Morocco Day 5 & 6

11 July 2019

An update from the fifth and sixth days including a gallery of pictures.

Day Five saw Latics open their pre-season campaign in the evening against Sporting Club Chabab Mohammedia in a training game of three 30-minute periods.

In the morning the team trained to finalise their plans before having time in the afternoon to rest ahead of the 7pm kick-off.

A number of trialists featured on Pitch No.1 that is overlooked by the Stade Adrar which the club play in on Sunday.

The line-ups for each game are below:

Game 1
Woods, Mills, Sefil, Stott, Iacovitti, Missilou, Sylla, 14 Trialist, Branger-Engone, 11 Trialist, Vera.

No substitutions made.

Game 2
Woods, Sefil, Hamer (18 Trialist on ‘26), Stott, Iacovitti, Sylla, 11 Trialist (15 Trialist on ‘18), Missilou, Maouche, Branger, 21 Trialist.

Game 3
Zabret, Swaby, Iacovitti (Sefil on ‘14), Stott, 18 Trialist, Missilou (Sylla on ‘12), Maouche, Robinson, 20 Trialist, Vera, 15 Trialist (21 Trialist on 12’).

All three games finished goalless with Latics increasingly getting better in each in terms of creating chances whilst dominating possession in all the fixtures against a tough opponent who were hard to break down.

Also, whilst the games were taking place Gevaro Nepomuceno arrived in Agadir and joined the team for the evening meal to meet everyone ahead of the second tour fixture at the weekend.

Gevaro was given an extended break after his international call-up for Curacao in the Gold Cup last month.

Today (Day Six), sees a change to the usual schedule as the team will have the morning to recover by taking another trip to the beach for a short training session.

The afternoon and evening has been dedicated as free time allowing the players to explore Morocco as they wish in groups for the first time before reporting back to the hotel ahead of getting back into proper training sessions from Friday before the Raja Casablanca game on Sunday.
