Amanzimtoti Soccer Club – seniors

TOTI United took on Grasshoppers FC yesterday on a beautiful Durban winter afternoon. Feeling confident off the back of two wins in succession, Toti played patiently and absorbed the oppositions long balls with the sun in the eyes of the defenders.

Toti began to turn the screws with Matic Lambert and Ayanda, stringing nice passes with Brad, Sean, Pete and Syd providing width and skill out wide and up front.

The breakthrough, and catalyst for what was a dominant performance, was a perfectly weighted corner from Brad which found Captain Fantastic, Wesley "Fergkamp's" forehead as he guided the ball into the top corner leaving the keeper with no chance.

The confidence started to really flow and a succession of corners and free kicks went narrowly wide until Matic (seemingly intent on personally ruining Grasshoppers season) lashed onto a poor clearance from a set piece. He struck a stinging volley which the keeper could do no more than parry into the path of Wes, who pounced on the error and coolly slotted home, his second for the day. The saying goes "Jesus saves, but Wes nets the rebound" rung true yesterday.

Toti saw out the rest of the half and went into the break 2-0 up. Grasshoppers came out in the second half fired up and fighting back. A short period of domination for them quickly turned into frustration, after failing to capitalize. Their players lost their heads and resorted to needless and in some cases, malicious fouls.
Toti capitalised on this as Pete took the pass and tore the net with a bullet of a header after another great set piece delivery by Brad.

Not content with his two goals for the afternoon, Wes decided to get in on the action again. Brad put in another deadly ball which was headed across goal by Pete for Sean who flicked it back cross to the back post for Wes to calmly nod home and join the esteemed elite "Hattrick club" that has for many years only consisted of Kenya, Sean Ayling and Brendan Smith.

Toti then saw out the rest of the game with relative ease until Ross mistook the ball for the opponents face and conceded a late penalty and earned a second yellow for his efforts.

The final score was four to one. Three wins on the trot as we prepare for Riverside at home on Wednesday.

What’s happening

Use of functions hall

ASC manage this function hall as a means of income to pay for projects in the park such as fencing, lighting, repairs, upgrades, labour, security, etc.

Use of the hall

Clubs and affiliates: free - once per affiliate, once per calendar year, for example for a prize giving, or a fund-raiser. This is subject to the hall being available, so booking is essential. Thereafter, if wanting to use the hall for an event, each affiliate will be charged 50% of the booking fee.

Weekly, monthly or annual meetings, AGMs, et cetera, are free, but subject to availability and need to be booked through myself.

The hall or verandah is also available for outside events and parties and functions and ASC would really appreciate all your support.

Security around the park
