ROOKS Get Back On Track With A Big Win To Start 2019!!!
After a dificult loss to close out 2018, The Rooks are back on track in the new year with a big win. Though we are still hoping to reach our full potential within the league, our squad did a great job of staying in control of the match from start to finish.

“Good Performance by our players. I am very happy with the Win after a tough loss last time out. We played with confidence and we were in charge the whole game. I am very happy with the fact that we allowed other team only 5 shots during game. Most important for me is that we attacked and defended as team today, strikers did great job tracking back and defenders did push forward today as well... So yeah we did deserve victory today, but i am also concern that we are not focused enough, we gave away ball couple of times by playing very poor passes or dribbling in the middle, If we did that against tougher opponents they would punish us, so we have to eliminate this ASAP. We also need to start scoring more goals as we are creating very good chances (lots of them). some of the players played on new positions today and they did very well. Now we focus on next week as we will be facing 3rd place team that plays very physical. We will be ready.”
- Coach Wojtek Piotrowski
I would like to wish HAPPY NEW YEAR to all the players, supporters, owners and fans!
