Net Rockers to meet army today

…victory dedicated to slain Lindeners

Net Rockers is set for their match against the army today, after defeating the police in their last game to advance to the quarterfinals of the Banks DIH/GFA Cup.

However, Net Rockers Coach Ian Wills said nothing brought them greater pleasure than to dedicate their victory to the three men slain during protest action in Linden in July.

In an exclusive interview with Stabroek Sport Net Rockers’ Wills said when the team stepped onto to the field they did so with Linden on the minds. “Each of the three goals is dedicated one of the three Linden protestors that were killed by police,” he said.

The team is now looking forward to their match against the army. “Even though the army is one of the better teams in the competition we still are optimistic that we can defeat them. Fruta Conquerors is one of the top teams in the GFA but they were defeated by Riddim Squad,” he said, adding that Net Rockers now has the opportunity to do the same.

“The army is known for playing in certain weather conditions, they are accustomed to playing in mud and that was evident in their last match against Black Pearl.
The army seemed to be in their element while Black Pearl was struggling,” he noted, adding that while his team is used to playing in sand they are up to the challenge.
