9th Grade 'Clean Up Plate' at Eastern Suburbs

 Our 9 Grade A1 boys entered the Eastern Suburbs Tournament consisting of
 24 teams keen to bring home something for their trophy cabinet - and that
 they did.  Pool play was tough with a draw and one narrow loss, but the
 boys just got better as they went, creaming Hibiscus coast 3-0 in the
 plate semi final.

 On to the final - They say it's a measure of any team to come back from a
 deficit to win, but the share determination of these boys and their team
 spirit saw them fight back from 2-0  at half time to win the final 3-2 in
 extra time v Bucklands Beach.

 As plate winners (although bitter sweet) this did allow our boys to bring
 home some much deserved silverware.

 This year's 9th Grade squad is coached by Giles Hoy and are a handpicked
 selection of 9th Grade talent from both Greenhithe and Bays clubs. So far
 this new squad is unbeaten in Saturday football and are starting to gel
 just fine.
They are not only as playing well as players, but starting to work well together as a team - both on and off the field. "It's a fight backs like today that will do these lads well - they will draw huge confidence from this victory." Says coach Giles. This 2012 season the squad has made the championship finals at both Hamilton and Manurewa pre-season tournaments. We at the club wish the team, coach Giles and Manager See Mu Kim well for the remainder of the season.
