Tāmaki Makaurau will host both of the 2022 Chatham Cup semifinals this weekend and semi-finalist Eastern Suburbs AFC is stunned to have made it this far.
It’s the highest level knock-out football competition in the country, which showcases the top amateur football teams in Aotearoa.
Easterns Suburbs goalkeeper, Emmett Connolly of Te Whānau ā Apanui, says reaching this point in the competition means a lot.
