City Elite Development Squad kicked off their pre-season with a well-deserved win over Slovenian outfit, NK Gorica.
Jordy Hiwula scored a hat-trick and second half substitute Thierry Ambrose added the other two minutes after climbing off the bench to give the Blues a handsome 3-0 victory.
It was a year to the day since Patrick Vieira took charge of his second game in charge of the Elite Development Squad at the same venue.
On that occasion, his young side had gone down to a narrow 1-0 defeat to Gorica’s Croatian namesakes at the NK Novigrad Stadium - the picture postcard venue on the edge of the Adriatic Sea, a pleasant five minute stroll from the hotel which has been home to the Blues’ training camp for the past six days.Read full match report
