Muhammad Noorani signed off for the season with two goals this morning.

Whilst it is always interesting to face teams from overseas in friendly match, the scoreline in this morning’s friendly against Serbian visitors, Idijoti Belosvecki 9/11 was without doubt the least important consideration for the management team.

With Saturday’s title showdown with The Tiny Spacemen looming, ensuring the squad will be at maximum possible strength far outweighed the 6-2 scoreline today.

“We never meant to play the first team in this match”, admitted Leoš Loos, “that was an error on our part, but fortunately not a costly one as far as injuries goes”.

Andrew Cleary and Muhammad Noorani both helped themselves to braces, with Brook Street’s other goals coming from Leoš and an Emanuel Bohucký spot-kick as the home side turned on the style in front of over 3,200 fans.

“We were slack at the back again and that’s not good enough”, complained Leoš. “We’ll have to be far sharper on Saturday, as we’ll be facing a far better side”.

He continued, “We switched off and it cost us goals again, just as it did on Saturday. A repeat this Saturday could mean another season in this Division which is not good enough for this Club”.

Meanwhile, following the game, winger Liam Christie was paraded as the latest graduate of the Academy to be called up to the senior side.

“We’ve been keeping tabs on both Liam and midfielder Lachlan MacKinnon who will be joining the senior side next week, and I’ve been impressed with both of them”.

He continued, “Liam is lightning fast and Lachlan has a maturity beyond his years. Both have bags of talent and will be excellent additions to the senior squad”.

The two youngsters will make their public bow at half-time on Saturday.
