Runner-up at Naya Nazimabad Football Tournament’19
After what was dubbed as one of the best football team that Lyceum ever had, the fresh batch of players were determined to outshine their seniors and win it all. However, the start to the year was not ideal as I was ruled out to play due to a hamstring and the inexperienced Lyceum side that had had little training struggled to make it out of the group stages of the Alpha and PSSO tournament. With reputation on the line and now with a complete team, we looked to bounce back in the reputable Inter College Lyceum Football Tournament. A hard-fought quarter final against Cedar College saw the end of our journey there but helped the team get into better shape.
Intense practice sessions coupled with the continued hard work of the players eventually resulted in The Lyceum getting into its first final after beating tough opponents throughout the course of the Naya Nazimabad Football Tournament which was given a city-wide coverage. The final against Credo College was a tough loss to bear despite a dominant performance but it wasn’t to be. Nevertheless, The Lyceum football team was able to bag its first trophy, with high hopes of achieving the impossible and winning the prestigious Karachi United Championship in the days to come.
