ECBAFC 16th Grade Metro Team tour

ECBAFC 16th Grade Metro Team tour


We decided to organize a couple of pre-season friendlies away from Auckland as a team building experience for the team.


After an enthusiastic response from a team in Rotorua and Taupo the event was organized.


On March 5th we played the Geyzers U17 Federation team. It was an extremely hot day but the boys were really up for a challenge.  We started off well and the game was very physical.  After conceding two goals our team showed real character and came back to win 3-2. 


We went back to Rotorua United’s club rooms for a shared lunch laid on by the club.


Afterwards the whole team went to the luge for several hours.  We all enjoyed a team BBQ at our accommodation and an early night before travelling to Taupo the next morning.


It was a cooler day, we were a bit tired but still looking forward to a good game against a local college trialing their first teams. We started slowly but came away with a 10-0 victory. Again the team laid on a lunch for us before we hit the road back to Auckland.


It was a great experience for the 14 boys and the 13 families who came along.


We can’t wait to start the season!
