Aces have resorted to fielding 6 of their youth players and it has paid dividends as the ‘new’ squad gels under 16-year old captain and central defender Bradley Cross.
The Gold City Giants have had a terrible season but have moved up a gear recently having won three of their last four games. Last Saturday saw our youngsters fire 5 goals past Garankuwa in their 2nd consecutive game keeping a clean sheet.
Maccabi were at one stage running away with the league but have shown signs of stuttering and now have a serious threat in JDR Stars who are 4-points off the leaders with a game in hand.
Tomorrows match will be a David vs Goliath game especially with the youthful Aces side but word in the camp is that they intend going for broke by using their pace and skills against the Balfour Park franchise.
