Australian tourists take on northern U-10 and U-12 academy sides

Australian club Ormeau FC are touring New Zealand to play a series of games against teams representing the Ricki Herbert Football Academy.

The young players from the Gold Coast will play RHFA teams from Warkworth, Kamo, ACG Strathallan, Papatoetoe and Auckland’s North Shore.

The Australian touring party consists of an U-10 team and an U-12 side.

In their opening games, against RHFA’s North Shore talent centre, the tourists won the U-10 game but lost the U-12 match.

Next up was a trip further north where Ormeau’s U-12 team beat a side from Kamo and Warkworth, while the home side won the U-10 encounter.

In a double against two Papatoetoe sides at Kolmar Recreation, the RHFA U-10s won their game while the Ormeau U-12s won the game for older players.

The RHFA welcomes the Ormeau players to New Zealand and congratulates the parents and supporters who have travelled to follow the tour.
