28 July Saturday. Kathmandu Nepal:
OCA Nepal vs OSS Nepal on 28 July 2018, Saturday, 3pm at Grassroots Recreation Center, Mandikatar, Kathmandu.
Good game guys! And great support! We made a comeback after starting 4-0 down. And then kept up the lead despite their re-comeback attempt. This is a result of everyone’s cooperation, hard work, endurance… all qualities of being a Cottonian. Shoutout to Bibhatsu and Dikshyant for defending our goal. See you all at the next gathering. Congrats on 13 – 11 victory over Sanawar on our 159th Founder’s day.
One more thing…
About 3-4 junior OCs asked me recently “can I play the match -or- can I join practice?”
It doesn’t matter if you studied at BCS for 1 year or left after 10th or haven’t been in Nepal or in touch with OCA Nepal for a long time… you don’t need to ask anyone to participate in these events. You have the right if you are an OC. In fact, you are the essence of these events. The older OCs are limited, about a handful, that number will never change. But the younger OCs will keep on coming.
Therefore, I’d like to urge the younger OCs to participate, to initiate and be active. Add all of your OC contacts onto OCA Nepal Facebook group and Viber group: (post or inbox me your mobile number)
(We also play futsal regularly twice a week in the mornings. It’s a mix group along with non-OCs. If you want to join this group [you don’t have to start coming right away if you cant] let me know. Would be amazing to start the day playing football with OCs)
OCA Nepal is proud to announce a friendly Futsal match, the first one ever, between Old Cottonians and Old Sanawarians of Nepal. We would also like to take this opportunity to encourage participation by OCs and OSs to play and to cheer.
- Match Day: 24 June 2017, Saturday
- Time: 10:00am
- Venue: Grassroots Recreation Center, Mandikatar, Kathmandu, Nepal
