Marahare to add three new signings

By Taromane Martin

AFTER two seasons coming in second, Henderson Eels Football Club is aiming to finish a step high as they look ahead for the round two of the 2020-2021 seasons of the Telekom Soccer League (TSL) which kicks off next month.

Head Coach Eddie Marahare said this will not be an easy task considering the level and number of teams taking part this season.

Eels are currently leading round one of the 2020-2021 TSL seasons with 27 points as the season takes a two weeks break of competition.

Round 2 will kick off November 7 and Coach Marahare says the two weeks break will be a chance for the team to do a review of their performance in Round One.

Marahare also revealed that they will be making three new signings for the second round of the Telekom Soccer League.

“The Telekom S league has wrapped up its final match in round one on Wednesday 21 October 2020. The midseason break will take two weeks and all the teams will need to refocus for the resumption of the 2020/2021 season round two on Saturday 7th November 2020,” Marahare stated.

“For Henderson Eels FC the short break will be an opportunity to review the team performance in the eleven matches the team played.

“The lead as shown in the league table is a 90% result-based output attributed to the level of team performance when comparing the total of games played so far and win results.

“The review as highlighted will be basically looking at areas where we will need to improve to consistently maintain team performance in the second round of the 2020/2021 S League season.

“Further, I am pleased to announce that three new signings will feature for the team in the second round.

“In the current S-League, the team aims to improve from past two seasons where we came second in both and qualified for two OFC quarterfinals.

“I understand this will not be an easy task when considering that the level of teams now in the league is tough from the previous seasons. 

“However, hence the purpose of this team review is to come up with a clear picture for the players and team management of the way forward if we’re to achieve our objective this season,” the Henderson Eels Tactician adds.
