FC Thrissur kickstart their campaign with a win

FC Thrissur picked up a win over SAT Tirur in their first game of the season. They went into half-time leading by a goal and scored again in the second half to make it 2-0.

A goal by SAT Tirur’s captain Rishad in the second half threatened to change the balance of the game, but FC Thrissur held on to bag all three points.

Jibin Devassy scored both the goals for FC Thrissur.

A row erupted after FC Thrissur players complained that their Ghanian player Yemoah Santacruz was racially abused by the SAT Tirur players.
