Citizens,Well done on Sunday, a solid performance and good preparation for the tough games ahead. For those who missed out, Ivan powered one in early on and was followed by Rafa and Lao Cui (x2), to make it 4-0 – 4 games in a row with no goals conceded. Solid. Match details are available on the stats web (link below).

FCFC vs Sexy FC Cup game

Hi guys,
We decided to cancel the Sexy FC Cup game orginally scheduled for the 20th of February. The game will now take place on the 1st of March time and venue TBC, but I expect it to be round 8:30pm probably at Chaoyang Stadium.
Playing during the week and out there in Chaoyang is never great, but there are quite a few lads who cant make it on the weekend, so a great chance for them to take part during the week and help the team reach the Semi-finals!!!
So Make yourself available – Make the difference :)
See you in training tomorrow
Cheers,
Philippe
PS: with no game this Sunday we will probably have training at CIS. venue TBC. Please try and make it. Thanks.

G8: Summer Palace vs ISB Dragons

Palace,For info, last saturday we managed our largest victory so far this season by beating the Italians of Azzurri by 4-0. It was a very accomplished performance from all involved (18 players, + 3 who came for supporting!!). Special mention to our new signing Joachim Tangen, who scored 2 goals. After the game, most guys went to Lugas and voted unanimously for Joachim as Man-of-the-Match (and Matt Costello for Donkey).Now let’s try to follow this good win by another one against one of the best team in our division, the ISB Dragons, who are currently top of the league (and who defeated us in the Cup earlier this season).The game is scheduled for Saturday 20th November it’s at 11AM kickoff at Choyang stadium, meet there at 10:30AM.Who is available? , please answer ASAP.Cheers,PatrickPS: training session as usual, tomorrow, wednesday, 8-10 PM at the Lido.

Well done to all 18 players involved.This week-end we are playing another tough opposition, namely the Italians from Azzurri B, a team who often did well against us in previous seasons. The game is scheduled for Saturday 13th of November, 2 PM kick off at the Choayang Stadium, our usual venue.Who can play?

G4: Summer Palace vs Shenzhen Dev Bank

Palace,Well done to all involved in last sunday game, a 2-2 draw vs a solid Barbarians B team. A game we dominated but that we would have lost if it wasn’t for Yasir’s last minute equalizer. Apart for a 15 minutes spell in the 2nd half when we let them scored twice (on the only chances they created!), I think we played good football, moving the ball well, creating many chances.Our next game is against the Chinese team Shenzhen Development Bank. The game is scheduled for this coming saturday, 23rd October, 4PM kick off at Chaoyang Stadium, our usual venue. Meet at the pitch at 3:30PM.Who is available?PatrickPS: we are actually top of the 1st Division league table with 7 points:check the results on the IFFC website:http://www.iffc1994.com/cms/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=1508&Itemid=99
