North Shore United in promotion hunt
North Shore United’s quest for promotion in the Northern Regional Football League division one has had a major boost, with big wins in the last two weeks.
The side beat Ellerslie 3–0 last Saturday, following on from a 7–1 thrashing of Tauran- ga the week prior.
Shore has won its last four league games and is now second-equal on the table with Waiheke United, with Forrest Hill just one point behind.
Sam De St Croix continued his good form on Saturday, scoring two goals.
Shore has five games left to play, but sig- nificantly none are against Waiheke or top-of- the-table Melville, who are unbeaten in 2018.
Shore’s next home game is against Manurewa on 4 August.
While all remaining matches are important, the last match of the season against Forrest Hill is shaping up as an appropriate grand finale.
