1st XI FOOTBALL SUCCESS

On Wednesday evening the Burnside 1st XI football team managed to win their 3rd trophy this year.  They had already won the league cup with a winning record of having played 10 games and winning 9.  The team went up to Papamoa during tournament week and managed to win the Rex Dawkins Cup.  The final trophy was won against St. Andrew's and this was our knockout cup.  It was a hard fought win that went to penalties.  Luckily our keeper (Nika Ross) managed to save their final attempt giving us the victory.  A huge big thanks has to go to the entire team but even more thanks must go to our 2 coaches.  Andrew Bull has been with the team for 6 years and Graham McMann has been helping out for the last 2 years.  Without their guidance, we would have never got to this point.
