We are very proud as a club to announce that Clayton Lewis, who is an ex-Onslow Junior Football Club member, has just been named in the full All Whites Squad to play in Korea.
In addition to this fantastic news is that Clayton and Noah Billingsley have both been named in the NZ U20 Junior All Whites squad. They played Uzbekistan in early April 2015 and more recently in the FIFA U20 World Cup held in New Zealand.
Noah played for Onslow from Nursery Grade through to Grade 14.
This is a fantastic achievement by both players.
Congratulations to the following girls for selection in the NZ U17 Training camp held in July 2015. The purpose of the training camp is to build up towards qualifying for the 2016 FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup. This is an amazing experience for the girls and a great reward for all the hours of hard training.
