I believe Otago Utd have there first training session tonight and that there squad was announced last night.
 
Liam Little - Caversham
Colin Falvey - Mosgiel (previously Ireland)
Tim Horner - Caversham
Blair Scoullar - Dunedin Tech
Rhys Henderson - Caversham
Michael Smith - Caversham
Tristan Prattley - Dunedin Tech
Andy Coburn - Dunedin Tech
Seamus Ryder - Caversham
Morgan Day - Mosgiel
Regan Coldicott - Mosgiel
Robbie Deeley - Caversham
Barry Gardiner - Southland Spirit
Aaron Burgess -  Dunedin Tech
Sean Brand - Roslyn Wakari
Dave Dugdale - Caversham
Tom Jackson - Caversham
Tom Conner - Roslyn Wakari
Al Rickerby - Mosgiel
 
2-3 Imports to be added
 
Looks solid at the back with Little, Falvey, Horner, Scoullar etc and good up front with Burgess, Dugdale maybe Jackson, but a bit lightweight in midfield except for Coburn.
They will need some quality in midfield from their imports i reckon.
Overall not too bad, missing a few Tech and Cavy players like Mckenzie, Chisholm, Jasper, Overton, Wild that would have been nice but ok none the less.

a lot of young players involved who wont play huge role in the season. imports to add quality, no wheeler or little mike (mr glass) eisenhut i see. hope they do well but with only coburn in the midfield may struggle there. chisholm has finished uni and has got a job up in auks, wild will prob be cantbury again and mckenzie is heading up north to play i believe

if that is a correct squad (i'm not doubting you cliff, i just want ANYTHING official).

I would have liked to have seen  Eisenhut,wheller also ben keat and mike cunningham as well as john lang and ross mackenzie up front and off course chisholm at the back but that's not to shabby.
 
Imports: If we can get an out and out striker (15 goal a season) to combine with burgess and dugdale. (I've seen Jackson play he will get murdered at NZFC level). Also a quality CB would be nice.

Pretty much the squad that I've heard - minus one player however.

Eisenhut has moved to Australia - Wheeler is not interested this year - Keat due to not being good enough last year isn't involved - Cunningham is playing for a varsity in the states - Lang is simply not up to it - Chisholm is leaving to work in Auckland.

Jackson is a brilliant player - I haven't seen a young player quite as atheletic and talented as him in a while. He will be my pick of the best young rookies in the NZFC.

If you want a quality CB you have two to choose from - Horner returning from a 2 year break was class for Otago in 2005/06 and Falvey is also a good looking product as he showed in the latter stages of last season.

Falvey is a cheat.
 
In a recent SPL match he called quality AR Chris Boyd and F...ing cheat twcie over an offside decision that clearly wasn't offside (ie AR left his flag down goal scored)
 
And soccersouth only gave him a one week ban.
 
Despite that he's not event that good

I don't deny Jackson is a good player but i feel he isn't phyiscal enough to make at NZFC level.

I don't think any defense in the South Island was able to cope with him. He will go alright.

jackson isnt that good. could be in the future but you are dreaming by saying he will be one of the best rookies!!! he will barely get game time. tech defense looked after him just fine they beat cavy 2/3 games and in both games tech won jackson played and jackson was away when cavy won 5-2

Jackson was good at the front of a good cavey team. The times he looked poor were when he played tech in the chatham cup rd of 16 and in a league match vs Tech. If you put him in Nortern for example he would be quite poor.
 
I hope i'm proven wrong, i really do but i can't see it happening.

Otago fan - are you taking the piss?  How can you say Falvey is a cheat? What has he done to prove that..... calling an assistant ref isnt proof!

He is a bloody good defender and will do a good job this year for Otago in the SPL.  Next time you come out making these outrages claims - have something to back it up with i.e. bribes to the ref or something along those lines.

Otago are gona have a good backline there

Starting lineups?

Cambell Mr Soccer Parkin will dominate anyone he plays against.... FACT!

The times Jackson played poorly against Tech the whole Caversham team played poorly and there wasn't any quality ball getting to him. In saying that yes he has a way to go but that will come with time.

Alistair Rickerby isn't playing by the way.
