Ikeys Look To Fresh Start
UCT captain, Gregg Bryer, says the team is bitterly disappointed not to have won their last game in Varsity Football this season.
The Cape students found themselves languishing at the bottom of the standings for most of the term, and were keen to end with a win in front of their home fans.
However, despite their best intentions they could only manage a hard-fought 3-3 draw to a plucky UWC team in a Cape derby which has left a sour taste Bryer’s mouth.
“It’s really disappointing, especially the goals they scored came against the run of play and that the one goal was a header scored by a player that’s much shorter than most of our defenders,” he lamented.
The dejected skipper says the squad had worked hard in training ironing out all their weaknesses last week, but failed to keep their concentration in defence on Monday.
“We trained hard and it did show by the way we played when we had the ball, but our defence struggled, so we will have to work at it for next season.
“I don’t feel too bad about our results though because most of them were pretty close encounters where we just ended up losing to unlucky goals. Next season we will definitely be better,” he added.
Bryers revealed that UCT will start the new fresh with a new-look squad as most of their players will be graduating this year.
