Coughlan and Bouzouki share men’s Golden Boot award

posted in: News, Recognition

Cashmere Technical’s Garbhan Coughlan and Wellington Olympic’s Gianni Bouzoukis have shared this year’s Golden Boot for the Men’s National League.

Bouzoukis scored a double in Wellington Olympic’s Sunday win against Miramar Rangers, giving him nine for the season.

Coughlan went into his final game with nine goals and for a while it looked like he had added a tenth when a stoppage time goal against Christchurch United was credited to him. It was later ruled to have been scored by Lyle Matthysen.
