     2007 YOUTH U19 TEAM


2007 sees the establishment of a Club Youth Under 19 Team. The initial training squad comprising more than 25 eligible players has been drawn from the Rovers, Youth & Thrashers Club Soccer Teams.

The Team is entered into the annual Upper Hutt U19 Tournament which includes teams from all the major Wellington Clubs and Napier City Rovers. The Tournament is scheduled to be held on Saturday 6 & Sunday 7 October 2007 at Awakairangi & Harcourt Parks, Upper Hutt.

This will be the 1st time that Red Sox Manawatu has established such an U19 team, however one of our predecessor Clubs, Manawatu AFC, was a regular participant at the annual Napier Tournament in the 90's and early 2000's when it was able to draw players from PNBHS, before the school became a Club in its own right. Participation in U19 tournaments is an extension of the Youth Development Policy that has been active for the past few seasons and is a strategic element of the sponsorship partnerships that have been recently developed by the Club.

2007 Team:
B Wilkes, M Manson-Petherick, D Middleton, R Wood, R Lowrie, B Johnson, B Barker, N McLeod, C McAlister, M Buckley
R Craig, M O'Connor, M Sheridan, M Whitmore, N Townshend-Daw, M Verastegui, D Blackett, H Hamilton, S Mudgway

Coach:                Andy Rennie
Asst Coach:         Mike Coulter
Manager:             Craig Sheridan
Meals:                 Donna Craig, Jackie Buckley
Convenor:           Martin O'Connor

Tournament Comments:
Despite the match results, the team can take some pride in that they were competitive in both possession and territory in all the games and the scorelines were very respectable. The team is relatively young with only 3 players ineligible next year, whereas all the other teams that were played were much older. Wests defeated Petone in pool play and they both made separate semi-finals, where Wests lost 2-0 to Miramar Rangers while Petone beat Napier City Rovers 2-0. Petone then beat Miramar 1-0 in the final.
