OFC Champions League: Vanuatu’s John Alick to captain Solomon Warriors in his hometown

John Alick, the Vanuatu international, is set to captain the Solomon Islands’ champions Solomon Warriors in the upcoming OFC Champions League. The midfielder was a key member of the team and played a significant role in winning the last season’s Telekom S-League. He scored some crucial goals in the final matches of the top-tier league of the Solomon Islands.

The 32-year-old player, who hails from Luganville, will have the honor to captain his side in a special situation, as he will be playing in his hometown. Luganville is where he started his football career and first gained regional recognition playing for Malampa Revivors, a club where he had his first experience of the OFC Champions League. “The bonus is John Alick will be leading the team in his hometown we got a strong Solomon islands community here to support us plus the entire Luganvillie will be behind us“, said Theodore Inomae, Warriors’ media manager.
