Paul Munster Winter break


Paul Munster, the London City striker, winner of the CPSL’s goalscoring title and Rookie of the Year in 2004, who signed for Slavia Prague of the Czech Republic on November 19 following a six-week trial, is heading home for the traditional two-month winter break taken by that country’s top league. Munster will be returning for training and preparation for the next league match scheduled against SK Sigma Olomouc on Saturday, February 26. The break follows what the club considers to be a highly satisfactory beginning for the Northern Ireland-born goalscorer who commented a few days ago on his stay at Slavia Prague, on the club Web site:“The team played well in the last five games with four wins and one draw, everyone was working hard and the atmosphere was super. I believe that we will be even better in the spring…. Our aim is to qualify for the European Cup…. The beginning was good and may teammates helped me a lot…. I also did well in training and while I still have a lot to learn, I am picking up the language.” Speaking of the game against Blsany, Munster said: “It was a valuable experience for me.”The 22 year old Munster played one reserve game since signing, a game in which he scored the opening goal in a 2-0 win on November 19.
