Meet the teams: NL Raiders C


Taking their place in a new division as champions of Division Three, momentum is the name of the game for L'Orange, according to manager Zack Gothelf.

Hopes for the season?

We are going to build on the great football than won us Division Three last year and we're hoping to at a minimum cement our place in Division Two.

Have you made any new signings?

Yes. We've brought in four new faces but players who've been involved with the club for a while. Jonny Blain and Josh Bloom have signed to bolster the front line, Adam Leveson will provide experience and competition at the back, while Marc Woolfe will provide creativity and hard work in the midfield.

Have any players left?

Jamie Weinrich has left to rejoin Boca and we wish him every success with that.

Despite the rumour mill and unnecessary attempts to try to unsettle our players, no-one else has left.

Which players would you describe as the ‘ones to watch’?

All of them - we've got a great squad and we have faith that every single players will be one to watch on their day - what's the point of assembling a squad who are average?

Which team/s do you expect to pose the biggest threat?

From the outset it looks like an extremely competitive league and I fully expect it to be a close run thing all the way through the season. I can't pick one or two teams.

Captain: Jonny Samuel remains captain

What will your team bring to the league this season?

We'll bring what we've brought and been working on for the last few seasons, hard work and great football. It took long enough last season for people to take note of just how well we were playing and we'll continue to for that. We'll bring another solid defence and a creative attack.
