2019 NRFL PREMIER LEAGUE

MANUKAU UNITED FC VS

EASTERN SUBURBS AFC MARCH • 30 • 2019 CENTRE PARK STADIUM, MANGERE


WELCOME FROM THE BOARD Kia ora koutou, assalamalaykum, warm south Pacific greetings and welcome to Centre Park Stadium in MÄ ngere - the gateway to Aotearoa/NZ. Our aroha and thoughts are with the families affected in recent atrocities in Christchurch. Last Tuesday's vigil here at Centre Park attracted close to 3000 people was a moving tribute to those lives lost and helped to shed some light at a dark time. We will continue to support and stand in solidarity with our Muslim community against racism in NZ. The new-look team are gelling together nicely and we are looking forward to an exciting NRFL Premier League season ahead. Thank you to our volunteers, coaches & managers, club members and supporters for getting behind the team and the development of football in the South Auckland region. Welcome again to our visitors from Eastern Suburbs - we wish your club all the very best for tomorrows national league final at Albany. Support the club and facilities through the kitchen and merchandise stall, and most importantly, enjoy the game. - Hone Fowler, Chairperson

MANUKAU UNITED WOMEN 2019

It’s a pleasure to be named the very first coach of Manukau United Ladies for 2019. Having received recent news that we will be competing in the Conference League we are looking forward to the challenge ahead. We know it will be difficult only one league under the Northern Premier division but we will no doubt be giving everything we have for the badge. Our preparation has been great, I couldn’t ask for a better collective attitude towards trainings and games. We would hugely appreciate you coming down to support the team over the season at Centre Park on a Sunday. Thanks and all the best to everyone involved in the Manukau United Family. - Rhys Ruka
