Dakshin Surma 0-2 Beanibazar
IN PREPARATION FOR the Greater Sylhet Upazila Cup 2017, Dakshin Surma and Beanibazar played the first tournament friendly. Dakshin Surma had made a shrewd appointment by naming Aktar Hussain as player manager.
Dakshin Surma started brightly, but the overall quality of the Beanibazar team and strength in depth was a factor as Emdad Rahman’s selection ran out 2-0 winners with goals from Saim Hussain and Atiqur Rahman either side of the break.
Abul Hussain and Abdul Komor led the line for most of the game as Abdul Wahid dictated the pace. The introduction of Ash Rahman to the Beanibazar team was a popular choice, and the orthodox frontman’s running power and finishing is likely to be a key feature of the attack this year.
Manager Emdad Rahman said, “A good run out and win today. Aktar Hussain likes to set up a hard running team but we handled that threat well. The boys were composed and unhurried. I’m glad we stayed injury free. Gous Ahmed impressed in goal and he will learn lots from working with seasoned campaigner Kunu Miah. For us it’s very much a case of one game at a time.”
