Bid to

address

lack of

facilities

for youth

• By Noah Graham

WORK TO address a lack of

services, activities and facilities

for youth in Waltham and

Sydenham will start later this

year.

The Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board is waiting

on a report by city council

staff, which will be presented in

September, that will research into

what youth, particularly teenagers,

want for the area.

Community board deputy

chairman Jake McLellan said

although there were plenty of

facilities in the area such as ice

skating and rock climbing but

they tended to be aimed at a lower

age group.

“There is not the type of facilities

in the area that a teenager

would want to go to.”

Mr McLellan said there has

been a long-standing need for

programmes and services for

youth in the areas.

He said one way to find out

what youth want would be

through a youth community

board.

A GOOD initiative on page 1 today

– a bid to get facilities for youth in

Waltham and Sydenham.

Research is under way to find

out what teenagers want and the

findings will be presented to the

Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community

Board in September.

If I was to add my five cents worth

into the mix I’d say direct them to

a sports club in the area – rugby,

cricket, softball, league, netball,

whatever takes their fancy.

There’s nothing better to build

character and discipline than to play

in a team sport.

I hope the report council staff

are doing for the community board

includes that idea.

Speaking of sport, reporter Noah

Graham profiles jiu-jitsu expert Paul

Stokes on pages 6-7.

He’s a sixth dan black belt through

years of discipline and dedication.

Protection planned for cyclists

• By Noah Graham

FLEXIBLE POSTS will be

added along the edge of the

Grove Rd, Addington, cycleway

to prevent people driving onto

it.

City council planning and

delivery transport manager

Lynette Ellis said the posts will

be installed in the ‘next few

weeks’ to prevent people from

driving onto it and ensuring

user safety.

Manuka

Cottage manager

Cherylan

Davies (left)

was delighted to

hear city council

were installing

the posts after she was worried

cyclists could be injured.

She said it was only a matter

of time before someone was hurt

on the narrow road as, when

passing each other, cars would

often swerve into available gaps

and that would often be the

cycleway.

“Anything that makes it safer

for pedestrians and cyclists is a

good idea,” she said.

However, Mrs Davies said city

council needed to monitor the

road properly and make sure

people were following the road

rules down the street.

On one side of Grove Rd parking

was removed to install the

cycleway, which is part of the

Little River Link, one of the 13

major cycle routes which aim to

connect the city.

With less parking, a small

number of people have

started parking on the berms

and the cycleway during its

construction, Ms Ellis

said.

“Construction contractors

have reminded residents not to

do this, which has worked in

most cases.

“[City] council will use

enforcement measures if

necessary once the cycleway is

open.”

The cycleway is expected to be

completed in a few weeks.

In Brief

SIGNS PLEASE RESIDENTS

Somerfield residents are delighted

to see the new school speed zones

installed on Studholme and

Somerfield Sts. The 40km/h signs

were installed late last month.

Somerfield Residents Association

chairwoman Julie Tobbell said

she was pleased to see the signs up

making the area safer for children.

SPARKS RD CONSULTATION

Consultation on the Sparks Rd

footpath opened yesterday. City

council is proposing improvements

on 381 Sparks Rd, outside the old

Halswell Library, and the installation

of a zebra pedestrian crossing

over the left turning lane from

Halswell Rd onto Sparks Rd. The

consultation will close on May 29.

COFFEE CART AT QUARRY

A coffee cart has been granted a

spot at the Halswell Quarry, following

a city council idea to get

small businesses to set up in the

space. The city council asked for

expressions on interest in spring

last year and Coffee Vice won a

temporary lease to set up shop

near the Singleman’s House. The

decision to allow a vendor into the

park was made after plans to convert

the Singlemen’s House into a

cafe were turned down. The cart is

currently operating from Tuesday

Veterinary practice

OUR VISIT TO UC

DAVIS, CALIFORNIA

Steve, Isaac and myself recently spent time

at UC Davis, the #1 Veterinary school in the

world. For 2 years running it has received

this huge accolade and when you are

there you can see why. It operates and is

the size of a mini CHCH Public hospital.

