ASB Youth League Grand Finalists Auckland City FC and Nelson Marlborough Falcons had contrasting preparations over the weekend in the 10th and final round of the competition.
AUCKLAND - Minor premiers Auckland City will play Team Wellington in the Grand Final of the ASB Premiership this Sunday on the crest of a wave of good form.
WELLINGTON - Team Wellington have become the first team to qualify – at least officially – for this season’s ASB Premiership grand final with a hard-fought 1-0 win at home over Hawke’s Bay United this afternoon.
Team Wellington defender Shaun Timmins has followed in the footsteps of former team mate Hamish Watson in putting pen to paper with the capital's other major club, the fully-professional Wellington Phoenix.
Complacency will definitely be off the agenda for the home team when Auckland City take on crosstown rivals Waitakere United in the second leg of the ASB Premiership semi-finals at Kiwitea Street on Sunday.
