1st win on the road for Youth Development

Arriving at Seaside Park, we had a slightly changed team due to injuries and players being away. Still, we changed and the lads warmed up in their new training shirts and waited for the game currently being played to finish. Up  then stepped an official neutral referee and off we went.  Playing into both a good wind and bright sunshine, the team were put under early pressure from Otahuhu. However, the new pairing of Thomas McKee and Kyle Watson stood up well and weathered the storm. Brett Zinzan looked strong at right back and Dylan Thompson was doing a great job at left back. Old warrior Grank Muckle tried his luck in the centre of midfield, alongside the 'Speedy' Coster, with Dylan Smyth Kirk on the right and Shane Holmes on the left completing midfield. Up front were the reliable pairing of  Roddy Peat and the 'Scarlet Pimpernel'. Between the sticks was the familiar face of Stuart Ruddell.

As the game entered the 9th minute, an Otahuhu player hit the deck injured and we put the ball out for him to receive treatment. As the Ref stood above the player, there was a sudden commotion and alot of shouting coming from that direction. Suddenly the ref produces a red card and Otahuhu are reduced to 10 men with the injured player given his marching orders.

Restarting, Waiuku were playing some nice football but still lacked that penetration. Howeverever, within a few minutes, Roddy Peat finds himself in space after good work from his team mates and buries it into the net ! 1-0 to Waiuku!! Back to the restart and calls to tighten up were given from the side. Unfortunately, that was not listened to and after a defensive mixup, the Otahuhu forward found himself in open space on the edge of our area. Out comes Stuart to force and error, but the ball is chipped over his head and into an empty goal. We had held our lead for about a minute. Still, back to the grindstone and Waiuku kept having a go! Good play kept putting Otahuhu under pressure but the break through was not there. As Waiuku pressed, the 'Pimpernel' charged into the box and was cut down from behind. 'Got to be a penalty' I thought, but to my bewilderment, the ref warns the 'Pimpernel'  to stop diving and we get nothing!Then bad luck hit us with Shane having to leave the field due to a quad problem, so the taem was changed with Roddy moving to the wing and Gareth Morgan taking the front man role. Waiuku were looking strong going forward but always vulnerable to the counter and so Dylan Thompson was given a breather whilst Scott Withers moved into left back. However, another robust challenge from Otahuhu (We were getting alot of that!) caught Scotty, injuring his back and he was forced from the field and so Dylan had a very short breather before getting back on. 

Half time and the team talk is one of optimism. We can take this. Just be stronger in the challenge and take them on. This we did and Otahuhu were starting to flag. Both Gareth and the Pimpernel had chances, with Gareth hitting the bar and the resulting melee only just being cleared. Then with 20 minutes to go, Gareth comes off to be replaced with the Boro legend 'The Wolfman'! Large on stature and not particularly quick, he caused the Otahuhu defence to take notice and thus leave the Pimernel to run through. Indeed, within minutes of coming on, Wolfman was put through, but due to the terrible boots loaned by Stuart (Stuart was actually wearing the Wolfman's boots!!), he slipped in the mud and the chance went begging. Then after another great through ball, Wolfman was on the edge of the six yard box when he was hauled down from behind and as he tried to get up, was brought down a second time. However, yet again the referee was unimpressed and waved play on! Was this to end in a 1-1 draw? No!! Roddy Peat once again got himself into a good position and from the edge of the area hit a speculative shot towards the goal. The Otahuhu keeper must have had the sun in his eyes because he was slow to react and the ball flew into the top left corner! 2-1 Waiuku!!

Waiuku kept it tight this time around and shut out Otahuhu, completing the first win of the season to the Development squad! To be honest, once again we gave a soft goal away but we did deserve alot more than we got today. Spirit and the will to fight got us through and the man of the match went to Roddy Peat for his goals and workrate. Mention has to go to Dylan Thompson for outstanding defending when he is not normally a defender, to Stuart for some good saves that kept us in the game and to the 'Pimernel' who was given some rough treatment by Otahuhu but still kept tormenting them! We played as a team and it showed. Things are now gelling and we are getting stonger. Our next game is at home against Uni-Mt Wellington at George St KO 2.45. Well done lads and lets start climbing the table!!

Brat surveyed himself in the small cracked mirror of the Gent’s Temporary Dressing-room and decided that primrose and violet did not become him any better than they became Simon.Gucci Wallets 39 It would take Roger Clint’s dark face to do justice to those springtime glories. Roger Clint would probably look dashing in them. He was in no mood to look favourably on Roger Clint.Gucci Wallets 38 Whenever he had caught sight of Eleanor this afternoon it seemed that she was in the company of Mr. Clint, and what is more, Gucci Wallets 37seemed to be enjoying the company.Brat tugged the yellow visor a little farther over his eyes. A sick misery burned in him; a spiritual heartburn.“What’s it got to do with you?” said a voice in him. “You’re her brother: remember?”“Shut up!”“Can’t have your cake and eat it, you know.”“Shut up!”He walked out of the almost deserted dressing-room and went to find Chevron. Theserious business of the day was over and there was an air of relaxation.Christian Louboutin Women Shoes 89 In the shade of the trees competitors who had taken part in the sober events were now walking ponies and coffeehousing while they waited for the bending race. Alone for the moment, on a solid dun pony, was Peggy Gates, Christian Louboutin Women Shoes 90her eyes roving over the crowd in search of someone. She looked tired and discouraged. As Brat came level with her he paused and said:“That was very bad luck.”“Oh, hullo, Mr. Ashby! What was?”“The big drum.”“Oh, that!” she said, and smiled at him. “Oh, that was just one of thosethings.”She sounded quite philosophical about it, and yet Brat could have sworn that when he came up she had tears in her eyes.“Good luck to the race,”Christian Louboutin Women Shoes 88 she said.

