Veteran Lions clinch their second win in a row

[ Veteran ] Bellwood FC 1-3 Shanghai Lions (17 Mar 2013)

Our “Creme de la Creme” Lions had an early game last Sunday at 9:00 AM at waigaqiao. The opponent the Bellewoods FC got a bit scared when the saw so many Lions showing up. Adam made his come back after two years not having played and Matze made his way back into the squad. On top Charles and Nicolas made their debut as a veteran. Dressing room talks are different for the veterans, most of the time its about “How are your knees” is “Your back ok ?” , “How are your kids?” !

From the start we dominated the game and played our usual Lions style with short passes. We saw some brilliant crosses from Thomas one of them straight from the corner flag ending up right into the feet of our oldest lion Yamada, who happened to be our left back…..!! Goals from Nicolas,Thomas and Fred gave us a comfortable 3-0 lead at half time. In the second half we played with only above 35 players and held out strong. The referee gave them a goal which was acceptable as we knew the game was in our pocket. So here we are even the old Lions are going strong and leading the veterans league ! Well done and great spirit on and off the pitch !

This coming weekend we have two massive games on Saturday we play DIB who are second in the SIFL and a win would put us 11 points clear. On Sunday we play Flamenkos a must win to stay in the race for the SPL title ! Please come out to watch and support the Lions in this important games !


Stay focused and train focused!
