WANDERERS kicked off the new season with a win at the home of league newcomers, SACYD.
After early pressure from the hosts, Wanderers gradually took charge with clever interplay, switching the ball from wing to wing and winning a series of corners, one of which was turned in by playmaker Noah Evans for a 1-0 lead.

The expected rout failed to materialise in the second half due to haphazard finishing by the visitors and resolute work by the home 'keeper. However, Francis completed his hat-trick after 65 minutes, slotting home after a strong run.
