John Alick to the rescue: Vanuatu’s midfielder has instant impact as Warriors celebrate S-League title

Vanuatu national team midfielder, John Alick, played a crucial role in Solomon Warriors’ victory in the Telekom S-League this past weekend. In the championship-deciding match against Wanegu United, Alick impressed with a fantastic free-kick goal, helping his team to a hard-fought 3-3 draw and clinching the league title.

Alick’s return to the team for this match was significant, as he had been away from the country and had not played a match this year prior to this game. Nevertheless, he was able to make an immediate impact, scoring a goal and helping his team to overturn a two-goal deficit. In the 90th minute, veteran Emmanuel Poila scored from a penalty kick to seal the title for the Solomon Warriors – as they needed only a draw to confirm their title.

Perhaps the most intriguing detail of the match is that Alick, a former Malampa Revivors player, arrived in Honiara just two hours before kick-off, yet he was able to get ready and play a significant part in his team’s rescue. His powerful midfield play was crucial to the team’s success, confirming their favouritism and securing their seventh Telekom S-League title.

Alick’s performance in this match is a testament to his skill and determination as a player. His free-kick goal and overall contribution to the team’s victory will be remembered by fans and teammates alike, and he will be hoping to continue his success in future matches with the Solomon Warriors as they now hope to confirm a spot in the 2023 edition of the OFC Champions League.
