A very happy U 12 soccer team returned from Balclutha winning the Sutherland Trophy.

Second Row: Terry Thomson, Warrwick Farrar, Rianan Henry.

These boys were mighty proud of themselves because for the first time in eight years the Sutherland Trophy has come to Southland, by winning all their three games in the round robin tournament in Balclutha. Runner up was Otago with four points and Eastern Southland and South Otago having one each.
Southland won their games against Otago, 1-0, and South Otago 3-0, and beat Eastern Southland 4-2.
Southland scored all their goals against Eastern Southland in the first half with scorers; Riana Henry, Scott Klenner, Blair Turnbull and Maru Ririnui all scoring one each.
Eastern was not giving up without a fight and threw everything they had at Southland by scoring one goal and netting a penalty from a hand ball.
Mike Jones, Manager said that Eastern made them work hard and the game was very evenly balanced and could have gone either way, but he said that Southland stuck together as a team and did not back down to pressure.
Mike went on to say that Southland was disadvantaged at the beginning of the season due to wet weather and grounds being saturated. He said it was good to see another province besides Otago win the trophy - as Southland had not won it since 1974.
