Central Coast FC is one of three new franchises in Telekom S-League, the national football league from the Solomon Islands. Despite being debutants, the team coached by Jacob Moli plays in a good level, justifying their good campaign in the first round of the league.
Currently in the fourth position with eighteen points, Central Coast have a solid defensive system composed by young players like goalkeeper Phillip Mango, central backs Alfred Keni and William Komasi, left back Alick Kitalo and defensive midfielder Javin Wae. However, Central Coast FC have the third worst offensive record in the league this season with only eleven goals scored in ten matches.
One of the team’s biggest problems was the lack of a player who is responsible for scoring a good number of goals: Philip Ropa was the team’s top scorer in the first round with three goals, while Atana Fa’arodo found the net twice. Densly Geseni, a promising forward who is an important part of the team, finished the first round with only one goal.
The coaching staff identified this problem and announced the arrival of Charles Mani, one of the most promising forwards in local football, who will have to deal with the pressure of scoring a good number of goals.
With a young and strengthened squad for the second round of the season, Central Coast FC remain a team to watch, to the delight of good football fans. You can check more details about 2020 Telekom S-League by clicking here.
