SOUTH China handed relegation doomed British Forces a 7-0 thrashing yesterday - but lost midfielder Leslie Santos in the process. Santos is out of Friday's league clash against Instant-Dict but hopes to be fit for next month's World Cup campaign in Lebanon. The midfield man - a second-half sub for Bosnian striker Anto Grabo - was carried off with a knee injury before he touched the ball. ''It's not a serious injury but I'll probably be out for at least two weeks,'' he said. Seven different players scored at Shamshuipo Sports Ground as the Caroliners notched their biggest win of the season. Grabo opened the scoring after seven minutes and Chan Wai-chiu scored from 20 yards to make it 2-0 in the 21st minute. Loh Wai-chi stretched the lead with a header two minutes before half-time. Second half spoils were shared between Chiu Chung-man (50), Koo Kam-fai (68), Chu Yue-tai (74) and Lee Fuk-wing (88). Meanwhile, Instant-Dict have announced they will spend at least $8 million next season looking for an overseas centre forward and star quality centre back. Instant-Dict are currently on a budget of $6 million but club chairman Tam Wai-tong said they would increase that to at least $8 million in looking for an overseas centre forward and centre back of star quality. ''We're going to look for top-class quality players this time because we think we can do really well in the league and the Cup competitions.'' he said.