They are a teaching hospital as well as

seeing referral patients and first opinion

clients. Their specialities include 24/7

emergency and critical care, cardiology,

neurology, ophthalmology,

oncology and surgery. They

were originally set up to

see 5500 patients per year,

last year they saw 50,000

patients. Everyone was so

friendly and helpful and

enthusiastic about being

part of this college. It had a

wonderful vibe... Isaac was

hooked.

Approximately 140 students

get accepted yearly in to

Davis, with around 10% being

male. It cost about US$45,000

for tuition( $64000 NZL)

and then there is living costs on top of

that. Vet students on average come out

owing US $135,000. These students have

spent the previous 4 years obtaining an

excellent undergraduate degree just to

get accepted, majoring in science and

maths. There are 30 colleges of Veterinary

Medicine in the US and each year about

3000 students get accepted. About 40%

of students who apply get accepted

somewhere. In your 3rd year you start to

branch off in your area of interest – either

companion animal, equine, mixed practice

or production animals.

After their 4 year degree at Davis, most

will apply for 1-2 year internship at another

Veterinary College to further their skills

in an area they are interested in. Davis

don’t offer internships. Our freshman

(first year) guide loves dentistry so her

plans are to become a specialist in this

field. After her internship, she then needs

to apply for a residency at one of the 30

colleges, which could be anything from

3-5 years more study!! These are hard to

come by, and you have to be the best of

the bunch, although a Vet degree from

UC Davis stands you in good steed. So to

be a specialist in your field in the US takes

between 13-15 years, and the debt these

students accrue is massive, a few get

scholarships, but most have to pay. I met a

vet in her 40’s who still has a student loan.

Steve spent 2 days tagging along with

ophthalmology specialists, residents and

students on rotation. First and second

year students get at least 2 weeks of

ophthalmology per year ( 27 years ago

when I studied at Massey, 1 day was

dedicated to “eyes”). He really enjoyed the

collegial discussions on cases, sussing out

all the latest equipment, chatting to the

students and doing rounds with them.

Steve came away pleased with his skills

and

expertise in

ophthalmology,

although a

few pieces of

equipment caught

his eye.

Isaac and I

thoroughly

enjoyed our 3 hour tour of the

entire faculty. Isaac loved the exotics

hospital where they house and treat the

reptiles, birds, rabbits, turtles etc. We

also visited their raptor centre, home to

rescued birds of prey that can no longer

see or fly. He also enjoyed watching elbow

arthroscopy on a Golden Retriever from a

viewing room. He could see them cutting

and sucking out torn cartilage from the

video screen. What amazed me was the

amount of people in theatre – 9 in all,

including the chief surgeon, 2 residents,

3 anesthetists and 4th year students.

There were so many people milling

around keenly observing. They do MRI

and CT here and even have a massive

MRI machine that can fit a horse into.

The most expensive patient to date was

a spoodle who underwent dialysis for 18

months, visiting the hospital twice weekly

to have all the toxins removed from her

blood. Her final account was US$140,000!

The most expensive piece of equipment

is a linear accelerator used for radiation

treatment for cancer patients costing a

little over 1 million. Apparently one of the

only surgical procedures NOT performed

here at Davis is renal transplants as when

attempted on cats over 10 years ago,

the survival rate was poor. A handful of

colleges perform renal transplants in cats

including the Pennsylvania and Georgia

College of Vet medicine.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time spent

at Davis and I thought how amazing,

fun and expensive it would be to be a

student now studying vet medicine at

UC Davis. The students we met were just

so absorbed, very happy and grateful to

be at this world class faculty. I came out

thinking I am so in the right profession.

trying to produce hydrogen from water in

an economic and sustainable way as part

of a global effort to eliminate problems

caused by fossil fuels.

Mr Paterson was awarded the Madame

in mathematical physics and is

researching towards his PhD at the University

of Exeter.

