Kaitaia's junior football season ended in spectacular fashion at the weekend with some great games played in the age group finals.
All games played on Saturday were high quality, showing all the training and learning done during the year. All finalists did themselves proud and there were some nail-biting encounters.
Of special note, side-line support was the best seen this season. Please pass that on to your team supporters, they did an amazing job.
It was a fantastic day at Taipa on Saturday for the finals. All teams played really well and there were many games that went to the wire.
Two games went into extra time to determine the winner - the Under 8s Cup final between Paparore Pukekos and Pompallier/KPS Rebels and the U11s Cup final between Eastern Eagles and Eastern Sharks.
Organising committee members were happy about the quality of the games on show and the fantastic sideline support given on the day. It was a great day to end the season with.
The Kaitaia United Football Club prizegiving is scheduled for Saturday, October 30, and will be held at the Kaitaia Primary School Hall if the region is in alert level 1. If still in alert level 2, trophies, medals and certificates will be sent out to individual clubs so they can hold a smaller version of prize giving for their teams.
