Timothy Bakale determined to help Henderson Eels in 2020 Telekom S-League

After finishing the 2019-20 Telekom S-League in the second position, Henderson Eels want more for this season. The team coached by Eddie Marahare built a very strong squad that is surely one of the best in the country.

The squad is almost the same in comparison with the team that travelled to Vanuatu to play 2020 OFC Champions League group stage. The biggest news come from the defense as defender Andrew Rarangia is back to the team after missing the continental tournament and Boni Pride is finally able to play after getting injured in a Champions League match earlier this year. It was also reported that well known full back Robert Laua joined the team for the upcoming Telekom S-League season: “We had a very good preparation. The training sessions were very intense and we are ready for the season,” said Timothy Bakale who is a regular starter in the team.

It was also confirmed that rising stars Leon Kofana and Raphael Lea’i will remain with the team for the tournament. Both players joined the club for the second half of 2019-20 season and they played important roles in the team, specially Lea’i who scored 24 goals in seven matches in the last edition of he Telekom S-League: “We finished the last season in the second position but we are stronger now so we want to win the title this year,” said Bakale.

Henderson Eels’ first challenge of the season will be against Isabel United on this Saturday at Lawson Tama Stadium in Honiara.