Mr Paterson’s research specialises on

modelling storm systems in the Pacific

in order to better understand their behaviour

and analysing how other planets’

atmospheres behave and comparing it to

Earth’s.

After he completed a degree in neuroscience

at the University of Otago,

Mr Hall-McMaster was offered the New

Zealand-Rutherford Foundation Trust

and William Georgetti Trust scholarships

to study his PhD at Oxford University.

Mr Hall-McMaster’s research centres

around his ambitions to understand the

underlying reasons that enable people to

work towards goals over a long period of

time.

He hopes from his research people will

be able to gain insight and be more successful

when chasing these goals.

Riverbanks earmarked for clean-up

• By Noah Graham

GROUPS ARE getting ready to

clean up riverbanks.

This Saturday, hundreds

of volunteers will don their

gumboots to pick up rubbish littering

Christchurch riverbanks

for the annual Mother of All

Clean Ups.

Volunteers will line the Avon-

Heathcote Estuary as well as the

Heathcote and Avon Rivers to

try and clean out waste that is

further polluting the rivers.

Avon-Heathcote

Estuary

Ihutai Trust

co-ordinator

Tanya Jenkins

said the cleanup,

held on the

Helene

Mautner

eve of Mother’s

Day every year,

was an opportunity

to give a gift

back to Mother Nature.

“We were thrilled to see such

an enormous turnout of caring

people last year.

“Close to 1300 members of

the public tidied 156km of river

bank and estuary edge,” she said.

More than 20 tonnes of

rubbish was collected last year

which ranged from plastic bags

to computers and even a sheep

carcass.

RUBBISH: During last year’s Mother of All Clean Ups more

than 1300 volunteers removed more than 20 tonnes of

rubbish from the Opawaho/Heathcote River. ​

“We are hoping that we collect

less this year as the aim of the

event is to raise awareness of the

issue and for individuals to take

responsibility for their careful

disposal of rubbish,” Mrs Jenkins

said.

Opawaho-Heathcote

River Network co-chairwoman

Helene Mautner said volunteers

would not need to get into the

water, they would just be cleaning

the banks.

“We have a saying: If your feet

get wet you’ve gone too far.”

Dr Mautner said it was a great

couple of hours to be involved

in.

The two-hour clean-up starts

at 10am, with volunteers urged

to register through ohr.co.nz,

however, people are welcome to

turn up on the day.

Last year more than 50

community groups joined the

clean-up.

Youth facilities

in focus

•From page 1

Mr McLellan said he did not

want to pre-empt the staff report

but said a social facility like the

Hornby Youth Hangout could be

a good idea.

“How could you be against the

idea?”

However, he said it was too early

to start making any real plans as

nothing was on the table yet.

Youthtown Christchurch southern

region area manager Amanda

Murray said there was a lack of

facilities for youth in the area and

it was always hard to get teenagers

to engage with community

groups.

She said sports clubs and church

groups sometimes worked but they

often added pressure teenagers did

not want to deal with.

Most of the time teenagers just

want a place to hang out and

socialise, she said.

Ms Murray said a facility like

the Hornby Youth Hangout

would be a good idea for the area.

However, she said if that was

a path the board was wanting to

go down, they would have to be

serious about it and be willing to

commit to the facility as well as

providing a youth worker.

There was less tagging and

random violence in the area since

the hangout in Hornby had been

implemented, Ms Murray said.

Sensei passes flair for

OUR PEOPLE: Paul Stokes has taught Jiu Jitsu in Bromley for

years at the Old Scout Hall. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Paul Stokes has been involved with

Bromley’s Furui Ryu jiu jitsu dojo since

the 1970s and has been a coach since

the mid-90s. Noah Graham spoke to

him about the evolution of the martial art

and how it has influenced him and his

students

How did you get into jiu

jitsu?

I was playing rugby for a

few years and my old man

knew a guy who was running

a judo club at Bryndwr

YMCA, except it wasn’t

judo, it was jiu jitsu. It was

something else to do besides

rugby. So I started there in

1979 and I’ve stuck at it ever

since then.

