|Our football team - The Mariners|
| Time range:
1985 - 1999
Football playing was one of my and most of my friend's favourite hobby. Thanks to a nearby ground, I and my neighbour friends used to go and play everyday. we never trained football with a club, but just from playing and experience. After some time we decided to make a team and I named it Mariners. We used to play some friendly matches regularly, especially in the early 90's Sometimes I bring a group of friends from college, or someone bring a group of friends from his work, and we organise a match, usually at saint Micheal's ground. We were quite good, and after some time we also bought a gear and paid for more professional ground to organise our matches in. However it was in 1997 that we had our climax in our history! I organised a team of 10 players which where most active and reliable at that time and participated in a summer football league tournament. This involved about 7 other teams and the league was 2 rounds. So there was plenty to play. At first we lost some games but then our strong will, effort, discipline and teamwork came out. We started to wn and win, until the decissive game arrved. We had to win the team who was first, and in fact we suceeded. I scored 3 goals in that exciting match, which I still remember well. In the first goal I was Euphoric and the 3rd goal wasa masterpiece - I scored from a vey sharp angle. The game ended 5-2. We ended first and so won a trophy each. I was so happy, and this was the first time ever we won something out of football. Unfortunately as we grow up, we lost a bit contact and did not had enough time for playing. Also, to put salt in the wound, the nearby St. Micheals ground was closed. I think it was in 1999 all this happened, and was the end of the legendary MAriners team !!!!
