Match report: Raiders 1 – 0 Hotshots

After last week’s match tense and disappointing affair in which the referee was dishing out cards as gleefully as a postman at Christmas, The Raiders Ultras and WAGs who turned up were hoping for a game which was easier on the eye. Disappointingly for them, both The Raiders and Hotshots seemed to be intent on […]

Match report: Raiders 6 – 1 Hong Kong Krauts

2 games in 2 days gave us the chance to see the whole squad in action and what we are capable of. After the bad result on Friday it was time to show the German team from Hong Kong how we play in Saigon. Let’s be honest – it was not much opposition they gave […]

Match report: Raiders 4 – 1 Local team

[columns] [column size=”half” last=”no”] Nico The ball fizzles through the air, one of those tele-guided rocket corners Scott patents these days.
