Kapi-Mana News - - SPORT - By KRIS DANDO

Porirua City Co-Op refuse to act their age.

The Masters foot­ball side were pro­moted to di­vi­sion 3 on their first at­tempt after only form­ing at the be­gin­ning of this sea­son.

The team, named for their lo­cal wa­ter­ing hole in Whitby, played their home games at Ad­ven­ture Park.

The open­ing game was a 9-0 win away to Pe­tone and they stayed top of the di­vi­sion through­out the sea­son.

The team’s top scorer was Lee Du Mau­rier, who net­ted 20 goals.

Player- man­ager Paul Rud­kin said their favourite win was likely the 1-0 away win at Brook­lyn North­ern, with the goal com­ing in the fi­nal mo­ments to Brian Scott.

‘‘I think our keys to suc­cess are prob­a­bly down to the fact we’re all good mates on and off the field, half the team are coaches, and we’re so old we’ve been around for­ever.’’

The Porirua City AFC club are hav­ing a fun day at Ad­ven­ture Park this Satur­day, from 10am.

Cheers!: Pro­mo­tion for the Porirua City Co-Op Masters team.
