As the fourth round of games kick off tomorrow morning, Clay FC will certainly look to capitalize on their home advantage and keep the momentum going by putting up a strong performance against MFC. Since the 3-0 loss to DC Eagles, the team has looked inwards and made certain changes. The shakeup started with the appointment of Kesiena “Kes” Doghor as the head coach. Kes is a proven leader and respected voice of the team. He comes with a strong personality on and off the field, and this will prove useful as he will play a dual role as a player-coach. Ache Fomenky, another well respected member of the team was appointed to be the assistant coach. Since the changes were made, Clay FC notched their first win with a 2-0 margin against LWC FC. They plan to continue this run against the defending champions, MFC – who have had a mixed season so far.
MFC is currently without their talisman, Rilwan Adewusi, who was the league’s leading goal scorer and 2018/19 Finals MVP. Rilwan was ruled out due to injury/illness, and his absence has certainly been missed by his team and the league as a whole. Despite his absence, MFC still remains a formidable team with the likes of Henry Okorie, Victor Lawal, Wasiu Bola, Ugo Ekeh, Babatunde Bankole, Taiwo Bello and other key players involved.
The match kicks off at 8:30am CT at RCCG Kings Palace Soccer Field, 5371 E 5th St, Katy, TX 77493, USA. We hope to see you there!!!