There are many students smoking in senior high school,D&G Wallets 14 the reason may be that they think they look cool or appear to be more mature while having a cigarette at hand.But there are a lot of reasons not to smoke. Smoking does harm to our health.It is dangerous to our heart and lung.D&G Wallets 12 A lot of diseases are caused by cigarettes.Cigarettes also have terrible smell.The seconghand smoke can also be dangerous to the others who stand around you. Therefore, no smoking in public is a strict regulation in many countries.D&G Wallets 13 And the most important thing is that once you come into addicitive,it's hard to get rid of it. So,we must keep far from the cigarette——for everybody's health.A kind of little car may someday take the place of today's big ones. If people drive such cars in the future, there will be less pollution in the air. There will be more space for parking in cities. The streets will be less crowded. And driving will be safer as these little cars can go only 65 km per hour. The future cars will be fine for getting round a city, but they will not be useful for long trips. Little cars will go 200km, before needing to stop for more gas.Christian Louboutin Women Shoes 52 If big cars are still used along with the small ones, two sets of roads will be needed in the future. Some roads will be used for the big fast cars and other roads will be needed for the slow and small ones. It's said that three such little cars fit in the space now needed for one car the usual size.Honesty is a long-lasting virtue of people and is regarded as the most important quality. People give admiration to those people who are honest, while hate those who often tell lies.Christian Louboutin Women Shoes 51 However, some people say that in market economy, honesty tends to be less important. But in my point of view, honesty will never be out of date no matter how the situation changes. Firstly, honesty is always the mainstream in our society and those people who are sincere are respected. On the contrast, the dishonest will be excluded by others. Christian Louboutin Women Shoes 50 Secondly, no matter in the daily life or in business, people would like to build relationships with the honest. Honesty is the basis of true friendship. In the business, those who make money at the cost of honesty certainly will pay the price in someday. Finally, honesty should become part of our personality that we should treat it as the most valuable fortune of ours. It may not brings you material benefit, but you spirit must be rich.In China, almost all students learn English, no matter they are pupils or undergraduates. Unkut Wool HatsSome people think that there is no need for Chinese to learn English, because after graduation, it is no use at all. I don't think so. English is the most widely used language in the world, and most business letters are written in English. With the deepening of reform and opening up, our Chinese and foreign exchanges increase greatly, so English must be the necessity. Besides, learning English well can help us better learn the advanced experience from foreign countries. Mniluka Wool HatsIt's beneficial for us to service our nation. In addition, learning English is a quite funny thing which enable us to explore a wider world.

In my point of view,Gucci Wallets 25I am inclined to favor the former though we should be careful when making friends online. To put it in a nutshell, it is wise to make friends online.As the history between Chinese and Japanese and the issue happened on Diaoyu Island recently,Gucci Wallets 24 some Chinese people appeal to boycott Japanese goods. Is it right to boycott Japanese products? Different people may have different opinions. I think it’s not necessary to resist Japanese goods. My reasons are as followsGucci Wallets 23.First of all, the boycott of Japanese commodity will do harm to the economic of our country. Any import business will promote the economic circulation of China, which means make money for China. According to the procedure of Chinese economy, we find that the import and export business have made so many contribution to our economic. Meawhile, if we resist Japanese goods, they will return blow for blow. As a result, our export will be influenced.Secondly, Christian Louboutin Women Shoes 79due to the globalization of trade, some ordinary people have partiality for Japanese products. If those goods are banned, their life will have dramaticly change. They will feel very unconvenient or even afraid to choose brands in the later life. Christian Louboutin Women Shoes 78In some extent, this samll decision will destroy some people’s life.The last but least is that we should love our country in proper way.Christian Louboutin Women Shoes 77 Against to boycott the Japanese goods does means betray our country. We should support our governments to deal with the problem in their way, instead of doing such childlish thing.In general, look before you leap. The boycott of Japanese products is not a wise decision for our Chinese.We all say that students are the future of our country, but there are much more reports about campus safety than before, such as killing, injury or maltreat and so on. Therefore, campus security has aroused many concerns. Why are there so many campus injuries? I think the following reasons may explain it. Firstly, some people are treated unfairly so that we take revenge on society and the place they first choose is campus, especially elementary school or middle school. Toronto Blue Jays HatsThe students are the vulnerable group that they can’t protect themselves. Secondly, some parents make trouble in campus because of some fees issues. They may hurt students if they are agitated. Finally, teachers may be a hidden danger of campus security. Some of teachers can not take good care of students because of irresponsibility. They do not fully fulfill their duties. Even worse, a very few teachers maltreat students because of personal reasons. Philadelphia Phillies HatsIt shocks the whole society and worries many parents. From discussed above, we should pay much more attention to campus security to prevent students from danger.
