It took until the second half for the football to start flowing the Waiuku way but the game was probably over by then. Read more.....

The 5-0 scoreline is a testament to just how clinical the Waiuku performance was down at Huntly on Saturday afternoon. It becomes even more impressive when put in context... with the game only lasting 55 minutes before a mutual decision between referee and team captains brought the game to an early conclusion.

Well... all in all it was a good day out for those who were able to make it, with a lot of promising signs for all concerned. It was always going to be a hard ask to take 3 victories out of the day (given that we really only had two teams worth of players) so the day's results were fairly satisfying. Congratulations to the Men's Reserves and Women's Reserves who both (with a small amount of assistance from a few existing 1st team players) managed to topple their opposition in tough games.

Saturday Feb 16th saw the first trip a Waiuku team has taken down to Taupo in more than 10 years. While it was really about blowing out the summer cobwebs, we'd like to think a good time was had by all - despite the 7 hours driving in one day!

Well the new website has only just been launched recently, so you may be finding that a few of the pages don't yet have many (if any) articles published.

While we are getting things under way, we are keen to make things as easy as possible to get info up on the site. So if you have any interesting stories, or important comments to make relating to any of the website sections, feel free to email them to dale@waiukusoccer.com and we'll get them up on the web ASAP!

Once the 2008 season rolls around, there will likely be far too many stories for one person to be managing. So, by then most of you that wish to supply articles will be logging in to the site and uploading your articles directly - no middle man!
