Stags win the legal league plate final!
On the first weekend back in Hong Kong following the Stags’ Phuket tour 2017 and following our league win, we faced a keen Young Guns side in the Plate Final. Initial concerns of the game being called off due to torrential rain subdued following a lull in the rain in the build up to kick off. 

Both sides battled hard in the first half and the Stags were able to take the lead with a header by our heroic captain Myles Winter who finished a Lorenzo Budini Gattai corner. Stags were able to hold on to the lead through to half time. 

In the second half the torrential rain began again and playing football became virtually impossible due to the massive puddles that had built up all over the pitch. Stags showed that they are able to play in all conditions after having won the league in one of the hottest days of the year thus far. We continued to create chances in the second half but were unfortunate in front of goal. Young Guns also had changes but Stags goal keeper Rocco came to our rescue Keeping a clean sheet. The game finished 1-0 with the Stags taking home the plate and completing the much coveted double for the 16/17 season. 

I’d like to thank the entire squad for their commitment throughout the season, the committee for their hard work in making this a fantastic season both on and off the field and the club for their support.
