First team draw, Reserves Triumph at Metro

Eastern Suburbs’ top two teams began their respective seasons with credible results away at Metro, at Michael’s Avenue on Saturday.

Despite initially going a goal down, the 1st team fought back well to first equalise (through a Nic Robson penalty) and then go on to dominate the game and will probably count themselves unlucky not to have gone on to win.


The Reserves faired better on a scorching hot Auckland day, grinding out a 1-0 win thanks to a goal from young winger Ben Alan. Solidity at the back, coupled with a disciplined midfield meant the result was the least the Lilywhites deserved.

Next stop Madills, and hopefully a continuation of the unbeaten start to the season
