YOUNG Natalians ended their season on a high, mauling Maritzburg Hotspurs 9-3 on Friday to take first place in the National Futsal League (NFL) at the end of a remarkable season that sees them at the top of the table by five points.

In a total of 12 matches played throughout the season, coach Greg Nair’s team took 32 points out of a possible 36. With a second successive championship in three seasons, Natalians coach was full of praise for his side but also reflective on what could have been.

“We are happy to finish five points clear but would have liked to have gone unbeaten. Unfortunately we had to settle for one loss and one draw which isn’t that bad,” said Nair.

Nair said that it was a very good season for them and that they worked hard and will continue to work hard ahead of an upcoming knockout competition they will compete at in July.

“We will continue to train hard ahead of the knockout competition because we really want to win that,” said Nair.

Renaldo Donnelly of Natalians finished the season as top goal scorer after netting four against Hotspurs to put his season tally at 17 goals to make it three seasons in a row that he had finished as top scorer.
