After the success of the inaugural season of the VIP league, which was won by Academy FC. We quickly followed it by starting the second season on Friday 12th May. We started the new season with 7 teams all competing for the VIP Title, the teams are listed below:
- FC PLANET VETS
- PF EXPATS FC
- ACADEMY VETS
- PA-YAK FC
- RAK-CHANG FC
- NATO FC
- INTER ME VAN FC
Week 9 Results & Reports:
6.00pm Inter Me Van FC v Academy FC: This game was awarded as a 0-0 draw as neither team could fulfill the fixture by the scheduled kick off time.
7.00pm FC Planet Vets v PF Expats: The second game of the day was a mini-derby that was a really tough game for both teams. PF Expats took the initiative and an early lead, which they double midway through the 1st half. Unfortunately they could not see out the half and Planet Vets pulled 1 back to go into 2-1 down. The second half was evenly matched, although Planet Vets were more on the front foot as they searched for the equalizer. As tiredness set in on the Expats team, FC Planet Vets took advantage and scored an equalizer with only 4 minutes to go. They then took all 3 points with a last minute winner to break their rivals hearts.
8.00pm Nato FC v Rak-Chang FC: The spoils were evenly shared in the last game of the night as 1-1 was a fair result. In what was another evenly contested game both teams scored midway through the 1st half, but could not make they chances created in the 2nd count. Both teams were equally guilty of being wasteful in front of goal.
This league is due to last 12 weeks (unless re-arranged games involved) with each team playing Home & Away fixtures. As we have already seen from the first few weeks, it has been an extremely fun and entertaining start and as we start the 2nd period of games, it’s still all up for grabs.
Although all of the players in VIP league are over 35, it has still been very competitive and physical. But as is the nature of the league teams always end the game with handshakes, before heading into the clubhouse bar to enjoy some cold beers and a few laughs.
The league is schedule to be played every Friday from 6.00pm or 6.30pm at Planet Football Stadium. So why not come down and see yesterday’s stars (as some would have you believe) re-live their glory years on our new 4G pitch. Its great fun and an amazing atmosphere!
