The only way is up

Tauranga City United in action earlier in the year against Melville United.

Tauranga City United only need to look as far as the 1980s song ‘The Only Way is Up’ by Yazz and the Plastic Population as the side sit at the bottom of their football league.

It’s been a hard baptism of fire for Tauranga City United as they struggle in their first season of the Northern Regional Football League.

Last weekend they crashed to a humiliating 5-2 defeat to middle-of-the-table East Coast Bays. But they need to look past the disappointment and lift for their home match against Western Springs at Links Ave this Sunday, August 7 at 3pm.

Western Springs is coming off a 2-2 draw to Onehunga Sports. And ironically, it’s Western Springs’ fourth draw in a row. So the visitors will be fancying their chances to tick the win box when they take on the Blues.

In the other matches in the round, Hamilton Wanderers host Glenfield Rovers, East Coast Bays will take on Bay Olympic at home, Onehunga Sports is on the road to Eastern Suburbs, Forrest Hill is at home versus Three Kings United and Central United will host Birkenhead United. Melville United has the bye.
