The 2020 Telekom S-League is ready to kick-off in Solomon Islands with three new franchieses: Central Coast FC, Honiara City FC and Southern United which means that eleven teams will fight for the title this year as Guadalcanal withdrew from playing the tournament.
Southern United built a squad with many players that are still unknown, but they have some good and known players like Alford Kanahanimae and Joachim Waroi: “Our squad is good. If we stay together we can we have a competitive side,” said Kanahanimae – “We are just getting to know each other. There is still a long way to go,” he added.
Alford also expressed his thoughts about team’s head coach Stanley Waita: “Having Stanley Waita as the team’s head coach is very good. He is a serious person and he has international experience,” he pointed. Kanahanimae and Waita know each other very well as both travelled to Brazil for FIFA U17 World Cup last year.
The first official match Southern United’s history is going to be against Kossa FC on this Saturday at Lawson Tama Stadium in Honiara.
