The second matchweek of 2020 Telekom S-League reaches its end on Wednesday when current league champions Solomon Warriors will face Marist FC at Lawson Tama Stadium in Honiara – the capital of Solomon Islands.
It is going to be Warriors’ first match in the season as they had a bye week in the opening round which means that they had one more week to get ready for the season: “We worked hard over the past weeks to recover our fitness level. We are ready to play this week,” said midfielder John Alick.
Alick is a key player for Solomon Warriors. The 29-year-old player from Vanuatu was named the best player of 2019-20 Telekom S-League and he knows that fans will expect more from him this season: “Receiving this award was an honour for me. Now I also have a big responsibility on guiding the team this season,” he stated.
This Telekom S-League has eleven teams fighting for the title – two more teams in comparison with last season. After finishing the 2019-20 season in the second position, Henderson Eels had a powerful start this season by winning two matches (5-1 and 7-0). Alick knows that they are going to have tough rivals in the title race: “We will do our best to defend our national title,” he pointed.
