Call us on 271 8055 or email classiﬁeds@times.co.nz Visit our website: www.times.co.nz Updated every issue By DANIEL SILVERTON NEIGHBOURING sports clubs and codes have agreed on how a multimillion-dollar ar- tifcial feld facility will be shared. A memorandum of under- standing for the use of upgraded grounds at William Green Domain, in Highland Park, was signed by Fencibles United and Bucklands Beach (BBAFC) football clubs and Eastern Chiefz Lacrosse club last Monday. The agreement is the fnal off- feld phase of a $3.6 million devel- opment the clubs, particularly Fencibles and BBAFC, have been crying out for after years of can- celled trainings and matches. William Green Domain is a home ground of Fencibles. The club approached the Howick Local Board for funding for artif- cial turf at the park, which along with other training pitch Howick Domain, is closed multiple times each winter and often for weeks at a time because of wet weather. With BBAFC’s felds at Rogers Park and Greenmount Reserve also heavily used, the board made moves to prioritise the project and have it shared between the clubs. “This project is signifcant for the clubs, because it’s a huge leap forward in giving their member- ships certainty for training capac- ity, in particular the younger members who have often missed out on both training and competi- tion due to wet, sodden felds over recent years,” says John Spiller, Howick Local Board’s parks port- folio leader. “The artifcial surface will pro- vide all-weather, all year round access and thus takes a lot of pres- sure off the grass felds, which will consequently be in far better con- dition for competition play.” The site will include one full- sized pitch and fve youth pitches plus warm-up areas, increased lighting and additional car parks. “We’re absolutely delighted,” says Wilson Hawes, Fencibles chairman. “With more than 2500 members between the clubs there’s a great demand for a facility such as this. “First and foremost, it’s a train- ing facility, and it’s primarily for the kids and what we call frst kicks.” BBAFC chairman Aaron Hart- ley says: “It’s fantastic. It’s been a huge effort to get there and quite a fllip to fnally sign-off on it.” The football clubs will share time on the turf based on their playing numbers, while Eastern Chiefz Lacrosse will have use of the facility in summer. Club teams will train on the pitches in afternoons and evenings on Monday to Thursday and have in-house matches on Saturday mornings. Auckland Football Federation will schedule competition matches on Saturday afternoons, with Fri- day night and Sunday games also a possibility. “We’re very conscious that it’s ratepayers’ money,” says Mr Hawes. “We don’t want people to be driving past and see it not being used. “We’re working on a process so it can be used by as many people as possible.” The public investment is the largest one-off sporting commit- ment made by the local board. “The decision to proceed was made after evaluating the sports clubs’ needs, the known number of benefciaries and the beneft to the wider community,” says Mr Spiller. “These considerations had to be balanced against the current climate of fscal prudence, but the board is very pleased it has been able to justify the expenditure.” Drainage work is under way for a prospective opening for the start of the 2013 season. Fields of dreams kick off MODERN PITCHES: East Auckland footballers, including juniors of Bucklands Beach, pictured, and Fencibles, will be able to train and play on dry surfaces next year once the artificial turf at William Green Domain is installed. Times photo Wayne Martin Main joins elite group SWIMMER Corey Main has joined a select group of student athletes to win the ASB College Sport sportsperson of the year in their feld three times. Main, of Macleans College, won his third boys’ swimming title at the awards dinner last Thursday at Ellerslie Convention Centre. Only a handful of pupils have won awards in each of their senior high school years, and even fewer in mainstream sports. Double Olympian Scott Talbot- Cameron is the only boys’ swimmer to complete the feat. Main is the national open short course 100-metre and 200m backstroke and 100m freestyle champion and qualifed for the world champs in the 200m back. Howick College maintained its hold over the girls’ lawn bowls title, with Siobhan Archer taking over the honours from former schoolmate Selina Goddard. Scott Ambrose, of Sancta Maria College, repeated his win in the boys’ cycling award. The national women’s open badminton champion, Pakuranga College’s Lilian Shih, was an obvious choice for the girls’ badminton prize. Saint Kentigern College pupils picked up fve titles from 12 nominations. The Pakuranga school can again lay claim to the boys’ rugby winner, with Broc Hooper succeeding Joe Edwards. Hooper’s accurate goalkicking and fullback skills helped St Kents to Auckland and national titles, and he was selected for the NZ Schools team. Interestingly, he was judged ahead of teammate TJ Faiane, who was named Sky Sport’s First XV player of the year. Francesca Wilkinson won the girls’ cricket award for St Kents, and Daniel Lowe the boys’ table tennis prize. New Zealand’s top-ranked female junior Paige Hourigan is the girls’ tennis victor, and Sam Ward, the national schools under-19 champion, won the multisport feld.
