Coach’s Comments

MCAFC

Coach’s Comments For many clubs their foray into today’s Chatham Cup fixture will be the most exciting fixture left in their season. A good cup run can lift a club that has been in the doldrums. In recent years there are more unexpected clubs going on a good cup run and some most unlikely clubs winning the coveted prize.

Head Coach Kevin Fallon Assistant Coach Ricardo Espinoza Manager Jason Ormsby Physios Michelle Pravin Zihan Zhang

My experience of the competition brings back many warm memories. I have been fortunate enough to win the Chatham Cup in 1977 as player/coach of the now defunct Nelson United. The victory lifted the whole town. I also was involved in two losing finals in 1983 and 1984 with the successful Gisborne City team who also are now not in existence. In more recent years I took a bunch of schoolboys at Mount Albert Grammar school into the competition. We had some exciting times knocking out some established senior teams including our opponents today Kerikeri. If I remember correctly it was a 7-2 MAGS victory. In the MAGS team that day were some handy players including Jake Porter, Ben Mata, Max Mata and Sarpreet Singh, all who have gone onto bigger and better stages. Jake Porter got 4 goals and the man of the match award. We eventually exited the competition losing 1-4 to a competent

Onehunga Sports team. This year I didn’t see any school teams in the draw. Have they been withdrawn from the competition? I know it cost a fortune to enter! There will no doubt be some members of the Kerikeri team who played in that 7-2 loss. No team likes to be beaten by schoolboy opposition. Similarly no team likes to be beaten by clubs from a lower grade competition. We are expected to win and be in the hat for the next round. Today there will be a number of upsets around the country. That’s the lure of the cup and the reason why so many players will be so looking forward to today’s game. Enjoy the excitement and see you all in the clubrooms after the game. Kevin Fallon, Manukau City AFC First Team Head Coach

Fashion. David Bowie wrote a song about it, Derek Zoolander embodies it and the Mantis, well, we know a thing or two about a thing or two. Collectively, like some sort of time traveling chameleon, we have strut our stuff through the 80’s, 90’s, noughties and the tens. Now for the aficionados amongst you we are talking; Hugh Wrights “Hypercolour” heat activated colour changing t-shirts, Kurt Cobain’esque woollen jumpers, lovebead necklaces, Dickies pants, Reebok pumps, Starter caps, Rats-tails, chrome steel wallet chains, undercuts, mega fades, shorts below the knee, shorts above the knee and super-sun-in frosted tips. And let me tell you, that ain’t the half of it bae, in the immortal words of Carl Carlton, we some “bad mama-jamas”. Our footy related attire is no different. We look good. It’s hard not to when your barnstorming right midfielder is the proprietor of a small haberdashery. Every year we tran-

scend the latest trends and bust out a new design, this year is no different. However, being this far ahead of the curve you tend to gather admirers. We’ve notice y’all lookin, even some fly new gears around the place, but you know what they say, “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery…”, I won’t finish that Oscar Wilde quote, but it’s worth a Google. Actually, what am I talking about? We wear T-shirts and a beer stained hoodie. To be fair I am lucky we get them for free, I haven’t bought a new t-shirt in 8 years. Cheers Mr V. However, things may be about to change… Oh yeah football. This week we wrote a strongly worded letter to the AFF. Zing.

The Mantis

Player Probe:

Matt ‘‘chop-some-wood’’ Chapman Matt is the son of Pinocchio, he is made from wood, he loves wood, he breaths wood. If you stand close enough to Matt, you can smell the faint scent of Pohutakawa saw dust. Breath-taking. Matt plays centre back when he’s not competing at the Easter show tree climbing championship, where he is the reigning Silver Birch medal holder. Shout him a beer at the bar, he will dazzle you with his chainsaw impression.

Honey Badgers

The Manukau City Honey Badgers™ continued their unbeaten run as they swept away a young Metro team 4-1. The first half was relatively tame which saw an overwhelming amount of possession for the Honey Badgers wasted until an exquisite free-kick from Cameron “Campbell” Bell broke the deadlock. At the break the team talk was a short one with one clear message, “score early and keep possession afterwards”. And that the Honey Badgers did, with Duran “Dewrin” Naidoo scoring within the first minute of the 2nd half. The Honey Badgers™ complacency led to Metro clawing one back before Duran restored the 2 goal buffer with his 2nd goal

of the season. It wouldn’t be a Honey Badgers game without a little bit of controversy. After the Metro centre forward had been taken down inside the box, a penalty was given to Metro. The resulting penalty was calmly put away until it was called back due to 2 of their players encroaching into the box before the ball was kicked. Murphy’s law dictated that the follow up penalty would be missed and, cruelly, it was. Metro were further punished when Duran put away another for his 2nd hat-trick of the season.
