Gone too soon

Alex Isik (1974-2020)

With Deepest Sympathy we acknowledge the passing of one of our own – Greenhithe City striker Alex Isik “Gone too Soon”. The following is reproduced with kind permission from his team mate Lee Philo,

“It is with such sadness that we mourn the loss of a great friend, team-mate, husband and father of two, Alex Isik (46 years). On the evening of Wednesday 16th December 2020, shortly after returning home from a social game of football at Wainoni Park, Greenhithe, Alex suffered a massive heart attack and died.

Alex inspired, motivated and always played to win. His generous financial support of the team was legendary. In 2016, after the first game of the season, and a couple of beers… Alex boisterously floated the idea that if we won the league that year he would pay for the teams’ airfares to Fiji. With that incentive we went on to be unbeaten, Alex winning the Golden Boot, and those that were able ended up at a resort in Fiji!

Alex was passionate about football. A great team player, skilled, with the ability to seemingly pull goals out of the hat at times. In fact, he was due to be awarded the team trophy for 2020 Goal of the Season for an absolute stunner scored at Starling Park, Oratia. Alex was a larger than life character. His love for life was evident in everything he did. His caring, warm, friendly and easy-going nature will be truly missed. In his business life Alex was driven, a calculated risk taker, incredibly successful, a passionate restaurateur and exceptional businessman, setting up 36 cafes and restaurants across the Auckland region in just over 12 years. Taken too early. We’ll miss you mate. “


ASFA 2020 Final’s Day Footie!

Only three more sleeps until the 2020 ASFA Finals Day, to be hosted once again at the home of Oratia United, Parrs Park. It’ll be the first ASFA finals day to have ever taken place in October and the forecast is looking good…

At 3pm, the Premiership’s HNK Auckland and Zamantix Rovers will go head-to-head for the 2020 Premier Cup on Parrs Park 1.

At 2.30pm, the 2020 Premier Champions AFC Bohemian Celtic 1 face the 2020 Championship Champions Albany Green Machine in the Premier Plate Final, to be played on the Artificial Turf (Parrs Park 6).

At 2.15pm, Kamarak (League 1) play EZ Eagles (League 2) for in the League Cup on Parrs Park 3.

At 2.00pm, Double Rum Greenhithe (League 1) play Ellerslie Tropics (League 2) in the League Plate on Parrs Park 4.

The Masters Cup Final will kick off at 12.15 on Parrs Park 3. The Korean Tigers will play either Ranui Swanson Masters or West Auckland United (depending upon the outcome of an appeal).

The Masters Plate between Greenhithe City and Zamantix Rovers Old Boys is set to kick-off at 12.00 on Parrs Park 4.

Team photo’s will be taken prior to every game and the season’s prize giving and feast will follow the conclusion of the Premier Cup Final.

Presentations being made to the cup and plate winners and the teams that finished top of their shortened league season (the destination of the League 1 trophy still TBC). Trophies will also be handed out to the manager of the year, the referee of the year, the top goal scorers for each division and the team voted to have won the fair play award.

The Clubhouse bar will be open, and food will be available throughout the day. No other food or alcohol is to be brought onto the premises.

All attendees will be required to sign in using the contact tracing app and anyone feeling unwell should stay at home. We may be at level 1, but we must still be extra cautious, considerate and thankful that we were able to get the fields to make this happen.


Dr’s Diagnosis, Semi-Finals Sunday

11 games played across 2 venues on 1 sunny sunday afternoon, resulted in 264 new photos on the ASFA Facebook page, 64 goals, 4 clean sheets, 2 appeals and 1 game ending as a draw at the end of the 90 minutes.

Both Semi-Finals of the Premier Plate ended up with the same 0-6 scoreline and the semi-finals of the Masters Plate finished 3-6 and 6-3.

The award for the biggest win of the day and the most goals in a game goes to West Auckland Utd, following their 10-0 win over Ranui Swanson Master in the Masters Cup. At the time of writing, however, this result is currently under investigation.

With Auckland now back at Alert Level 1, the ASFA will get to say goodbye to this stop-start-stop-start season with 6 finals being played on 4 fields at Parrs Park, the home of Oratia United. The bar will be open, and food will be available. More information to follow.


Dr’s Diagnosis – September 27th, 2020

After a COVID-19 enforced break of 7 long weeks (55 days), the ASFA was delighted to be able to offer 40 football teams the opportunity to play 90 minutes of football last weekend, with many teams finally getting the chance to play the week 2 fixture that was postponed back on Sunday 28th June due to wet weather (lightning nearly struck twice, with Auckland being hit by heavy rain showers only hours before these games were scheduled to kick-off)

15 league fixtures were played, resulting in 109 goals being scored. 9 of these fixtures were played at the home of Albany United FC (Rosedale Park 1, 2, 3 & 4).

5 fixtures featured 10 or more goals with the most (12) coming in the Master 1 game between Korean Tigers and West Auckland United (4-8).

The biggest win of the day award went to Albany Green Machine (for the second time this season) who celebrated finishing top of the Championship by beating FC Khukuri 10-1.

There were two clean sheets to celebrate, with Zamantix Force failing to score against Zamantix Rovers Return (who scored 7) and Waiheke Old Fullas unable to beat the Greenhithe City keeper in their 4-0 loss.

My match of the day is the 5-5 thriller played out between Gurkha and Kamarak in League 1.

3 teams were awarded the 3 points as a result of their opponents being unable or unprepared to field a team and 2 teams agree to settle for a draw and share 1 point each.

1 friendly fixture was organised (also at Rosedale Park), in which another 8 goals were scored. AUT FC 1 (Championship) scored 6 of them against Ellerslie Tropics (League 2).

Congratulations to everyone who participated in an ASFA fixture this year, regardless of how many fixtures you played, won or how many goals you scored/prevented. The six teams that finished top of their leagues will be crowned the 2020 champions at Finals Day on October 11th, but there will be no promotion or relegation.

The 6 teams to finish top of their leagues are: AFC Bohemian Celtics 1 (Premiership), Albany Green Machine (Championship), Zamantix Rovers Return (League 1), Exit Trials (League 2), West Auckland United (Masters 1) and Saigon United (Master 2). Of these 6 teams, 3 went undefeated (AGM, West AKL Utd and Saigon Utd) and 2 had a 100% win record (AGM & West AKL United). CHAMPIONS!

All our attention now shifts to the conclusion of our Cup and Plate competitions with 22 teams featuring in next weekend’s Semi-Final Sunday. 11 fixtures will be played on six fields, four of which will be at Rosedale Park (home of Albany United FC).

1 team (Ellerslie Tropics) will no doubt be looking for another friendly fixture, having being awarded free pass to the ASFA Finals Day on October 11 (their opponents are unable to field a team). Maybe a rematch against AUT FC?
