Southern League preview

We hope to see you all to Cuthberts Green on Sunday where we have not won so far in this South Island league. We play Southland FC from the far South as we make history as the two clubs meet for the first time.

Southland have done well to qualify for the league and have some handy players. Similar to Queenstown it seems the opposition carry many foreigners whom bring some real unique qualities to the game. Their creativity and speed we will need to deal with to get over the line on Sunday.

Looking at the table, if we win our last three games then it’s possible we can win the league so that starts Sunday.

Another special mention is a huge thank you to Claudio for his contribution this season as it’s his last game for us today. Claudio has been with us since the very start of pre-season and he has been an absolute class act. The free kick specialist has scored three of them for us and the most memorable was the crucial goal that turned our season around when he got the late winner against Ferrymead Bays. Please join me in thanking Claudio for the season and wish him well for his next venture in traveling the globe and heading home to Chile, thank you Claudio.

Enjoy the game folks, we are in some good form and we are looking to play very positively.

See you in the clubrooms after for a beer.
