National League: Injuries spare Positive FC from goal fest by Sugar Boys

A truncated weekend of National League football action was highlighted by Sugar Boys FC increasing their win streak to six, whilst VG United got back to winning ways in front of their home crowd.
Only two games took place over the weekend, with Sugar Boys cruising to a 5-0 win against Positive FC in a game that was stopped by the Referee just before halftime at East End on Saturday, November 26, 2022. A series of injuries meant Positive FC could not field enough players for the game to continue.

By the time the decision was made, Derol Redhead had already scored twice (6th and 30th mins) to become the current league-leading scorer with nine goals.

“They (Positive) had only started with nine and then were reduced to just six,” commented Redhead, “but we were happy to come away with the three points and to keep our winning streak going. Our aim is to be champions again, so coming out on top just keeps us going towards our plan.”

The other goal scorers were Roland Roberts (27th), Alejandro Sanchez (29th) and Keron Daniel (31st).

‘Ugly win’ for VG United

Virgin Gorda United then got back into winning ways with a hard-fought 1-0 win against Islanders FC in front of their home fans on the Virgin Gorda Recreation Ground on Sunday, November 27, 2022.

The only goal of the game came in the 86th minute from Adrian Padilla Adams.

“It wasn’t one of our best games,” noted Manager Jermain Abrams. “We had not played for a few weeks, and it was definitely an ugly win. We did not play our best, did not capitalise on our chances, but dominated possession, managed the all-important goal, and will take the three points. We are thankful for that!”

Wednesday night, November 30, 2022, sees a commemorative match take place at the East End / Long Look venue between a VI team and The Rest, to recognise the 150th anniversary of the first ever international match that took place in 1872 when England faced Scotland.

There will also be a series of School games starting at 3:45pm, with the main game kicking off at 6:30pm.

Upcoming National League schedule:

Saturday, December 3

EE/LL Panthers FC v VG Utd. 6.30pm

Sunday, December 4

EE/LL Lion Heart FC v Rebels FC 6.30pm

VGRG Sugar Boys FC v One Caribbean FC 8.00pm
