   Jose Enrique Vigil has worn the Green and Black number 8 for about 19 seasons and is looking to join the 20 season club when he plays for the Archers next season. His contributions to the club is unparalleled as the team’s first choice corner taker. Even with his pace and stamina diminishing he commands respect from his peers and the younger members in the team.

“He’s one of the players last to leave the gym. He works a lot on his game even in his advanced age, we have no excuses not to work hard.” Samuel Vela said to AP

“We look up to him like a big brother. He has a lot of experience and when the day comes for him to hang his boots, then I hope we’re ready to take over the leader role. He is one of our role models and he is well loved by the team and the fans” the 22 year old wonderkid added

Team owner and manager, Jimbo, also sang praises of the 34 year old winger and told media that he is a very underrated player.

“He rarely gets injured. That alone is a testament on how well he keeps his body fit and ready before every match. He just goes in and does his job. Even in his early days in the academy up to now. He’s special for us and we’re lucky to have him” Jimbo told AP

Vigil is set to play his 667th match of his career and will be looking to aid the team secure a 3rd place finish this afternoon against Blue Wave FC’s B team.


   Archers wonderkid, Samuel Vela, called for his teammates’ to grab a top 5 finish to end the season. The Archers are currently sitting in 5th place after a convincing win to newly promoted UFL side, LEGO-DANMARK, 5-1 at the Stadio L’Arciere.

“We pretty much have top 5 in our sights last week. We must keep fighting for a RoW qualification spot. Not having any piece of international competitions next season will be a failure in our part.” The 22-year-old told Archer Pride.

He went on to add that he is expecting great things for next season and is very excited for the prospects of the club.

“Marring some departures to our key players, we’ll have a pretty strong team next season. Some of us may be young but I’m sure we can fight for another top 5 run. We’re confident and we trust our manager.”

   The season has been pretty much up and down for the Verdeneri and their supporters would love to retain their current rank if not climb higher up the standings. Age has been a constant foe for the team this season as Archer talisman, Sebastián Ocio, and experienced winger  José Enrique Vigil are both in their mid 30’s with Ocio due to retire at the end of the season. The team are still looking for possible replacements for the duo.
