Kicking about with the Wellington Phoenix and Nixy
Last week we had some of the Wellington Phoenix football team, and their mate Nixy, come into Queensgate to meet with all their wee (and not so wee) fans and to have a bit of a kick-about with a few lucky kids too.
Oliver Sail, Thomas Doyle and Roly Bonevacia kept the fans happy, signing shirts, having a chat with everyone and even giving away tickets to their first game to some lucky supporters.
There was plenty of support for the team as they head into the next season, with fans turning out in the distinct bright yellow and black team colours. One of their supporters, Monty the Monkey, was also there, making friends with Nixy the Phoenix and showing his support for the boys.
