Mioks made a statement


The Enga Provincial Government sponsored-club, Enga Mioks have put on a compelling case to start their 2023 Digicel-ExxonMobil Cup campaign. Mioks have registered seven (7) straight wins on the trot.

They have yet to taste a defeat. No one expected them to win seven consecutive games, let alone sit on top of the ladder. They are the surprise package.

Mioks had inconsistent seasons couple of years ago, but they have suddenly rejuvenated and found their form this season.

With the signing of new coach and addition of few players, the Engan franchise is slowly becoming a force to be reckoned with.

Mioks have won seven straight games and are sitting comfortably on top of the ladder. The way they are playing, they will be hard to stop.

Make no mistake, the high-flying green and yellow outfit are on a mission to win a premiership this year, but they still have a lot of work to do to stake their claim for the title.

The head coach of Enga Mioks, Billy Gau said: “It is too early to get excited because we have a long

season ahead. However, the wins against the two top teams to start the campaign for this season is a good sign for us.

“If you look at the list of players we have, the team is made up of mostly young and raw talents that we just brought in.

“The only experienced player is the veteran forward, Supa Kokote, but the rest are in-experienced

players.

“The effort of this young team in the seven rounds is encouraging and I think they can do better than that.

“Despite the wins, there is more to work on and we have identified the areas of our game that needs improvement. We have to minimize errors and get our attack right going forward. If we can fix those, then we would be expecting more good results,” he added.

Mioks won their first Premiership in the Intercity Cup in 2000. Since then, they have had a twenty-

three-year premiership drought.

They won the Digicel Cup Minor-Premiership Trophy in 2018 but failed to snatch the bigger

silverware. After that short success, the club took a downward turn because of schisms and politics within the team.

Five years later, Mioks are now the premiership heavyweights. The determined Engan lads have

made a big statement and shown their premiership credentials to other teams. Mioks are primed to win the competition this season, given their undefeated run lately.
