Therefore, pushed ourselves to the limit and every player did his best. We all were so determined to clinch the title and every one of the team knows how important to grab the title.”
The star of the team showed his deepest appreciation to H.E. Mohamed Abdullah Al Dhaheri for his support of the team in most of the games. He also thanked his teammates, coaching team and members of the Board of Directors for their great effort during the current period. He signed off: “We have another important challenge which the President’s Cup is and for sure we are so eager to clinch the title and keep it in the Club’s closets.”
