The launch of the Northern Hills Football Pathway was a great success according to organiser and Onslow College 1st XI Coach, Lance Goodwin. The initiative, set up between five local football clubs, aims to provide youngsters with the tools and opportunities to improve their football and provide a pathway to play at the highest level within their local community.
"It's taken us a while to get here but we're extremely excited about the future of football in the North Wellington area. We have a wealth of junior and senior football talent and we are now in a great position to retain that talent here and provide real opportunities to those that want to progress their football career," said Lance Goodwin.
Supporting the event was Packaworld head and local football enthusiast Pete Roberts who was busy showing off the latest inflatable goal technology.
"We're delighted to support the launch. It's a great initiative and now there's no reason for our better players to move clubs to seek so called better opportunties. As we've seen with the recent success of the North Wellington 1st Team, gaining promotion to Capital Premier division, our better players are staying within the community which can only be good for the area."
