Season 2020: July
An Overview Of Peimari United In July 2020
"We put ourselves into a position of real strength in the league. We had one-and-a-half hands on the trophy and only a f*ck-up of Liverpool proportions would have been able to deny us the title. We had to keep pushing and we put in the hours to keep developing on an upwards spiral."
Peimari Remained Unbeaten In The League
The month started with a very positive, and routine, victory over Kemi Kings at home. We were excellent in attack and solid in defence, and we showed our creativity in the types of goals we scored. Justus Kauppinen scored a dramatic late brace against AC Kajaani to make it two wins from two in July, before we were held to a d raw away to FC Ilves. Ilves were fighting with everything that they had for promotion and the result was a point earned, rather than two points lost, for us. Gnistan Helsinki very nearly damaged us at the end of the month. They equalised late on, but goals from Akseli Ollila and Antti Pokela secured the win for us to wrap up the month quite nicely.
Player of the Month
Akseli Ollila Was Peimari United's Star Player During July 2020
Akseli Ollila was our hero in July. Ollila was only fit enough to play two games, but he scored three very important goals which may prove vital in the title race. Ollila scored an away goal against FC Ilves before scoring twice versus Gnistant Helsinki to round the month off with a win.

Peimari United Were In Sniffing Distance Of The League Title
We were nearly there. Four wins from the remaining nine games would mean league title victory, regardless of the other teams. As far as I was concerned, we only needed one or two to secure the title. Well done team.
Peimari United's Finances Had Gone Into The Red
Peimari United Had Five Big Games In August
We had the opportunity to wrap up the league title in August. We knew that a win against KPV and and a win against FC Haka would basically have it wrapped up in two games. That was the objective.
, Riku will have to work his way back into the squad. He already had competition for a starting spot with Ollila coming in and banging in goals. It'll be difficult, but I have faith he can produce the goods when fit again.
, the team should be fine. While a broken ankle isn't necessarily a long-term injury, it is one that tends to have bad consequences. Hopefully he fights to get back to his former self.
