Cashmere High will welcome the break in the Connetics first XI football competition after suffering a few injuries in their 4-0 win over Papanui last week.

The competition stops over the school holidays and returns on July 26, but Cashmere will relish the opportunity to rest their players, especially with the boys Lotto premier football tournament looming. It will be played in Napier from September 4-8.

Centre attacking midfielders Eddie Wilkinson and Max Chrietien, along with right midfielder Declan Tyndall, all suffered injuries in the Papanui game with coach Craig Squires saying it will test the depth of the squad.

“The plan is that they now have some time to recover over the holidays and reassess early next term. The boys are really keen to continue developing and have been very honest in their discussions around areas to improve,” he said.

When the competition resumes, Cashmere will take on Middleton at 5.45pm at the Christchurch Football Centre, which is home to all league games played this year.
