The Premiers and Development team have finished their season.
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.
