Beeston Jnrs 0-3 Phoenix FC

Phoenix FC got their first points on the board with a convincing 3-0 win against Beeston Juniors O.B.

An improved display from their first game and Phoenix showed no nerves in comparison to last week starting fast and going 1-0 up with some brilliant pressing from Zaid to win the ball high followed by a ball across the box to new signing Attaur Rehman who scored from close range.

Attaur added a second to his account early in the second half after some tidy play out wide by Shebul. Phoenix put the game to bed following a short corner from Mo Sadiq to Arsalan who beat a couple of players and slotted in at the near post.

Phoenix FC register their first win and clean sheet in the Premier Division which no doubt will be a proud moment for the club and manager Zaf.

Phoenix have completed the signing of 2 young Spanish talents Malamin and Musa. Both are highly rated young players by manager Zaf who is excited to see them showcase their ability on the pitch.

Phoenix FC played their first ever game in the Premier division today losing 5-1 to an experienced Gildersome side.

Phoenix FC got off to a good start moving the ball well but 3 set piece errors led to 3 quick goals for Gildersome which knocked a lot of confidence in the first half.

After some very good chances Phoenix did everything well but score.

Second half Phoenix came out the same, moving the ball well but were humbled by a couple more goals again from basic errors.

Musa Dukureh got 1 back following some tidy play from Phoenix, a lobbed pass from Anas put Musa through who finished with a cool lob over the keeper.

Phoenix FC got a harsh taste of Premier division football today. Manager Zaf said: ‘The team showed what we’re trying to achieve by playing good football, but in patches and at this level consistency is important. We’re a work in progress and I have no doubt each week we will only get better.’

Phoenix FC play Beeston Juniors Old Boys next Saturday 11 September.

Phoenix have added midfielder Arsalan to their squad who manager Zaf believes is a key signing. Arsalan has had spells across a number of teams in the Yorkshire Amateur League playing with some high profile players.

Manager Zaf was excited to see Arsalan display his qualities in the U23s Bradford Summer Shield final. He said: ‘Arsalan showed some very good passing ranges and confidence on the ball in that final. He brings good experience to our squad, I think he’ll be very important for us this season.’

The Club AGM was held in person this year in preparation of the upcoming season, after the last few meetings having been virtual. It was great to have all the coaches and volunteers meeting face to face. A number of new faces were welcomed to the Club. The attendees heard plans for future expansion and the opportunities that lie ahead with a new era starting at the Club.

A number of topics were covered and decisions were made regarding the various age groups. The main focus of this year’s AGM was player and coach development. A total of 20 age groups will compete in the upcoming season.

As is the Phoenix way, there was plenty to eat once the meeting was completed.

 

 

Phoenix FC have boosted their squad with the addition of forward Zaid Amaan. Zaid was previously playing for Hall Green in the West Yorkshire Association Premier Division.

A player who can play across the forward line will most definitely add to the quality manager Zaf is looking for in order to get goals for his team.

He said: ‘Zaid is someone I’ve also watched for a number of years, he’s been working hard to play at the highest level possible and I’m glad I can give him an opportunity in the Premier Division. I admire his versatility in the forward line and really looking forward to working on his development to take him to the next level.’

Training continues to recruit for their first team for the upcoming season. If you wish like to have a trial with the Phoenix 1st team, register at the link below.

Phoenix FC played their first ever game together in a pre-season friendly v Leeds City winning 4-3 with a late winner from star signing Mo Sadiq.

A shaky start for the new team going down 3 times in the game to come back and get the winner with 3 mins to play.

Some good football played today in patches with some very good team goals. Most importantly the lads worked hard up until the very end to fight for their victory.

Patience is the key for this season and we can’t wait to see our team back on the pitch very soon!

Goalscorers: Malamin x 2; Sam Hudson & Mo Sadiq

Subhaan returns to football to join Phoenix.

Manager Zaf had this to say about his new signing: Our squad is taking shape with the addition of Subhaan. He is a confident lad who doesn’t look to shy away from a battle. He’s shown his qualities playing for our U23s in pre season. I’m looking forward to seeing him in action for us soon.

Hamzah brings with him a vast amount of goalkeeping experience to help Phoenix FC in their debut season in the Premier Division of the Yorkshire Amateur League.
