The thrill of the mainstream football takes Fantastic Services on the pitch of Maidenhead 6-a-side league. Despite the amateur level of game, the players are nowhere less motivated to show their spirit for winning and success. Built by home-grown workers of Fantastic Services, the team proudly carries the name of Fantastic Lions FC.
Fantastic Lions is a registered football club in England, which, at the moment, carries an amateur status. It all started less than a month ago, when a group of dedicated individuals working for Fantastic Services gathered together to enter the mini football league. However, they needed proper equipment and support, so the company agreed to prepare those and give them a chance to see what they are made of on the grassy terrain.
The First Clash
Unsurprisingly, the team did not disappoint. On the contrary, they entered in their first match against AFC USEDTOBEGOOD with sheer determination to win. What happened then was the beginning of a story-tale.
The clash began at a very high pace, and, as early as in the 4th minute, the team of USEDTOBEGOOD made a powerful shot after a passing counter-attack and opened the scoresheet.
The Lions team didn’t give up, naturally. Towards the end of the half-time, they scored even with a sabre-tooth counter attack with Dragnev adding the first goal in the league to his tally. 1:1 at the half break.
The second half began with an amazing support from the Fantastic fans of the guests and, after the roaring shouts, the Fantastic Lions FC boys took the initiative. After a spectacular cross by Pavlov, Hristo Dragnev did a wonderful bicycle kick and scored, which was worthy enough even for stars from the ranks of Rooney, Suarez and even Ibrahimović. It was by no accident that the opposing team congratulated the goalscorer.
This moment of genius gave an impulse in the guests’ game and, towards the middle of the half-time, after a well-organised attack and assist by Stoyanov, Dragnev formed his hat-trick. The hosts started pressuring, which led to an array of saves by the goalkeeper Petkov and good defense play by the Lions.
The end came after a wonderful counter attack which led to the final 1:4 result. A well-deserved first win and three points for Fantastic Lions FC.
Only Time Will Tell
This was only the beginning of a wonderful story. Since day one, the team can’t catch a break from winning, and now they are transferring players from other squads, expanding the selection and the coach’s choices. During the last month, they’ve been nothing but successful at winning their games, proving their name for the upcoming merged mini league. Only time will tell how Fantastic Lions will perform in the future, however, one thing is for sure – they are standing on a solid ground and the team spirit is filled with eager anticipation.
Bring it on, Maidenhead league and Go Go Lions!
