PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN Beating the odds to win glory • By Fraser Walker-Pearce FIVE AND a half years ago Andy Tuckey heard updates from firefighter colleagues involved in search and rescue during the February 22, 2011, earthquake, from a fire station in West Sussex. Last week, the Ferrymead Bays player was awarded the Mainland Premier League’s Golden Boot award. It is his second award since arriving. His first was a golden boot in a social league. Tuckey, 28, was a firefighter in England for six and a half years before “taking a gamble” and leaving for Christchurch three years ago. He works as a travel agent in Riccarton, and was last week awarded the Golden Boot for netting 12 times in the season. He also received a trophy for being named as a finalist in the men’s striker of the year award, which instead went to Cashmere Technical’s Liam Oxley. Tuckey made the Charlton Athletic youth academy at age 11, and played as high as the Ryman Isthmian South League, a semi-professional league, for Crawley Town. This was his first season with Bays, and although it wasn’t perfect, Tuckey was glad to come away with silverware to show for it. •Turn to page 24 • By Annabelle Dick WIND AND kite surfers are concerned that freedom campers may get to use city council land in Ferrymead near Windsport Park. Groundswell Sports owner and Canterbury Windsports Association member Allan Taylor said it would severely disrupt the sport if campers were travelling through the reserve. Last week, Bay Harbour News revealed Ferrymead businessmen Julian Bell, of Pirates Ltd, and Jamie McGillviray were interested in installing camping facilities on city council land near the estuary. But Mr Taylor said putting in an area for campers nearby would tarnish the windsport reserve. “When you start putting commercial interests in areas like this, even though it might be a minor commercial interest, people want to make money and they start putting constraints on what the community can and can’t do in an area,” he said. The land Mr Bell and Mr McGillviray have eyed up is north-east of the windsurf area and the only current access way is through Windsport Park. “It would run through the car park and access up the kiting area at the back – that’s the only access and if that happens it will heavily impact on the area,” Mr Taylor said. Freedom camping was banned at Windsport Park and four other Christchurch sites in March. •Turn to page 4 Lyttelton & Ferrymead S uper NIC DEAL! uperVALUE, EVERY WEEK valid Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday only!
