Two squads to represent Auckland

Get ready for an epic showdown at the Battle of the Manukau!

Event: 1-5 Year Auckland vs Counties Manukau
Date: Sunday 18 February 2024
Venue: Papatoetoe Hunters Corner 
Time: 9:00 am

This fixture is not just any match—it’s a showcase of the talent and determination of 1-5 Year players! We’ve selected two teams, each comprising eight exceptional players. But here’s the twist: our Blue Team is our top team, excluding the fifth-year players. On the other hand, our White Team boasts the experience of our fifth-year players along with the sheer potential of our development bowlers.

What makes this event special is the opportunity it presents for our budding talents. Our 1-5 development players have been grinding hard alongside our seasoned 1-5 Reps, honing their skills and gearing up for this challenge. It’s a chance for them to step up to the plate and prove their mettle against some of the best from Counties Manukau.

1-5 Year Head Selector, Peter Blucher said “Congratulations and well done to all the players named in our squads. I have full faith in our White Team’s ability to shine, with their mix of experience and emerging talent. I’m confident that our development players will make their mark and stake their claim for a spot in our future 1-5 Rep teams.”

So mark your calendars and join us as we witness the clash of these new titans at the Battle of the Manukau! Let’s show our full support for both teams as they battle it out on the green.
