Please note that placement in teams will only be confirmed once player registration and payment is received.

We had several teams in action over Labour Weekend. Our Under 19 Boys team went up to Napier to play in the Lotto U19 Youth Football Championships organised by Napier City Rovers. They competed against 23 other teams from the North Island in the main draw and ended up in the Finals against Three Kings United. The game ended in a 2 all draw followed by a heartbreaking penalty shootout which our boys lost 6-7! Well done to the team, coaching and support staff.  

Our U17 boys and two of our Girls teams - our U18 team and a development team also competed in the local Lotto U19 tournament organised by Coastal Spirit at Cuthberts Green. Our U17 Boys won their pool, lost their quarter final and went on to play off for 5th & 6th, losing in another dramatic penalty shootout and our Girls U18 team came 3rd in their pool and ended up  5th overall, winning their last game also in a penalty shootout. Our development team ended up playing off for 11 & 12th place - and did really well for a team that only came together 2 days before kick off! Once again, well done to the teams and thanks to all the coaches and managers.
