It was great to be back on the pitch last Saturday ! The heavy rain made the pitch difficult to play on for our friendly game against the Krauts. As usual we started slow and the Krauts tested Radouane a few times. Soon we picked up the pace and started to play good football. We had good movement by our two youngsters Chris and Arnault as they give the Krauts defenders a hard time. It was 4-0 at half time. In the second half we conceded a penalty and the Krauts scored one more by their striker Stas but the Lions kept playing football until the very end and it ended at an 8-2 win. Three goals by Azz and 3 by Arnault and 2 by Benji.
On Sunday unfortunately the game got cancelled due to the excessive rains !
