WA Amateurs shine in Malaysia

    Rob Pagnoni’s State Amateur Representatives have returned from their Malaysian tour with two huge wins from their three matches.

    Their opening match saw WA thrash the Malaysian Police Academy 5-1, with Joondalup United’s Gavin Knight starring with four goals.
    Next on the agenda was strong M-League side Kuala Lumpur, who had just been knocked out of the local Cup competition.
    They were way too strong in the end for WA, running out 4-1 winners despite a hard-fought effort from Fremantle United’s Alen Karaselimovic in defence.
    In the final match of the tour, WA finished off in fine fashion with a 2-0 victory over the University Technology Institute of Malaysia, with Olympic Kingsway’s Felim Rugel and Joondalup United’s Larry Miller being WA’s best performers.
    The week-long tour has been hailed a success by Pagnoni, who was proud of his troops who battled through trying conditions against strong opposition.
    “I’m pretty happy overall with how the boys performed,” he said.
    “To get a couple of wins against the type of opposition we played is a real credit to the players and they’ve really put in the hard yards to mix it with the best in Malaysia.
    “The game we lost against the M-League team just showed how much quality and depth they had - they were using between 30 and 40 players in the match with constant substitutions to keep them fresh.
    “If you had to compare them, they were the standard of an A-League team and prior to that the strongest opposition we faced would have been the NTC (Football West National Training Centre) in terms of sharpness and just how quickly they moved the ball.”

      Hiya! Quick question that's completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from my iphone4. I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share. Appreciate it!
