Summary:

Spring Showcase Tournament – Having started slowly to the tournament CCCFC managed to regroup and come third in the group stages setting up a tie with DragonsFT, who were the hosts of the tournament. DragonsFT were one of the favourites to win the tournament and having beaten CCCFC several times before underestimated CCCFC and were run close; needing a golden goal in extra time to win the game. Overall, a decent tournament performance for CCCFC; getting out of the group stages and coming close to beating the hosts DragonsFT.

Chan Neils Solicitors – Having lost to Chan Neil Solicitors in last summers Chinese Community Challenge Cup, CCCFC were eager to play them again. This time the result was different and CCCFC managed to avenge the defeat from the CCC cup with a dominant display winning 10-3.

Orimental – First 11 a side game for 2013 against the unknown Orimental FC and it was a scrappy affair with CCCFC managing to win 3-1 but it could have been more.

Tackling Shoplifters! – After the Spring Showcase Tournament members of the CCCFC were walking down the street when a man ran past them followed by shouts of “thief”. CCCFC striker and London Metropolitan police officer; Kwok Ho showed what he does in his day job by apprehending the man who had several items of food in his possession. CCCFC members held the guy down until the police could arrive. CCCFC helping out the community where ever it goes!!!

Things to look forward to next month:

Next month brings the annual CCCFC Holland Tour. CCCFC are planning to bring along 2 teams to the city of Rotterdam to participate in a futsal tournament. This will take place on the 20th of April.

Notes:

We were asked to participate in Thai competition but we had to respectfully refuse due to a rule which would only allow 2 non-Asian players per team. As we represent the CCC we do not condone discrimination of any kind and would like to put it in the record that we will not play in any future competitions which has any restrictions on race. This is an issue in some Asian/Oriental competitions/communities and the CCCFC management believes that we should be doing all we can to break down these barriers.
