turn it around and finish the season on a positive note. 
We now switch attention to the Sapling Cup and the game against Pegasus next weekend.

2-2 DRAW WITH PEGAGUS

Yesterday we drew 2-2 with Pegasus at the Hong Kong Stadium, after a dominant first half display leading 1-0 we came out the second half in good spirit only to lose a soft equaliser. We showed good character to immediately get the lead but unfortunately deep into stoppage time we let the lead slip to draw the game 2-2. We are unbeaten in two games but looking back should have two wins from these games, we must remain positive and believe in ourselves that the wins will come and we will start to creep up the table.

We take plenty of positives from the game ahead of another tough game next weekend at the Hong Kong Stadium against high flying Pegasus Fc.

Last night we played an excellent game but unfortunately lost 1-0 to Eastern Fc in the latter stages of a hotly contested game, their was a heated atmosphere during the game with tempers running high on both sides, we must dust ourselves down, regroup and find some momentum in the league. There is still three quarters of the season to go so we have time to go on a good run of form.

0-1 NARROW DEFEAT TO TAI PO

We lost 0-1 at the weekend to a very good Tai Po side, it was a very frustrating afternoon for us at both ends of the field.

There was some very good individual performances from the players, however we could not break down a well drilled Tai Po team. I would like to wish them all the best for the rest of the season.

Yesterday we lost away to home in a very disappointing performance, after two back to back wins we must now go back to the training ground and rectify the mistakes and try to bounce back in the next game in a few weeks time.

1ST LEAGUE GAME. NARROW 1-0 LOSS

We opened the season with a home game against Pegasus FC at the Aberdeen Sports Ground in scorching heat at 230pm. The team competed very well and were very unfortunate to have 3 genuine penalty appeals turned down as well as two players sent off which changed the complexion of the game. It was a hugely frustrating afternoon but we must dust ourselves down, regroup and prepare for the next game after the International break which again is at home. It was nice to be back in competitive action in the Hong Kong Premier League, there is still a very long way to go this season so we will remain positive and keep working hard everyday to get some wins under out belt.
