By Richard Beale ……
I am awake now and yes Esentepe did score 6 goals, which is almost half of what we scored in 15 matches this season, shame this was only a friendly match but we still enjoyed it.
Result : ESENTEPE KKSK 6 MESARYA SK 1 (Friendly match)
Saturday, January 12th– Esentepe Erdal Barut Stadium.
On a cold wintry afternoon Esentepe’s performance warmed the spectators up as they ease themselves into the start of the season in two weeks time.
Both teams provided good entertainment, Esentepe put together some great moves, the players had time and space and there was plenty of good running off the ball.
Mesarya who were promoted from the BTM season during the summer are in a comfortable mid table position in League 1. They were no slouches either and helped the entertainment value by putting together some good moves themselves especially in the first half.
Action from the match Esentepe are in the training bibs
For Esentepe this was a good morale booster, the team have forgotten how to score goals and the players clearly enjoyed playing in this match. It was only a friendly, the result doesn’t matter, but it was good to see a smile on the team’s faces at the end of the match.
New signing 18year old Nigerian Efosa Francis scored his first goal for the Club and showed some nice touches on the left wing. The best goal of the match was from trial-list Ali Lamin who came on in the second half and hit a tremendous 25 yard shot that flew into the net.
All in all a good work out for the teams and more importantly for the spectators who made the effort to come along they were rewarded with a thoroughly entertaining game.
