The 29-year-old made the move to Christchurch from Liverpool, England, in 2012 after being contacted by former Sumner coach Scott Robertson. Brought in as an international player while the club struggled for numbers after the 2011 earthquakes, Manley was originally only meant to spend six months here. However, he felt right at home at the club and after prolonging his stay, has now become the club’s first international to bring up 100 caps.

Organised by Friends of Redcliffs Park, the petition calls for urgent legislation enabling the school to reopen on its former Main Rd site. It follows Greater Christchurch Regeneration Minister Megan Woods’ announcement last month she would fast track changes to the city’s district plan enabling the school’s relocation to Redcliffs Park. Friends of Redcliffs Park spokesman Chris Doudney said he expected the petition would attract strong support. “Our experience is a lot of people have been very supportive of the idea of not taking Redcliffs Park. I think the majority of people in Redcliffs and Sumner think it’s a mistake; that the (Main Rd) school site is the best in the district and the school should go back there. •Turn to page 5 •Editor’s column, p2 •Your Local Views, p8
