CAPITAL SOCCER CLAIM INAUGURAL MANCHESTER UNITED CUP NZ
FINALS
Self confessed Manchester United fanatic and All Whites Head Coach Mick Waitt
saw his Capital Soccer U15 side win the very first final at the Manchester United
Premier Cup at North Harbour today.
Capital Soccer Director of Football Waitt and assistant Coach Andy Hedge will
take the silverware back to Wellington on behalf of a dominant Capital side that
defeated Mainland with ease in the final, despite going behind to an early goal.
If the players were concerned, they didn’t show it. Goals from Sam Blackburn,
skipper Michael Eager and tournament golden boot Thomas Kelly (2) soon had
their supporters celebrating. The news got better at the presentation, with Sam
Peters taking out the Player of The Tournament award.
Earlier in the day, Soccer2 secured third place with a penalty shootout win over
neighbours United Soccer 1. Neither side could find the net in normal or extra
time with Soccer2 holding their nerve to win the shootout 7-6.
Players from all Federations will now be waiting nervously for news of the New
Zealand Team to contest the South East Asia Regional final of the Manchester
United Premier Cup, with the winner of that tournament going on to the world
finals at Manchester United.
The team will be announced on Thursday 22nd April and will travel to Malaysia for
the tournament in late May.

NEW ZEALAND TEAM NAMED FOR MANCHESTER UNITED CUP
SOUTHEAST ASIA REGIONAL FINALS
New Zealand Soccer Director of Technical Development Ricki Herbert today
named 18 players to represent New Zealand at the Southeast Asia Regional
Finals in the Manchester United Premier Cup.
The team will travel to Kuala Lumpur in late May to take on the best in the
Southeast Asia region, with the winner progressing to the World Championship in
Manchester in late 2004.
Herbert says the players were selected after a detailed profiling process at the
recent MUPC NZ Finals. “All players attending the recent NZ Finals at North
Harbour Stadium were profiled by NZS Technical Staff and Federation Directors
of Football. That information, combined with our existing database gathered at
Regional National Academies and IPDP programmes is providing us as a
national body with a thorough and detailed knowledge of our players.”
The team is also notable for the inclusion of Rwanda born John Niyonsaba and
South Korean born Jason Choi, something Herbert says reflects the global
nature of the game. “Everyone knows football is the number one game in the
world and New Zealand is increasingly a multi-cultural society. This is no doubt a
contributing factor to our status as number one participation sport in New
Zealand. John and Jason are just two of the many very good young players, boys
and girls that are embracing the game on their arrival to New Zealand. Equally
they are now proud to call themselves New Zealanders and to represent their
new country in the sport they love.”
Whilst guarded about the team’s prospects, Herbert is pleased with the quality of
players named. “I believe we have a number of exciting players at this age group
but most importantly I look forward to providing them with invaluable international
experience so they can learn and develop as footballers and people. This
experience will stand them in good stead as they progress towards FIFA age
group tournaments and eventually All Whites selection in the years to come.
Anyone at the NZ Finals at North Harbour couldn’t but be excited about the future
of the game.”
The Malaysian tournament is the next step along the way to a possible visit to
Manchester United itself, venue for the World Finals later this year. Developed by
Nike in 1993, the MUPC is regarded as the unofficial ‘world championship’ for
U15 club sides with over 6,000 teams from 40 countries entering in 2004.
The tournament is a global initiative from Nike, with the NZS apparel partner
funding the NZ Finals tournament that saw all Federations play at North Harbour,
and the trip to Malaysia.
13 of the players will benefit from travelling to Italy in early May to represent New
Zealand at the Mario Vespignani International Football Tournament in
Civitavecchia, Italy.
