The season got away to a flying start last week when the seniors accounted for Petone Settlers by two goals to nil in a close game. While the defence gave the coach many anxious moments the forwards combined well enough in some neat passing movements. There is no reason why this forward line should not become a forceful scoring unit.
This year the club is fortunate in having a core of non-playing officials who are able to devote their energy to the tedious business of organising teams and matches. The Committee managed to arrange six practice games which served as a useful guide in the selection of the teams. Mr. R. (Bob) Cocks is once again coaching the senor team and training is in the capable hands of Mr. W. Landreth whoso P.T. sessions have been well received by the players. Former NZU Blue and senior skipper, Ernie Harris conducts the ball work in the gym.
