Marist march-on to O-league 2010

Congratulation to Marist FC for making it to the O-league 2010. You have played good football and you deserve it. Wish you all the best in your preparation for the O- league which will be started in early October this year and finishes at the beginning of next year. At least you have already tested the taste of O-league in 2006 when you represent Solomon Islands in the first ever O-league tournament. This will motivate you to earn a good result only if you strive hard and display a good sportsmanship without receiving red cards like most of national players for Solomon Islands they always did in almost every tournaments. Game is game, and you can either win or loss so you have to accept some situations in life.

A classic example can be seen when Kossa FC represent Solomon Islands in the O-league 2007 where they defeat Waitakere FC in home ground but lost to Waitakere FC in the away game. They display a good sportsmanship until their final match in Waitakere's home ground.

Once again, I would like to say congratulations to Marist FC for that victory and all the best in your preparation for the O-league and in your matches against your opponents. Give all that you have against your opponents, either win or loss that's what game meant to be. If others can do it, you can do it as well. You represent your club and your nation Solomon Islands as a whole.

Go Marist go, go solo go and go for glory.
