The year of 2020 was an interesting year for all and was no different for our Kytherian Football team.
As always, the anticipation for the new winter football season commencing in April roused our teammates to commence early pre-season training to prepare for the upcoming competition. Unfortunately, the world had other plans and the competition was ‘postponed’ for a short period to await the impacts COVID-19 would have on the game and the community. A rollercoaster ensued with the competition proposed to start, then delayed, then to start again only to be once again delayed until eventually we had lost hope that the 2020 season would be cancelled completely. Fortunately, within the time of two weeks, the competition was to start and we scrambled to organise ourselves for the season.
The Kytherian FC All Age 11-aside competition began as you would expect, with a lot of cobwebs to dust off due to the long period without training or matches. The competition ran for a shortened 14 weeks against competitive teams each Sunday in the routine that has become common place for a number of Kytherians and non-Kytherians alike. Together with weekly training and officially sanctioned matches, the Kytherians played hard and finished mid table with a 5-0 win against one of the top four teams to take us out for 2020.
