On The Way Up


The Gisborne City National League Association Football team finished the season very strongly, with a 1-0 win over League runner-up Mt Wellington. Credit must go to the new player-coach, Alan Vest, as when he arrived (a third of the way through the season) Gisborne City was among the bottom teams in the League. By the end of the season they had risen to fifth place, two points below third place and six points ahead of the next place-getter, Dunedin Suburbs. The teams is, from left, in front: Len Cudd, Les Todd, Danny Birnie, Alan Vest (player-coach), Dave Carrick, Billy Donaldson and Maurice Tillotson. At back: Stephen Wright, Bob Dunn, Fin Mac Donald, Iain Gillies, Ian Sim (captain), Jim Nicholls and Mick Locker.
