What’s in store for our teams this weekend

posted in: Men, News, Northern League, Women

Northern League football returns to John Kerkhof Park this weekend with the visit of Onehunga Mangere United, an Auckland club that’s approaching its centenary.

The visitors are coached by former All Whites Brian Turner and Dave Taylor and with the teams separated by a single league point, this match could prove vital in the end-of-season rankings.

Lotto NRFL second division

The men’s first team kick off against Onehunga Mangere United at 3pm.

Onehunga Mangere United have advised the Lotto NRFL that they are unable to field a team to play Cambridge in the scheduled reserves fixture, planned for 12.30pm. The Northern League administrators have ruled the match will count as a default 3-0 win to Cambridge.