What was it about jiu jitsu

that you liked?

I think at the time, it was

very realistic. There was no

gloves, it was full contact.

There were knocked out

teeth and I liked how it was

realistic as a form of selfdefence.

The discipline was

great. Very, very disciplined.

The instructor at the time

would go around punch you

in the guts and kick you in

the guts. It used to be a blood

bath really to be honest when

I started.

We have light gloves these

days, you can’t send people

away with cut eyes and broken

noses too much. We used

to use real knives, too, for

knife defences. We were told

to throw and stab each other.

I just liked that part of it, you

know, it got the adrenaline

going. We would be doing

lapel breakouts or something

and the sensei would shout

out and the whole class

would go all out for one to

two minutes. It could be two

on one, or three on one – it

was a massive brawl. Then

you would stop and you

would go back to what you

were doing. You’d have your

guard ready because, if you

were doing something, the

other guy would smack you

in the face or kick you.

martial arts onto apprentices

The self-defence training

you learned – have you used it

outside of a dojo?

I used to do a bit of bouncing

and had to use it against knives

to machetes to general street

fighting. Only as self defence,

though. I never used to go out

looking for it. I bounced at the

Dux Deluxe and the Redwood.

Dux was a crazy place to bounce

at. There was a wide variety

of different people from your

yuppies to your gang members.

It could be quite a rough place

at times, really. Especially on a

Friday. I used to help teach the

bouncers as well.

Furui ryu is a specific form of

jiu jitsu, what’s different about

it compared to other forms of

jiu jitsu.

Jiu jitsu comes as a mixture of

judo, karate and aikido. Some

forms of jiu jitsu are more aikido,

some are more judo and some

are more karate. Most styles

these days are more aikido. Our

style has been more designed for

the street and to be as realistic

as possible without having too

many injuries. By being realistic,

we teach people proper self-defence

that can be used to protect

themselves. These days we’re not

too hard on the students. We still

do full contact in gradings, but

we wear a lot of gloves. We also

do free fighting occasionally.

How difficult is it to get a

black belt in jiu jitsu?

Very hard in our club. We

don’t give away grades. We

always make sure they do their

time. If you train twice a week

for the whole five and a half years

you’d get it, but most people are

more like six to eight years. I got

my black belt in 1985 after about

six years.

Can you tell me a bit about

your family?

Both of my parents are Scottish.

My mum’s passed away

but my dad’s still going. Dad

was a painter and I learnt my

trade from him as a painter. I

was brought up in the Redwood

area and stayed in Christchurch

all my life, a part from a ninemonth

trip to Australia.

What is coaching like?

There’s always people coming

up through the grades who you

can’t let down so you just carry

on. We have a kids class as well

as an adult class so you’ve just

got to be there for them. We create

a lot of discipline in our class

and respect for each other so

no one loses their cool and they

behave themselves outside of the

down to his

students.

dojo. They’re all aware they have

to be responsible. You get a sense

of accomplishment from watching

the kids improve to a black

belt. To watch their attitudes

change through discipline and

the pride of seeing them getting

their grade – it’s amazing. We’ve

had some kids who have had to

fail their grading and they cry,

and I just say, “look, you’re not

a loser, you’re only a loser if you

don’t come back”. They come

back and they get the grade, and

the smile on their face, it is just

amazing to see that.

How popular is jiu jitsu in

New Zealand?

It’s getting more and more

popular through cage fighting.

We were the first jiu jitsu club in

Christchurch and, since then,

clubs have been popping up

everywhere. However, today jiu

jitsu is associated with Brazilian

jiu jitsu, with cage fighting and

MMA. But our style is quite different

to that.

How did the club start?

It started in 1967 as Canterbury

unarmed combat school.

And then when John Bonniface

came down in 1968, he got graded

up to black belt to go to Japan

and trained under Sugawara

Geshu and came back with fuji

ryu jiu jitsu and came up with

our style in the early 1970s.

