During Queens Birthday weekend Ngati Porou East Coast Captain, Charlie Harrison, made his 100th appearance for the Union.
Charlie first put on the Sky Blue jersey in the year 2000, and joins Morgan Waitoa as the only two NPEC players to reach the 100 mark. “To play for NPEC it means a lot…not many people can say they’ve put on this jersey,” Charlie told a Marae television reporter after the match. “I’m not going to be around for ever… We’re there for a time, then we move on.”
