11th Grade Otago Blue and Gold


The 11th grade Otago representative Blue and Gold football teams are competing in the annual South Island Junior Football Championship tournament at Saxton Fields in Nelson at the end of this month.
We are lucky to have a great pool of young talent in Dunedin and significant depth in the 11th grade, which leaves us in the enviable position of having two evenly matched teams, both with the potential to do very well in the tournament. The boys have all been training hard and developing well.
Both teams have been training two to three times a week since the football season finished and have played pre-championship games during Festival of Football tournaments held in Dunedin, Invercargill, Timaru and Alexandra.
We have 26 boys who are all talented players in their own right, and the aim of the Festival of Football tournaments is to allow them to gel into their new team unit.
It has been great to see how far they have come as a team and we are looking forward to seeing how far they can go.
After all the training and prechampionship games, the boys are all looking forward to getting to Nelson and competing to the best of their abilities.