What do you like to do in

your spare time?

I used to do an hour weights

in the club everyday, but my

joints don’t allow me to do that

anymore. I’d go down and do a

bit of boat fishing every chance

I could get if I do have some free

time. Fishing is a bit more relaxing.

Try to knuckle around with

the guitar a bit when I can. I’ve

put that down for a while now.

It’s been sitting there too long

now. I learnt guitar about 20 to

30 years ago and I do need to get

back into it.

Soil bleeds into waterways

Cashmere

Stream Care

Group chairman

Ken Rouse talks

about the effect

the Port Hills

fires has had

on nearby rivers and what

needs to be done to save

them

THe Cashmere Stream,

downstream of Sutherlands

Rd, passes through rural land

for some 2km and arrives at

the confluence with Hoon Hay

Valley waterway in gin clear

condition.

But it is at this stage that the

Cashmere Stream begins its

death by 1000 cuts from the

inputs from tributaries on the

Port Hills.

There are three bogey tributaries

for Cashmere Stream with

large deposits of loess soil.

These are the Cashmere Valley,

Hoon Hay Valley and Worsleys

Valley waterways. In periods of

no rain, such as in summer, these

tributaries have little or no flow

but each of them bleed sediment

into the catchment during heavy

rain events.

The worst is the site of an active

commercial Adventure Park

and, unfortunately, this site is

severely affected with its vegetation

destroyed by the Port Hills

fires. These tributaries make

life difficult for the fresh water

inhabitants because when it

rains, they get a fresh smothering

SCORCHED:

The lack of

vegetation on

the Port Hills

means more

sediment is

running off

into nearby

waterways.

of sediment. A bit like living in a

smoggy Chinese city.

Unfortunately, the fires have

burned deep into all three of the

Port Hills valleys and vegetation

that was important against erosion

has been lost. To reduce the

sediment load from the hills, we

need a two-solution approach.

1. Construct a series of large

retention structures in each valley

that will slow floodwater and

assist settlement of the heavier

sediment. Within the structure,

create deep ponds that act as

sink holes for sediment. Create

them of sufficient size and depth

so as to be useful for helicopter

firefighting needs in the future.

These structures could accommodate

pastoral farming once

established.

2. Assist the private landowners

to the extent that they want

help in replanting the lost forest

areas and grass land. In the

short-term, establishing some

sort of cover on the bare land is

critical.

Note that in the short-term and

until permanent soil stabilisation

is achieved on the critical areas of

the Port Hills, every effort must

be made to keep soil in place.

There are eco-friendly soil stabilisers

that should be applied to

sites which remain without cover

as a matter of urgency.

McDonald’s has applied

for land and resource

consent on a plot on

Ferry Rd with the aim

of building a fast food

restaurant there

You said:

Amanda White – Oh,

great idea . . . put another

fast food ‘restaurant’ in a low

socio-economic area. You’d

never see one in Cashmere/

Fendalton.

Jemma Martin – I don’t

think it’s necessary, with

two McDonald’s, a Burger

King, KFC and Subway,

all at Eastgate mall just a

few kilometres away. They

should’ve gotten something to

reflect the area.

Vivienne Murchison –

God. Just when there was a

cool village-type vibe starting

to happen there. There goes the

neighbourhood.

Stella Twentyman –

There is a Burger King, a

KFC and two McDonald’s in

Linwood . . . Go there.

Amanda Clarke – Perfect.

People can drive through and

get their McDonald’s then

park up at Woolston Park to

eat it and dump their

rubbish.

Sophia Young – There’s

one not far at Eastgate. They

don’t really need it.

Lorraine Isaacs – Hope

people go to New World and

buy real food instead.

Hayden Allan – As

bad as it is, if you want an

area to thrive put a

McDonald’s there. If they put a

KFC or a McDonald’s in New

Brighton, I’m sure it will take

off.

Rohan Bekker – Fast food

equals rubbish on the street

and in the river. Great.

