Some of the younger players from our U19 team got their opportunity to showcase their progress in front of head coach Roger De Sa and assistant coach Ian Taylor.

The likes of Aiden Jenniker, Olwethu Nguye, Noah Sadaoui and Jody February played among the U19’s and led the younger players  with some good performances. The match ended in a 2-1 win to the Urban Warriors.
