As we head into week two after a close win for the Egmont Seeds Premiers, a close loss for the Pacific Fuel Haul Division one against New Plymouth Old Boys and a big Win for our Gardiner Plumbing Snr 3rds over Clifton the boys are all looking forward to trying to win back the Dan O’Brien Shield against Spotswood United this weekend. This year we have no colts and Spotswood United has no thirds so to win back the Carbine Shield we need to win 2 from 2 games. Our Snr 3rds also have a big game against BellBlock which is always a great game that could go either way.
The Premiers are looking fit and have got through week 1 with no major Injuries so we are hoping to put out our strongest line up to go to battle with last year’s Champions.
