Season 2019: August
An Overview Of Peimari United In August 2019
"With each passing month, we were growing in ability, stature and confidence. We were looking more and more likely to claim top spot in our group, which is all we wanted. It was no time to take the foot off the gas, however, and I was determined to push my players to even higher levels."
Peimari United Picked Up Four Wins From Five Games In August
August began with three away fixtures. We scraped through against PEPO. Despite going two goals ahead, they scored late on to put the pressure on. Sudet proved to be equally frustrating. We went two goals up, again, but conceded late on to face a nervy ending. Our lack of composure showed in our third fixture, as FCV ran riot against us. We conceded three goals and earned a deserved defeat.
The defeat appeared to galvanise the squad and we ran out big winners in our final two games. A 5-1 victory over Tampere United at home was followed up by a 4-1 win over HJS. The players were far more motivated than they were previously and this showed on two strong attacking displays.

Peimari United Moved Into A Strong Position
We were flying. A fourteen point gap had opened up at the top of the table and we were set to claim top spot. It was our goal scoring exploits which gave us the leg up. Top spot was enough to earn a playoff spot, which was all we wanted.
Peimari United's Finances Took Another Hit In August
We were into the red. I wasn't concerned. There was prize money to be earned from our performances in the league. We anticipated that to be more than enough to cover our expenditure.
Peimari United Had Three Fixtures In September
With the group stage of the league all but wrapped up, we were confident that we could claim top spot regardless of our results. That was no reason to drop off, we wanted to win every remaining game regardless of our position.
, the future looks bright for the club and it'll be nice for Kalle to be the man leading the conquest!
