Now that's one way to kick off the season! :O
October Recap

1 November, 2016

The second month of the 2016 season was really good for the Red Devils as they took in three wins and only one loss. Man 62 is now in third place after five matches with 12 points, one behind leaders Europa and Lincoln. It seems as if all the new talent has gelled quicker than what the club experenced at this time of the season.

The month began with a 2-0 victory over newly promoted Leo FC. Following that on matchday three we would face off against rivals Angels. In this match the Red Devils would barely get by with a 2-1 victory. It was all in part of Antonis Efthymakis' stellar goalkeeping. Match day four saw Man 62 lose on a heart breaker against Lincoln Red Imps, this match an error gave the opposing team a chance to score with a few seconds remaining before the match ended. Finally the Red Devils redeamed themselves against St. Joe's in a 3-0 blowout

Player of the Month:

Despite allowing three goals during the month goalkeeper Antonis Efthymakis was by far one of the best players during the month of October. During the matches against Leo FC and St. Joe's he would record two shutouts. It was his match against Angels that really turned heads. His amazing play and skill prevented our rivals from scoring several times during the 90.

Managers Thoughts:
There is really nothing to be upset about even with that heartbreaking loss to Lincoln we can be proud of how we played. Football can be cruel at times and that goal in the 90' is one example of how unforgiving the sport is. Other than that I like that we are only a point from the league leaders and hopefully next month we can get on top. The way this team is playing makes me very happy.

What to look forward to in November:
With three matches the next month will be over before you know it. The Gibraltar FA has awarded the club two home matches during this month, 5 Nov against newly promoted Gib Phoenix and 26 Nov against Lions. The other match in the month has Lynx playing host to the Red Devils on 19 November.

Very easy and relaxing schedule in this league, fatigue is no issue!
Good month on the whole mate, keep it up :)
Some decent results there! Keep it up man :D
Performing very strongly so far, hopefully you can keep within contention for the top spot!
Top three have already opened up a decent lead on the rest of the teams. Good luck getting higher in it

November Recap

1 December, 2016

The 2016/17 season just keeps getting better and better for manager Teemu Nieminen and his Red Devils. In the three matches of November his club went through them with relative ease. With winning all three matches and Europa FC dropping one Man 62 is now one point behind league leaders Lincoln Red Imps.

It was not all sunshine and happiness for the Red Devils as two players went down with major injuries and will be missing significant time away from the pitch. Both John-Paul Duarte and Jamie Coombes will be out for the next 5-6 months with achilles tendon injuries. We wish both players the best and hope for a speedy and painless recovery. See you on the pitch soon.

With only three matches Man 62 made the most of them. Starting off against newly promoted Gib Phoenix the Red Devils would win by a score of 2-0 thanks to an Anthony Hernandez goal and an own goal by one of their players. The next match saw fan favourites Estiven and Jeremy Lopez on the score sheet in a 3-1 victory over Lynx. Finally to close out November the club would defeat Lions by a 3-1 scoreline with goals by Michael Yome, Dimitris Skouloudakis and Jack Sergeant.

Also congratulations to manager Teemu Nieminen who has picked up his first Manager of the Month award for the season.

Player of the Month:

With an overall rating of 8.2 in the three matches winger Jeremy Lopez was by far the best player in November. Scoring two goals and adding an assist helped the Red Devils in this very important month. His leadership and hard work made the month very successful. In the two matches against Lynx and Lions he posted a 9.0 rating.

Managers Thoughts:
We are one point behind league leaders Lincoln. Let that sink in a bit seriously especially when you look back at where we were last year at this time. The play of Jeremy Lopez and Anthony Hernandez really impressed me this month, both will be key all season long. The part I hated the most is seeing two of our players go down with bad injuries, especially John-Paul as that hurts the most.

What to look forward to in December:
Four matches remain of the 2016 portion of the season. The month starts with a crucial contest against third place Europa FC in the first match between the two all season. The next two matches are against Britannia and Leo FC. Closing out the year on New Years Eve the Red Devils will be facing St. Joe's. Finally the draw for the Gibraltar Premier Cup second round will take place on 15 December.

2016/17 Gibraltar Premier Cup second round draw

15 December 2016

Today is the draw for the second round of the Premier Cup. Here are the matchups that will take place between 10-18 January.

My Thoughts:
I was hoping for someone easier but the Lincoln Red Imps will be a great match and hopefully we can get something positive out of it.
Three teams clear at the top already.. incredible for that to occur so early!
Doing well across the board mate, really liking this!
