With all of the teams in the men’s senior club at home this weekend and the Chatham cup first round. All teams that took the field this Saturday came home with 3 points, calling for the President’s Shout at the club rooms afterwards. An expensive evening for one club member! No-one can complain when teams are winning and everyone is enjoying their football. On top of that, the 22 junior teams playing and coming back to the club for their player-of-the-day awards always ensures a good atmosphere at the club on a Saturday.

Prior to a Saturday game if you have any changes or requests please get them to the same email address by the Thursday afternoon.

The Prem men started off their Chatham Cup run with a good display over Melchester, winning with a full time score of 6-0. Melchester started off the game well with some early possession but then a couple of goals to Tech gave the home side some room to play. Tom Petersen scored with a back post head from a corner, Michael Neaverson netted from inside the box, Kalib Bouma-Tucker with a fine left foot volley from outside the box and George McCall with a well taken strike, give the half time score 4-0. The second half resulted in two more Tech goals, Cam Higgins taking a penalty and scoring from the rebound, and a second to Kalib from the head. A good start to the Chatham Cup for the team.
