We will find out our opponents in the knock-out stage later this week.

So far, so good for Dal Canto’s haphazard side, whose league form has been a rollercoaster this season, yet given the high amount of promotions from the U17 side, it was always going to be a tough campaign. Still, with the talent in the squad I had hoped for better than our current predicament, where we seem set to struggle to reach the top six and the play-off tournament which follows the league stage. I am unsure as to why star midfielder Caligara is unable to force his way into the starting XI, though suspect that the boss is using this season to focus on development more than success, and one does not always collide with the other.
