So far we have won the tournament in 2007 (men) Victoria, 2008 (men) Queensland, 2010 (men) NSW, 2013 (U14s) WA and 2013 (mens) Brisbane.
It is a very well run tournament that provides a great opportunity to rub shoulders with our Australian cousins, promote the opportunity for football ministry and create a platform to present Christ.
2014 was the biggest adventure we have undertaken. 5 teams attended the tournament from NZ out of a grand total of 37 teams all up.
Our best result saw the men lose the final on penalties after winning all previous 8 games.
Our Under 16 girls and boys also performed well taking out 3rd place in their tournaments.
A big thank you goes to me management and coaching team for helping in a huge undertaking.
