The team had the ability to score at most 2 goals in all matches but that was not enough to win the title last season. The team showed no progress to apt their style of game as the season seemed competitive. The team’s attackers and midfielders lacked the ability to penetrate into the defense of their opponents. This was as a result of lack of experience on most of the players as this was the first time they had been engaged in a competitive league.
The team which was once a title contender are currently struggling to make an impact in the youth division. Whiles some players moved on to pursue higher education, others left to join bigger clubs.
The team would have to work on building a defensive wall in their ‘D’ to prevent more goals being scored. They are to also work on their midfield that easily gets broken when under attack by opponents.
Training of new players in the long run would help the team but in the short run hinder the team’s achievement of becoming very competitive.
Let’s hope for the best.
