Season 2019: June
An Overview Of Peimari United In June 2019
"Following a promising start to the season, which included lifting the Kakkonen Cup, we headed into June with confidence flowing and a Suomen Cup final to look forward to. We already had plenty to celebrate but we had plenty yet to fight for."
Saku Klinga Joined Peimari United On A Free Transfer During The Month Of June
There was one in and one out in June. Youth player Olli Neuvonen left for FC Kontu Helsinki on a free transfer in order to play first team football. I was not going to stand in his way. In terms of incoming players, Saku Klinga joined the club to bolster midfield options. A well-rounded young player, Klinga had previously played for Kiffen and joined to add depth to the midfield, although he was not expected to start every game.
Peimari Lost The Suomen Cup Final But Recorded A Perfect Set Of Results In Kakkonen
June began with a colossal fixture. A minor fixture in the form of a cup final was played. We faced off against mega club HJK in the Suomen Cup final, at HJK's home ground. We kept the score respectable, despite the scoreline, and we performed admirably. It was a tough defeat to take, nonetheless, but we proved we could compete against the nation's top teams once again. It was a learning curve for the football club.
Kakkonen brought great fortune to us in June. We recovered from the Suomen Cup final heartbreak with narrow win over historically-significant Tampere United. We then scored eleven goals in three games, as we put HJS, Jippo and HyPS to the sword in resounding fashion. It was a display of our attacking confidence as we cut teams open like a knife through butter.
Player of the Month
Bruno Rodrigues Was Peimari United's Star Player During June 2019
Bruno Rodrigues was our stand-out player in June, as we torched the Kakkonen fixtures in style. The Portuguese speedster was far more suited to playing as a winger but grew into the role of Complete Wing Back, a far more defensive and deeper role, with grace. Rodrigues capped off an impressive month with two goals against HyPS as he began to create a name for himself as a marauding wing back. Similarities were certainly drawn between his playing style and that of Liverpool youngster Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Peimari United Were Four Points Clear At The Top
In immaculate set of Kakkonen results in June left us four points clear at the top of the table. Nearly at the halfway stage (already), this was a stupendously good result for us. Our goal scoring exploits had left the rest of the division well behind and we looked like continuing our solid form. We could only ask for more of the same.
Peimari United's Finances Increased Considerably During June
Courtesy of the Suomen Cup final, our balance took a major boost in June, with an increase of almost 100% witnessed. Not bad.
Peimari United Would Only Have Kakkonen Action For The Rest Of The Season
With the cups well and truly over, only league action remained. We were to play just four games in an easy-going July. Sadly I forgot to indicate which games were home and away in the graphic (H-A-H-H) but we were expecting to win each individual game anyway.
, every cloud has a silver lining! Lessons have been learned from analysis of the game and we will come back stronger in the next edition of the Suomen Cup!
, hopefully we will face them again sooner rather than later as that would signal progress being made
We just need to keep fighting to improve our ability, performances and standing in the game!
, as much as I love how you and Scoot try your best to contradict each other with your comments, I pray you are more correct than him
