Solomon Islands’ youngster Ali Mekawir is living a bright moment in his career as he is scoring a good amount of goals for Langney Wanderers in England. After making history in English FA Cup, the 20-year-old forward now wrote his name in FA Vase – a national cup for teams that are playing in 9th, 10th or 11th tier of English football.
Langney Wanderers received Eastbourne United at Priory Lane in the First Round of the Cup. Eastbourne United had a powerful start by scoring two goals in fifteen minutes but it was not enough to discourage Wanderers. Ali Mekawir scored Langney’s first goal in the 19th minute and Harry Ducatel found the net two minutes later to equalize (2-2).
Callum Sheriff scored in the final minutes of the first half to put Wanderers ahead while Trey Masikini scored the last goal of the contest to seal the 4-2 win. Wanderers will face Epsom & Ewell FC or Bridon Ropes FC on October 10 in the second round of 2020-21 FA Vase.
