Auckland Football Federation has named its squads ahead of the 2017 Rose Weir Rose Bowl scheduled for October 7-9.
In its 60th year the Weir Rose Bowl tournament is a well-known youth competition for girls and boys and there is always a lot of pride involved.
Newly appointed Football Development Officer in the Talent space Ben Bate has high hopes for the Federation, which has performed strongly in recent years.
“Auckland Football have historically performed very strongly at the Weir Rose Bowl and this year will be no different.
“With the talented group of players and coaches we have assembled I believe we will be extremely competitive.”
With eight AFF sides featuring, a vast range of coaches have been assembled, all of whom bring their own experiences from their individual coaching and playing environments.
“We have a great group of coaches this year who bring experience in coaching as well as playing,” Bate said.
“Jo Dawkins and Calvin Opperman are current Northern League Premier players while Emily Cooper and Rebekah Van Dort also compete in the top flight in the Women’s game.
“We also have a former Papua New Guinea international in Maurie Wasi who will lead the AFF Galaxy side.”
Like many football competitions, the trophy for this tournament was donated by a person who was passionate about the beautiful game.
Tom Weir has a lasting memorial of his contribution to junior football in the form of this annual competition for Under 12’s, the Weir Rose Bowl.
