Auckland Football VS Central Football

Sunday 13 November, 2pm Riverhills Park


Message of welcome This weekend’s game against Central is going to be keenly contested by both sides as the winner will gain their first points of the league. I’m sure Matt and all the players are aware of that and will be doing all they can to put out their best performance. The Auckland players will be keen to perform and can’t deny that will be in the back of their minds. However I will be looking for us to put the strong parts of our game into action for the 90 minutes - something we haven’t managed yet.

If we can finish our scoring opportunities and retain possession throughout the game; we’ll put ourselves in a position to win games. We hope you enjoy the match. Tracy Wrigley


Focus on:

Jacqui Hand If it wasn’t for an unfortunate injury, Jacqui Hand would still be kitting up for Auckland in the National Women’s League and preparing for her end of year school exams. Instead, the 17-year old finds herself joining fellow New Zealand U-17 team mates Hannah Blake, Grace Jale, Nadia Olla and Malia Steinmetz in jetting off to their second FIFA age-group World Cup in as many months. Hand earned a late call up to Leon Birnie’s 21-strong squad for the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Papua New Guinea due to an unfortunate injury to midfielder Juliana Los. “I was really happy to be called into the U-20 squad,” says Hand. “To be chosen by the coaching staff made me feel quite honoured and I can’t wait to go to the U-20 Women’s World Cup, it’s going to be amazing.” New Zealand U-17 Head Coach Gareth Turnbull says Hand is deserving of her call up and believes it is a perfect example for any aspiring footballer that opportunities can be just around the corner. “Through Jacqui’s performances over the past 12 months we are excited at the level of potential she possesses, thus is deserving of this late call up.” “It highlights that opportunities can sometimes just be around the corner, so it’s always important for young players to continue to show their qualities at every occasion.” Hand was able to show her qualities on the world stage in Jordan recently for the FIFA U-17 World Cup. “Jordan was amazing. It was an awesome country to visit and to play with and against

all the top players in the world was an incredible experience.” “It is something I had dreamed of since I was a little girl,” she adds. Hand believes her time in Jordan gave her invaluable experience and now knows what to expect when it comes to attending such events like the upcoming U-20 World Cup. “Training and playing in a hot country, eating different foods and staying in hotels with the team has given me invaluable experience, as well as living like a professional athletes and being amongst the best football players in the world.” When 2018 comes around, the Eastern Suburbs attacker will have two World Cups under her belt and hopes to use that experience to her advantage in France for the 2018 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup. “I want to be able to use the experience to show leadership and help the team in 2018.” And, what about those end of year school exams? Not to worry, the talented teen has already gained her NCEA Level 3. “I will be missing my school exams, but I was advised earlier in the year that if I do go to the World Cup my practice exams in the middle of the year will count instead. So, I worked hard during the year and passed them all.” The kiwis are in pool C and will meet Ghana in their opening group match on November 14 before taking on the United states and France on November 17 and 21 respectively.

Parris overcomes adversity in time for PNG Eastern Suburbs’ Jade Parris is Papua New Guinea bound with the New Zealand U-20 team for the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup, however, it wasn’t all plain sailing for the talented teen. Seven weeks out from the World Cup squad announcement the 19-year old tore her MCL playing for Suburbs in the Lotto NRFL Women’s Premier League against Western Springs, a match which confirmed her sides second place finishing in the league. “I was told it would take six to eight weeks for it to repair, so I knew it was a very tight turn around and I knew every piece of rehab I did would help,” says Parris. “I was cycling every day and I got running quite soon with guidance from my physio who I was seeing three times a week to keep my knee going.” It wasn’t the first time Parris has been in a race against the clock for such a big event, with a similar injury occurring two and a half months out from the FIFA U-17 World Cup in Costa Rica two years ago. “I strained my ACL before the 2014 FIFA U-17 World Cup, it was the same knee as well, so I knew I could come back if I rehabbed well and didn’t come back earlier than I should.” “I also had some amazing support, keeping me focussed on the dream and keeping me positive,” she adds. The MCL tear was her second big setback on her road to Papua New Guinea having originally not made the squad for the Qualifiers. Although, she earned a late call-up

due to an injury to a travelling player. “Not being selected definitely made me hungrier to get back in the squad because I had already had a taste of international football and I knew it was what I wanted to do so I kept training hard and managed to be called in which was very rewarding.” “Through Pathway to Podium, I had lots of workshops around mental toughness and about how success isn’t always one line going up, there will be lots of bumps, so I realised this was just one of those times and it kept me working hard.” Now fully recovered from her injury scare, Parris has been involved in matches against Papua New Guinea and Mexico U-20’s as the kiwi’s continue their preparations for the main event. “Everything has been coming together and the team has been working hard both individually and collectively,” says Parris. “The intensity at trainings is high and we push each other a lot. It’s a very positive environment and I’m excited to see what we can achieve as a group.”


“We want to push out of the group stage. We really want to perform well and show what we are capable of.” It all starts on November 14 when Parris and her team mates take on Ghana before coming up against the United States and France on November 17 and 21 respectively.
