ROMANOS Row erupts in NZ squash 30 Carterton to host Chatham Cup By WALT DICKSON High flying: Wairarapa United striker Suele Soromon was at his spectacular best against Tawa at Howard Both Park on Sunday. He scored one of his side's three goals in the 3-0 win. Also scoring were Nathan Cooksley and Campbell Banks. Torn up: The Sports Bowl in Masterton was meant to be hosting the Chatham Cup quarterfinal in Masterton this weekend; however vandals put paid to that on Saturday. CONTINUED Page 31 Wairarapa United coach Phil Keinzley says he is following his heart, and not his head, in making the decision to keep Sunday's Chatham Cup quarterfinal in the district. Having drawn Auckland- based Waitakere City the stage had been set for the match to be played at the Sports Bowl in Masterton. But a rogue motorist put paid to that on Saturday night ripping up the turf leaving it unplayable. With the Queen Elizabeth Park Oval no longer available and Masterton Athletic whose home is Hullena Park, an unwilling partner this season, Keinzley says he was facing real pressure to shift the match to Wellington. Such is the significance of the match a number of clubs have been offering their home grounds as venues. But to take up one of them would be to give away a big advantage, that of home town support. So Howard Booth Park in Carterton will host arguably the most significant game of football to have ever been played in Wairarapa. The coveted Chatham Cup is football's ultimate prize in New Zealand, win on Sunday and Wairarapa United is just two games away from glory. I hope now that we get the sup- port to justify that decision,'' Keinzley says. When Wairarapa United hosted the Wellington Phoenix last year around 2000 people flocked to Hullena Park for the spectacle. In the scheme of things that [match] didn't count for anything whereas this means everything.'' Keinzley is not expecting an equivalent crowd but given the level of interest in Wairarapa United expects a strong turnout''. Howard Booth Park is far from perfect for this level'' of football with Keinzley copping plenty of grumbles from his own players when they were forced to play there last Sunday. But while it might not be to his players' liking it is sure to be even less agreeable with the city slickers'' who Kein- zley says are used to perfect pitches.
