Football is full of cliches but today the football community truly has lost one of its pioneers! Cyriĺle Regis paved the way for so many black footballers playing today. He endured racial taunts and overcame them so much so that many playing today couldn’t even  fathom; rising to the top of his profession, representing his country at a time when even a section of his own fans booed him.

Cyriĺle truly was a gentleman that paved the way. We at Continental Star benefited from his support over the years and we are both grateful and thankful.

All those involved  at Continental Star send out our condolences to the Regis family.

Star get off the mark with a win away to AFC Solihull.  Two goals either side of the half by Davion Hamilton was enough to secure the points, after the home side was awarded a dubious equalizing goal, after it appeared that the ball had entered the goal directly from a throw-in. Star lifted their game and created several chances as both teams went for the win. However it was Davion who struck the winner with an effort from 25 yards out that flew pass the hapless keeper.
