Updates – Cup, Friendlies, New Website
Some updates since my last post:
-We won our second Cup game against Fokikos, this time with a score of 1-0, putting us through to the next round. The first match of the next round, away against Panthrakikos, ended in a 0-0 draw. Our next match is against Iraklis Psachnon on the 28th of October, while the final match of the 2nd round will be at home against Atromitos on the 2nd of December. I’m not particularly worried about the match against Iraklis Paschnon, though the match against Atromitos will certainly be a challenge. Thankfully it will be played at home, we’ll have to wait and see what happens.
Something to note about the cup this year is that there is now a group stage at the second leg, which is why we’re playing three teams, and only one game against each. We currently sit at second with one point, behind Atromitos who have three points. I’m not actually sure yet if its only the top team who advance or the top two. I believe its most likely the top two teams who advance, which should give us a pretty good chance of progressing.
-We have one more friendly coming up against Pierikos, our last friendly before the start of the league. This match will be on the 7th of October, while our first league match will be on the 12th of October, against Panaigialeios.
-We have a new website, and I must say its quite nice. I particularly like the new calendar, which can be found here: http://www.aekfc.gr/prp/ola-43306.htm?lang=el&path=-1449899271
There is no english version of the site yet, though it is apparently coming.
