Although securing no on field victories this season, the club has progressed towards being competitive at home against A Grade competition (Jakarta Bintangs) and competitive on tour against quality opposition in the Bali Geckos  and the Cambodian Eagles.   The tour to Cambodia marked the first time the Cock’s have taken Myanmar Nationals on tour.  Both players earned their keep and Han Tun Aung even recorded his first goal.  By and large, the on field performances are improving and recruitment prospects are only looking stronger.

The Cocks hosted a competitive Jakarta Bintangs in the inaugural Cock’s Plate in early February.  The tournament is something the Club wants to make a yearly fixture and already has good levels of interest from multiple regional clubs for 2017.  Apart from the game itself, one of the biggest highlights of the day was the Auskick clinic with 30 orphaned kids prior to the match.

The Club is well positioned to compete at the upcoming Asian Champ in HCMC, Vietnam.  We have returnee super stars and a number of new recruits that will form the backbone of the side.  As well as that, the Club will bring 4 Myanmar Nationals who will hopefully pace, agility and skill to the side.   It is something that everybody at the Club is looking forward to.   Also look out for Jhie Gough in his first Champs for Myanmar, most likely dominating up forward, and Paul Moynihan, an Irishman with talent, running through the middle.
