The 1st XI football boys have had a hard-fought season in the Counties-Manukau regional competition this year. Although the final result was not as rewarding as we had hoped for, it was evident on the playing field that significant progress has been made throughout the season by each individual to make an overall stronger, better-looking football unit.
Our season did not start to the standard we would have liked and we knew we were missing that little bit extra to change our game completely. After a series of team discussions, we came up with key aspects of the game we would work on. Once these problems were identified the quality of football we were playing increased drastically and is only continuing to increase as winter tournament week approaches.
Despite the exceptionally young team this year, the boys have shown a huge amount of courage and determination. I am very hopeful for the future of Strathallan boys’ football. We are all amped for the tournament and look forward to achieving the goals we have set.
