That goal was fantastic! Great way to welcome you to New Caledonia.
Despite drawing rival AS Belep it was a very successful full month of matches for manager Kévin Gauthier. During this time his club seemed to be at a pace that has not been seen in some time. During the month the club would win four out of the five league matches. The only blemish came against Belep in a disappointing 1-1 draw. The key match to the month came against AS Magenta at the start of the month as our club would win 3-0.
" I feel our success this month came from having time to get used to the new style of play I implemented and a few of the key signings that were made last month," said Gauthier. Then he continued on saying, "I had a feeling if we got hot from the start of my tenure we could be challenging for the title, well here we are on 1 September and we are tied for first."
As he said it was the new guys who preformed with the highest praise this month. Newly signed goalkeeper Alex Clement was the main reason for this run. During August he would have four shutouts with three in a row. Also Jamel Kabeu would have a great month scoring five goals. He is currently leading the league with 10.
In cup play Les Rouges et Noirs would kick off the 2015 Coupe de Nouvelle-Calédonie off with a 3-0 victory over AS Belep. In this match the rivals were no match for us as the club was carried by two goals from Jean-Marc Case. With that victory the club will be facing Gaïtcha FCN in the next round. The match is set for a 3:00pm NCT on 12 September.
As the club is starting to wind down the 2015 campaign they will be playing a short September with only two league matches and then one cup match. Despite such a short month the club has a lot to do to get towards the championship and a spot in next years OFC Champions League.
