Due to the latest announcement from NZF and Central Football the NCR Club Day for this weekend has been postponed. We will keep you updated.
Napier City Rovers will be holding their Annual Club Day on Saturday, 21 March.
Melville United, the Blues' opponents in last years' Chatham Cup Final, are travelling to the Bay to play Thirsty Whale Napier City Rovers in a pre-season friendly at Bluewater Stadium, kicking-off at 2.30 pm.
Before the main event, Thirsty Whale Premier Reserves and Paddy's Irish Bar will play in an intra-club preseason friendly at midday on the training pitches.
There will be a club BBQ after the main game. The day is a good opportunity to renew memberships and purchase season tickets before the Central League season kicks-off the following week.
In the evening we will be having our Annual Race Night. A chance to get together before the season starts, have fun and raise funds for the club! Doors open at 7 pm, first race at 7.30.
Last year was a great night, so don't miss out! Free entry on the night with nibbles provided.

For the third year-in-a-row Napier City Rovers is offering their First Kicks programme for free.
The club recently announced it will waive fees for all children aged between 4-6 years-old who are eligible to join their First Kicks programme due to kick-off in May.
Club Chairman Phil Doran, a known advocate of junior and youth player development, says the free initiative is aimed at engaging kids early in the sport while making it affordable and accessible to all.
“The purpose is to provide the opportunity for all kids to have their first experience of football in a fun, friendly, risk-free environment without the barriers of cost for families,” says Doran.
"The idea of First Kicks is for the kids to enjoy football and to develop a passion for the game that could be life-long. First Kicks is where they get their first taste of football, and investment at the grassroots level is essential to make sure that initial involvement is positive and fun.
“When looking at nurturing young players it is important that we provide the best environment and opportunities for them to thrive. Rovers have a fantastic set-up to support junior football and access to some of the best coaches in the area. The engagement level of the kids in the programme is always massive. They get involved and really enjoy themselves."
The decision to waive fees for this age group and make the programme more accessible is in line with one of the club's main priorities to help promote healthier communities.
“Football clubs are important vehicles for helping promote active communities, as well as keeping people socially connected across all age groups," says Doran.
"Napier City Rovers has been an iconic part of the local footballing community for a long time, and we are proactive in working with schools and other organisations to encourage participation in football.
“Fostering a positive culture and supporting community participation is high on our agenda. Making football affordable for juniors has always been a priority.
“Some families struggle to find disposable income for programmes such as these. Children could be missing out because people simply can't afford it. Hopefully, this initiative helps.
"There are also those families who have, two, three, or more children who can feel the pinch as the financial impact of raising their family grows. We want to help ease some of that load. It’s a small thing, but if it helps make a difference for some then it will be worth it.”
You can register to play First Kicks for by visiting the NCR website www.cityrovers.co.nz.
Children must be between 4-6 years old in 2020