Ashley Rossouw – There

is already a McDonald’s at

Eastgate mall which is a twominute

drive away. Not really

needed in my opinion.

Hillmorton High students

bang on the bongo drums

Hillmorton High School pupils took part in a rhythm workshop last week,

which had them using African-style hand drums.

The pupils were visited by Rhythm Interactive, which performed a

workshop with year 7 and 8 music and international pupils. The drums were

handed out to the pupils who were encouraged to join in with the show.

Deputy principal Eleanor Sim said the workshop themes were ‘playing

together as one’ and ‘actions speak louder than words’.

As part of the ‘actions speak louder than words’ theme, the school show

was performed without a single word being spoken.

Denture technicians keep abreast of industry

developments

As registered members of the New

Zealand Dental Council, Ryan Carlton

and his fellow technicians at Dentures

Plus in Innes Road are required to

undertake verified training at various

courses every year, to upskill and keep

abreast of new developments in the

industry.

“For example, our technicians Thomas

Gu and Nicole Yee will be attending a

two-day course later this year on the

fitting of first-time dentures,” Ryan says.

In addition, Nicole has recently spent

four weeks in India as part of a course

she is undertaking on maxilo facial work,

which deals with artificial eyes, ears and

noses.

“This is a service we may potentially

offer in the future,” Ryan says.

Ryan himself has recently returned

from the International Dental Show,

which was held in Cologne, Germany.

“It’s the largest trade show in the world

for the industry, with manufacturers

and suppliers from all over the world

showcasing their products. There were

over 2300 stands – it was really eyeopening.”

Ryan says he was particularly interested

in how digital technology is being

incorporated into dentistry, for example

3D printing being used at different stages

of denture manufacture such as the crown

and bridge.

“It’s still in the very early stages, and it

needs more development, but that’s where

it’s heading,” Ryan says.

He believes that in the future, people

that make and fit dentures will be seen

as architects rather than technicians,

with patients being able to download the

pattern for their dentures the architect

has designed on computer, and print

them on a 3D machine.

In the meantime, he emphasises the

importance of keeping dentures clean.

Dentures Plus offers a full range of

products for denture cleaning including

denture cleaners, brushes and denture

baths for soaking the dentures.

Ryan particularly recommends Caldent

denture cleaner, as it is non-abrasive and

effectively removes stains, calculus and

plaque.

“It works wonders,” he says. “Years of

stains and plaque can be removed with

this product.”

It can be purchased through

the Dentures Plus website, www.

denturesplus.co.nz, for delivery anywhere

in Christchurch and throughout the

country.

Dentures Plus, 396 Innes Road, is

open Monday to Thursday 8am-5pm

and Friday 8am-2pm. To make an

appointment for a consultation on

denture fitting or repair, phone

385 5517.

Dentures Plus also

denture cleaning.

Halswell squads head to

large youth tournament

• By Andrew King

FOR THE first time, Halswell

United will send teams to

compete in an Australian football

tournament in Canberra.

An under-14 girls side and

under-13 boys team will head to

the Kanga Cup in July.

It is the largest international

youth football tournament in the

Southern Hemisphere, with more

than 375 teams from a number of

different countries competing.

Halswell United general

manager Sam Bunn said it was all

about player development and it

was the teams that wanted to go.

Bunn said the girls team was

looking to win in their maiden

outing, while the boys would be

competitive.

SPORTS

WARM-UP: Halswell United’s under-13 boys and under-14

girls Kanga Cup sides played out a 1-1 draw against each other

on Sunday as part of their preparation for July’s Kanga Cup

competition in Canberra.

“It is all about experience, and

this will provide quite a bit of

that,” she said.

The cup competition started

in 1991 in Sydney with about 35

teams competing before it was

moved to its current home in

Canberra in 1993.

Previous participating teams

have hailed from Australia, United

States, England, Denmark, Italy,

Russia, Georgia, South Africa,

South Korea, Chinese Taipei,

Malaysia, Philippines, India,

Indonesia, East Timor, Fiji and

New Zealand.

