Manager: Alberto Ferri
Captain: Kailan Perez
Top Scorer 17/18: Juan Llaves Sanchez (6)
The start of the 18/19 Season is upon us and much has happened since United’s last official match left them at the gates of Europe. Manolo left the club and Lucas Cazorla takes the helm for his first game as manager. Several players are in line for debuts as the squad has also seen somewhat of an overhaul. Yet the core of the team is there as Chino, Erin, Bosio, Aymen, Dani, Carrasco and Negrette are ready to lead the squad into the new challenge.
Lions for their part have lost last season’s top scorer Llaves to Gibraltar Phoenix and veteran Al Greene to St Joseph’s. In come former United players Jamie Bosio and Kaylan Rumbo, both from FC Olympique in the Second Division, and David Gallardo from Phoenix. Yet United know that games against Lions are tough encounters with the redoubtable Perez and Breakspear at the back. Kick off is Tuesday at 20:30 and boy are we glad that football is back!!!
Vi et Animo, Ad Victoriam
