The boys will continue to train this off season in preparation for another promotion bid next season. We will be competing in the 4th tier of the Ethiopian football pyramid, the ‘Higher Division’ upon finishing in the top two places in that division, we will go to a month long Summer regional tournament. The best teams from that tournament will be promoted into the 3rd tier, The National League.

 

We will continue to work tirelessly to develop players and give them every advantage that we can. We look forward to the coming challenges and successes that we will have!

Final Match update


After securing the title & promotion a couple of 1-0 losses followed, but we’ve wrapped up the season on a high note with a 6:3 victory. The win takes Meheret’s points haul to 40/51 possible points for the season. We scored 44 goals across the season & allowed only 17, averaging out to 2.3 goals per game for Meheret, and allowing .89 goals per game. Top goal getters on the season were Africa Areza-10, Habtamu Chelkeba-8, and Teyedrose Darese-6.

We now await the other divisions to wrap up their seasons where we will then participate in final ceremony for the season with the other top teams. We will continue to train and prepare for next season as we aim for promotion yet again. Much more to come from these boys!

Unbeaten run extends to 13 matches!

With a few injuries, as well as a few players being called into play for the Addis Ababa city team for a few weeks we’ve continued to manage to earn 3 points. The depth of the squad and commitment of the boys to work for each other is exciting to see!  Habtamu Chelkeba & Africa Areza each scored a goal today. With four matches left to play we are on 37 points and have a goal of ending the season on 49 points winning out the rest of the season.

3-1 Meheret

The second round of the season kicked off with three more points being picked up for the boys. Goals from Rosa & two from Teddy secured the points & kept Meheret a top of the table! This was also the first chance we had to show off our new kits! Meheret now have 25 points out of a possible 30 through ten matches.
