Green v Red . . .


Liverpool Supporters Club (red) and Ngaruawahia Supporters Club. (Someone is hiding!)

The Ngaruawahia and Liverpool Supporters Club clashed at Centennial Park on Saturday 24th resulting in a 10-6 win to Liverpool.

The Narra scoreboard was not constructed to accommodate double-figure scores however!

After leading 3-1 at the end of the first of four 30-minute quarters, Liverpool began to find their feet and combinations to run in a further 9 goals to Narra’s 3. The match was played in extremely good spirits (as was expected) and near the end of the game Narra allowed goalkeeper Brandon Harry to run the length of the pitch and tuck away a penalty kick.


A Win Seals the Season . . .

A 6-0 win over Claudelands Rovers in a replayed encounter saw the curtain fall on our 2016 senior season. The previous home encounter (July 30th) lasted all of 25 minutes before being called due to dangerous (muddy) field conditions, particularly in the Claudelands goal area.
DJ Latham opened the scorinearly in the 9th minute and followed it up with another two for his hat-trick. Magi Mas Manresa, Marcelo Sosa and Sam French also found the net.
Claudelands have struggled throughout the season, notwithstanding holding us to a scoreless draw at Galloway Park. They have some good lads that worked hard to stem the green onslaught of goals. The likes of Josh Mayo, both the Caper boys and Dean Shaw did well for the visitors.
Narra played the same shape 4-1-4-1 system that they have employed successfully over the last 3 to 4 months
Player of the day was DJ and its been really good to see him step on and now be recognized as a regular first-teamer – the coach Ray “C’mon!” Pooley is well pleased with his efforts and skills.
Narra lacked both quality and speed of passing, and play was at times a bit fragmented, but when the opposition is below par it’s sometimes hard to raise the bar for these sorts of game (especially being the last game of the season with nothing on it).
It was a bit of a lack luster game but the officials did well and kept the game flowing
The bench was fully used with Graeme Kay, Matt Sawyer and Haydn Douglas getting a run (replacing Latham, Kerr-Bell and Mas Manresa).

Manukau City are Lotto NRFL Division Two Champions for 2016 after defeating Ngaruawahia 1-0 at Centennial Park today.

It was an end to end game with the home side creating goal scoring chances early on while City proved dangerous on the counter attack.

Ngara’s Mark Christensen and Manmaresa Magi both sent long range efforts well over the cross bar, before their side found themselves in mayhem in the penalty box from a corner but managed to clear to safety.

Just before half time, Ngara’s ‘keeper Isaac Tetteh pulled off a stunning save to tip an Ishak Nazeem effort over the bar. Continue Reading →
