Wellington Phoenix in India – Phoenix vs Shillong

Gareth MorganWellington Phoenix

No rain today, just energy sapping humidity and a crowd sheltering under their sun umbrellas. Somewhere north of 15,000 witnessed the Phoenix play seven of our apprentices (Justin Gully is injured) and build on a clinical start by the senior ranks of the team.

Three goals up seemed comfortable but once the locals scored it was all on, the crowd went nuts and our young blokes by then all on the pitch, realised that heat and fan fervour would make it a hard final 20 minutes for them.

At 3-2, the crowd was palpitating – who says these folks aren’t keen on football, they’re crazy for it. But Brockie, Bertos, Lochhead, Smith, Totori and 6 apprentices kept coming to finish an exhausting day at the office 5-2. Man it feels fantastic to have this depth in the squad.