•Halswell United is still

looking for sponsorship of

its two Kanga Cup squads.

South African leads Cashmere first XI

• By Andrew King

SOUTH AFRICAN Lyle

Matthysen thought he was

destined to be a rugby player

when he moved to New Zealand

12 years ago, but a chance

encounter with the Cashmere

Wanders led to a love of

football.

Matthysen, 18, is now captain

of the Cashmere High first XI

and a regular starter in the

midfield for the Cashmere

Technical Mainland Premier

League side.

Born in Cape Town, in the

heart of Stormers country,

Matthysen left when he was sixyears-old.

A friend took him to

a training when he was younger

and he just fell in love with the

beautiful game.

He has been playing top grade

football for the past four years,

but still remembers one of his

first blunders after making the

Cashmere Tech side.

“I was through on the keeper

and totally tripped over the ball

Cashmere face St Andrew’s in second round

• By Andrew King

CASHMERE HIGH will play

St Andrew’s tomorrow after

recording a solid 3-1 win over

Christchurch Boys’ High in the

opening round of the Connetics

schools premier first XI

competition at the Christchurch

Football Centre.

Cashmere had a number of

players on debut in its squad,

with coach Tom Wilkinson

saying Luke Tolan playing in

central midfield had a brilliant

start earning him man of the

match.

“He controlled the game very

well last night and was a rock in

front of the defence,” Wilkinson

in front a quite a few people,”

he said.

It did not deter him and now

he sees his name in the starting

11 quite often.

“It is something I really want

to pursue as a career,” he said.

He said the natural progression

for most Kiwis is through

an American college on a scholarship,

a dream he is very keen

to chase.

“Ryan Nelson played for

Cashmere and is a huge role

model to me,” he said.

He has had the privilege

of playing with former Wellington

Phoenix and All White

defender Ben Sigmund and

Canterbury United FC and

All White mid-fielder Aaron

Clapham.

“Clapham is still in the

always giving us plenty of good

advice,” he said.

said.

“The game was fast-paced in

the first half with both sides

battling well.”

Wilkinson said the team will

be looking to work on consistency

as they look ahead to

the game against St Andrew’s

tomorrow.

The last time Cashmere

played St Andrew’s, the match

ended in a 2-2 draw.

Both teams are undefeated

going into the second round

with St Andrew’s beating Burnside

4-2.

“They will be a tough opposition

and we are relishing the

challenge,” Wilkinson said.

The game starts at 5.45pm.

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

New and quality used tyres

for most makes & models

If you need new tyres for your vehicle,

JCM Direct is the place to go.

This family-run, independent tyre

business in Birmingham Drive specialises

in new and quality second-hand tyres.

The business is owned by husband and

wife Athol and Julie Hurst, with Julie being

the one who runs the day-to-day operation

and fits the tyres for customers, which is

unusual in the male-dominated industry,

she says.

They stock a large selection of new tyres

from a wide range of suppliers to suit your

wheelbarrow, car, van, 4wd or trailer.

“There are very few brands we can’t do,”

Julie says.

“We also have an excellent selection of

quality second-hand 4WD tyres.

Other services JCM Direct offers include

puncture repairs, supply and fitting of

new and second-hand alloy wheels, wheel

alignments, replacement factory steel

rims, rim repairs and lights.

“We also specialise in old rims, from the

1930s to the 1970s, which people purchase

for caravans and old trailers. The modern

rims won’t fit those,” Julie says.

“JCM Direct also do a lot of matching

rims and tyres, so customers don’t have to

buy a complete new set if only one needs

replacing.”

We can create packages to accommodate

all budgets, with finance available via Q

Card or Farmers Card.

JCM Direct is now in a new location,

on the corner of Birmingham Drive and

Hands Road. Their former premises were

further along Hands Road.

Opening hours are Monday to Friday

9.30am-5pm and Saturday 9.30am-1pm.
