The current title holders of the Telekom S-League are set to make their debut only on the next Wednesday (19th Aug), but the Solomon Warriors are already preparing for the league for a couple of weeks and released their squad for the season recently. Including some well-known names such as Gibson Daudau and Dennis Ifunaoa, another player in the list caugh attention of the fans: Alwin Hou.
The dual international for Solomon Islands – futsal and football – has returned for Solomon Warriors after playing the last Telekom S-League for Kossa and being absent from their 2020 OFC Champions League campaign in the group stage – competition that is on hold due COVID-19 concerns as Solomon Warriors is qualified for the knock-out stage.
Hou played the last edition of the Pacific Games men’s football tournament for Solomon Islands – also taking part of the national team camp in Netherlands as preparation for the tournament. After that, still in 2019, he helped Solomon Islands in futsal to win OFC Futsal Nations Cup and qualitfy his country to the FIFA Futsal World Cup and also was part of the Kooline’s squad that won the first ever edition of the OFC Futsal Champions League.
The midfielder adds even more talent to Warriors’ squad; improving an already very good team that won the last two seasons of the Telekom S-League and granted a spot among the best eight teams in the OFC Champions League in 2020.
Hou has everything what it takes to have an instant impact for Solomon Warriors; the fans might be pleasued to count again on the arguably quality of the still 23-year-old player – an important addition to Warriors and also an important addition for the top-tier football league in Solomon Warriors.
