posted in: News

Fencibles United have a chance of making the finals of both the men’s and women’s sections at the national U-17 championship tournament in Auckland.

Not long after their women’s side clinched a semi-final berth, the Fencibles U-17 men’s team secured a last-four spot for their team in Sunday’s semi-finals at Seddon Fields.

Fencibles will play Eastern Suburbs in one semi-final, with Canterbury’s Nomads United set to play East Coast Bays in the other.

In the plate semi-finals, Waikato rivals Melville United and Hamilton Wanderers go head-to-head, while Bay Olympic meet Christchurch United.

Host club Western Springs are the only Auckland club to reach the last four in the bowl competition, with Northland, Wellington Phoenix and Otumoetai vying for places in the final.
