Fan Questions

What Brought you to Uni-Mount? A mutual friend brought me to the Unimount academy in 2021 where I trained with my age group team until I moved into the men's u23s and reserve team.

What do you like about the club? I enjoy the transparency and humbleness of the club compared to other clubs that I have trailed and played for. The coaches and staff all have the same clear idea of bringing the club back to what it used to be.

Whats your goals for the 2024 season? My goal for 2024 is to break into the first team and start as many games as possible for the reserves for the time that I am in New Zealand

What would you say to someone who might be interested in joining the club? I would say that this club is for the players and the fans we have the best facilities and turfs in Auckland and the coaching staff along with the principles of playing football in this club is one which I have not seen in any other club.
