Re-signing of Daniel Eisenhut

Te Atatu would like to announce the re signing of Daniel Eisenhut for the 2019 season. Joining Te Atatu late 2017 for the 2018 season, Daniel has introduced professional systems of support and development for both the First and Reserve team squads,as well as introducing some of our 16th grade players to reserve and first team football. Not to mention a well coordinated coaching group and support for the club through events, Danny has proven he is the right person for the club moving forward and has the complete backing from the club . A tough season so far but we look forward to the continuing development to make for an exciting 2019.

Weekend results for Senior Teams

Some mixed results from the senior teams over the weekend:

Firsts and reserves both went down to Bucklands Beach at home. The firsts going conceding a late goal directly from a corner to lose 2-1 and the reserves conceding a dodgy penalty late on to lose 3-2

The Ladies 1st Div drew 1-1 with Glenfield to put them middle of the table with plenty still to play for. The 3rd div managed to score a late late winner to beat Albany 1-0 in a top of the table clash which puts Te Atatu 3 points clear with 2 games in hand.

The over 35’s Te Atatu Footy Westerlies drew their cup game but went on to win 2-0 on penalties to put them into the masters cup final. The over 35’s Te Atatu Blue drew 3-3 in an action packed game.

The seasons coming to a close, so if you can get out and support the club as each team pushes for good end to the season.

Mens Reserves season so far

With the final few games fast approaching, the reserves sit in 9th place after a tumultuous season of inconsistencies. Between our first team and reserves, at times the squad has lacked up to 10 – 11 players through illness and injury. While that’s far from an excuse, it might help to shed some light on the ups and downs that the reserve side have shared with top side.

Our season started in a way that has seemed painfully familiar throughout this year with a narrow 2 – 1 defeat to top side Takapuna. Strong in patches throughout, but not quite enough of an edge to take the points from the strongest side in the league. With a strong hope of 3 points in the next fixture (after seeing ngongotaha had lost emphatically to cambridge during our opening round), we travelled down to rotorua on the long weekend. A 6 hour bus trip saw the reserves postponed, but the lads all had a fantastic time as we watched our top side take home a 3 – 2 victory.
The following week saw us unfortunately lose out narrowly again, this time to Claudelands in our first home game of the season. A pair of gifted goals and a great finish from the away side found us down 3 – 1 after taking an early lead. A late fightback saw us batter their goal and get back to 3 – 2 but that’s how it stayed as we slumped to a second close defeat.
Finally, the next round saw us take 3 points – and convincingly too. Possibly still one of the best team performances of the year saw us fighting back from an early goal to put the first points on the board in a 3 – 1 win. A favorite highlight from that game has to be Carlisle hitting the crossbar with an acrobatic effort which he still likes to remind us of. Still time in the season for one to come off!
Following that unfortunately was the signs of our struggle to string results together. Up against bottom side at the time Onehunga Mangere, the lads slacked off big time after taking a 1 – 0 early lead against a dogged and determined opposition. Two freak goals had our heads dropped and the tails of the underdogs up, and thats how it stayed. A disappointing defeat after such a great performance the previous week was a hard one for all of us to take.
The disappointment continued the following week with a scrappy 1 – 1 draw against Metro, a side we perhaps took too lightly after a very strong high scoring pre season win. Thankfully followed a 4 – 0 thumping of top side at the time Bucklands Beach. After some strong words from coach Aaron Brightmore and a clear message to stick to the plan, the team showed up in emphatic fashion with four goals in the second half giving us our biggest win of the season.
We followed that result up with a 2 – 0 defeat of high flying Franklin, and suddenly things were looking good for the second team. The next week was our second of four bus trips as a squad, and it was not a good one for the squad. Reserves were eager to continue our fine form against a very strong cambridge side, but in all honesty we never got off the bus. Smashed 4 – 0 with a single shot on target in 90 minutes, and the disappointment returned.
Thankful to be back home the following week against Northland, the team was in good spirits in the lead up to the game. Windy and wet weather made it hard for both teams to play, but northland struck first and built a strong 3 – 0 lead. A late goal saw us pull one back, but too little too late and another tough result saw us slump back near the bottom of the table.
The second round began with the reverse of our opening fixture, welcoming Takapuna to Neil Ave. We knew we were in for a tough game, and defended well in the opening stages thanks to great organisation and team work. A nasty injury which saw Ben Pauley off to hospital after being knocked unconscious in a freak accident really rocked the team, and we quickly conceded 3 stunning goals before half time. Takapuna continued the rout and scored two more before a late goal for us gave us a small positive to take away. Tough start to the second round.
We finally then had the opportunity to play Ngongotaha after our opening fixture was postponed, and the away side were eager to notch their first points of the season. A hard fought and end to end game resulted in a 2 – 1 win from behind for us and we were back to winning ways! We backed that up the following week with another emphatic 3 – 0 win over Claudelands, much to the relief of the coach after the manner of our defeat in the reverse fixture. A memorable win for the first team topped off a great day for the squad and a very merry bus trip home.
Papakura came to Neil ave with a much changed reserve side after first team coach Leo Berlim rang the changes for the first team in a bid to get off the foot of the table. It worked massively for both sides as Papakura took home the 6 points with a 5 – 2 win for the reserves and a nail-biting 4 – 3 win over the first team.
Over to Mangere mountain and determined to return to winning ways, a fired up reserve side smashed in 3 goals in the opening 25 minutes to build a quick lead. OM stuck to their task as they had in the previous game, and made the boys work very hard to take home 3 points in a 3 – 2 win. Our most recent game was one we were looking forward to with Albany being the only side we had yet to play after our home game was called off in heavy rain. A strong start from Albany saw us barely touch the ball before they finished off a long sequence of passing with a top corner bullet. A short time later and we were down to 10 after the referee issued a second yellow to one of our players. The boys fought hard, but Albany held on and pinched a late goal to take a 2 – 0 win.
Not too many fixtures left of an up and down season, but no doubt everyone at the club will be fighting hard to pick up as many points as possible and stay in the Lotto NRFL for the 2019 season. Great coaching staff and a fantastic bunch of lads will give us a fighting chance, but its all up to us now…
