Intermediate Boys Football
St Christopher’s Intermediate Boys Football Team swept all before them once again as they retained their League title with a 100% winning record.
Despite being tested by a number of well-organised and defensive teams, the squad overcame these challenges with great maturity and discipline. Ali Mattar replicated his goal scoring heroics of the previous season, netting in every game for an incredible total of sixteen in just six games. He was ably supported by a superb season from Xander Balet, who played all over the pitch and contributed a healthy return of four goals, predominantly from the wing. In midfield, Kieran Hanahoe and Mohamed Fazli pulled the strings, and were combative in the tackle and creative and dynamic in possession. They were capably supported by Sean Chapman, Jordan Baker, Adam Shamma, Sam Janahi and Mustafa Zafar. A defence marshalled admirably by Naz Yousef proved miserly to even the toughest opposition attack, and Hasan Dailami, Callum Rennie, Bradley Altman, Arnau Elias and goalkeepers Ethan ‘the Cat’ Murray and Jassim ‘the Kitten’ AlSaegh were invaluable contributors to a fine defensive performance. St Chris Intermediate Boys also ended the season as BSME Football Champions, having captured that title in November.
Senior Boys Football
Quite simply, the best Senior Boys Football season ever!!
After a very long season which saw training beginning in September, and winning the Unity Cup in February, the Senior Boys knew that victory against local rivals IKNS in their final game of the season would see them crowned Champions for the third season running and by doing so, complete an unprecedented League and Cup double, a feat never previously achieved by the Senior Boys Football Team. After a nervous start from a team clearly feeling the effects of their Dubai triumph the weekend previously, we slowly began to find our feet and to show signs of the standard of football that had seen us be so successful during the season. A final, victorious score of 4:1 confirmed a notable League victory. Congratulations to a team full of character, heart and no little talent. As ever, they were a pleasure to work with and for those leaving players, certainly a season of unsurpassed memories! ~ Mr Pearce and Mr Wortley
