Glendowie’s rise from winless league season to grand final

College Sport Media:

They didn’t win a game in the Senior A1 competition last year but Auckland’s Glendowie College 1st XI Girls Football side are just one victory away from clinching the Auckland Provincial Championship (APC) Division Two title on Wednesday.

Playing in the College Sport Auckland Senior A1 Competition in 2017, the East Auckland based school were fortunate not to be relegated come the end of the season with just four draws to their name.

Despite this, it was evident the team had the ability to play the beautiful game with a seventh place finish during Winter Tournament Week providing some much needed respite.

Fast forward to 2018, and under a new coach in Steph Trowill, Glendowie is one win away from lifting a trophy, with the APC Division Two Final taking place next Wednesday against Marist College, who were unbeaten in the A1 this season.

Glendowie finished a respectable fifth in the A1 with five wins, two draws and three losses to their name, qualifying them for the APC Division Two.
