So the academy is still going then and The Phoenix are still financially supporting Lower Hutt?

Who'd they have playing?

I have their 1st XI looking something like...

Paulsen

Drake, Naicker, Mogg, Bark

Check, Hamilton

Old, Toomey

Van Hattum, Bidois

That's based on who played for their reserves on Saturday and on who I've heard has headed home or elsewhere. Couple of those ^ guys are meant to be US-bound in August too.

Don't think it's a shock the staff and many of the players are at Lower Hutt for Central League, but there's no indication the Wellington Phoenix Football Academy is coming out of hiatus any time soon. Perhaps if they get the Government funding they're after?

olympic have a pretty kick ass squad on paper. Especially in midfield where Tor has joined.

Mar very strong on paper too.

Haven’t seen West’s but you’d be pretty sure you could lock them in the top three with the other two.


I think Oly play Karori at home on Sat.

Yeah, JourneyFan is correct on the clubrooms as NW committed to 80% of sale proceeds (so if valuation correct then that's $170k cash and the remaining $680k donated to new build on Alex Moore) from the half share of existing clubroom with Softball. Ongoing legal action/$cost between the two parties on that certainly doesn't help (except for the lawyers of course). Also Companies Office filing interesting as it shows that NW were removed back in March 2020 but relisted after the late financials were returned. NW operating losses reported show a total $126k lost in four years ($105k loss in these past two). Building revaluation upwards has masked the underlying activities and losses, such as fundraising costs of $40k matched by fundraising revenue of just $3.7k!!, and the Members equity is now negative, -$8k (was +118k four years ago).The $30k loan is listed in current liabilities so that should mean repay within 12 months but might be able to rollover as the Working Capital as noted in early post is negative $80k. Wage subsidy is just a stopgap for cashflow situation to meet contract obligations. All together, not good. Despite being one of the largest Wellington clubs the people I spoke to say there is very little interest in the admin and running of the club as the President and Chairman have sat through the four years with their own people at the table there so seems to be just same old again, also have had no Treasurer for past two years and paying extra in outsourcing accounts and their admin along with these large coaching bills and affected income now for coaching and grants. The now CF chair was recently part of this mix too. Clubroom deal, yes is a priority as they will also be pressure from Alex Moore new build for the committed funding, and agree with earlier posts that NW operations need a review and revise particular with Covid issues for other organisations showing there is no immunity from financial collapse. Got to pay those bills!

Any thoughts on CL games today. Watched most of the Olympic/NCR game. NCR well worth the win.
