Heard there's some games over the next few weekends with Olympic, Stop Out, Karori & Miramar in a friendly round robin set-up for pre-season?

North Wellington have changed their colours and logo

Personally I think its a shame when clubs choose to ignore their history - The Maroon and sky blue that they used to play in came from 1954 when the club was founded as Johnson Villa by English immigrants from Birmingham who were Aston Villa fans. They merged with Onslow in 1972 to form North Wellington. Onslow Juniors stayed seperate so they could play in the Wellington Junior competition rather than the Mana one and there was always supposed to be an affiliate type relationship and despite many of the North Wellington players coming through the Onslow juniors, it's never been a great relationship

The new colours used by most other Johnsonville sporting codes

As for the logo I can't decide if its trying to be Western Suburbs or a hark back to the National Party in the 1980s!

100% National/Conservative party logo. The typography is not good.

Edging closer to Tasman United's colour scheme.

Never mind the ignoring of club history - bring back the North Wellington Fans Facebook page! Now that was entertainment.

Did someone get paid to come up with that or did one of the youth players do it for a year 9 graphics assignment?

so North Wellington have found themselves in hot water over another issue...

Magno Vieira in his role as NAGT Coach for the 16 Boys, using his position to pressure and influence kids to come and play for North Wellington in the winter. Emails, phone calls, offers of money to help out. All unsolicited, all turned down.

The ethics of approaching underage kids are undoubtedly in question here. Calcott calling the shots behind the scenes and Magno the fall guy?

CF's response? A wet bus ticket.

Clubs are mandated through TDP to make their players available for selection for this. Perhaps unaffiliated coaches are the answer?

Inept and corrupt leadership will only further embolden such behaviour. A disgrace.

At least he's picking players from other clubs.

In my day the coach just picked all his own players from his own club and snubbed everyone else.

Picking players with the intention of influencing them to move to his club? I know which one I would prefer.

As a player... it would be getting picked.

Also, as a player I would follow the coach in a heart beat. A coach who believes in your is more important than anything.

For the record I don't think this is acceptable!

As a player it would be getting picked on talent

The talent which Magno decided could benefit his club. These are 15/16 year old kids we are talking about. Many of whom were upset and unsure as to what to do. 

CF failed in their duty of care to these boys.

Players deciding to follow a coach they had a great rapport with is a markedly different situation. 

When a coach undertakes an unsolicited approach, where it is unwelcome from the players perspective, is a concern.

What’s the rules and repercussions in the contract?

Making them available and the players wanting to do it are two very different things.

I'd say NAGT is completely irrelevant to those two sets of players.
