DOHA: Muaither have been promoted to the Qatar Stars League

after seeing off Al Rayyan to victory at the Grand Hamad Stadium

on Saturday.

Muaither, who beat Al Rayyan 1-0 to put themselves on 38 points f

or the season with two matches to spare in the Qatargas League, will

return to the Qatar Stars League following a two-year stint at the

Qatargas League.

Ayoub Al Widrasi netted the game’s lone goal in 36th minute.

The club was founded in 1996 as Al Shabab. It changed its name to

Muaither in 2004. In that same year, Muaither became the first team

in history from the second division to win the Sheikh Jassem Cup. They

defeated Al Wakrah 2–1 in the final.

“We’ve had faith all the way through the season. I think we can look

back and see when we scored late goals and had that always go for

the goal mentality. That helped us immensely and it’s testimony to

the players and staff that everyone’s worked really well together. Said

coach Mohammed Sahel.

“After a slow start to the season, we never panicked. We stuck at our game

and knew we were performing well. Every side has results which aren’t

going to go their way but then we started winning games on regular basis

which really propelled us to the top of the league.
