Fleetwood United Football Club competed in their first competitive fixture on Saturday afternoon in Dubai as they managed to beat Royal FC 1-0 in the UAE FA Third Division.

The game, which was played at Dubai Sports City, was the first step in what has been a long project for Fleetwood, and it worked out perfectly as the side kept a clean sheet and netted their first goal 70 minutes into the clash.

Forward Chiekh Dieng wrote his name into the history books by scoring the goal, even after being named on the bench to start the game.

His goal means that the Dubai Cods currently have a 100% record in the Dubai league system, with their game against Zamalek to be played on Sunday 6 March (8pm local time).
