The Hurley Shield was formerly the Canterbury FA's 1st Division Championship. Some years after the Southern League was formed the Hurley Shield became a pre-season tournament. The Hurley Shield was reinstated as the trophy for the Canterbury Premier League winners in 1999 and 2000. In 2007, the Shield became a challenge trophy -a similar format to rugby's Ranfurly Shield.

Benefits of playing football

No wonder so many doctors recommend having regular physical activity. Playing football – or other sports – is scientifically proved to provide countless benefits to people. Not only that their health state is improved and the risk of suffering from health problems is diminished, but team sports are also good for self-esteem and confidence as well. Join a football club, play this amazing sport with other players and maintain your overall health in an entertaining way!

Hit and score

When you play football on a regular basis, numerous positive things happen in your body. Apart from the fact that you boost blood flow and enhance your cardiovascular health, you also increase your energy levels, fortify immunity and increase endurance. You can achieve some of these effects by just taking OxyHives, this popular treatment for immunity and eliminating hives, but by playing football with other players you will interact with people that share your hobbies and interests and you will also enhance your mood and wellbeing.

Play football with Coastal Spirit FC and you will not get bored. You will bond new friendships with these nice people, play football on your free time and even turn your passion into profit, if you play like a pro. Tournaments will develop your skills, your strength will be improved and you will get to meet new friends who can change your life completely. The benefits of OxyHives ingredients will certainly help you to impress your friends and you will feel significantly better in your own skin.

You will gain muscles and lower body fat if you will play football at least once per week. It does not matter if you are no longer young – you will enhance your cardiovascular health because running, walking and jogging will keep your heart’s rate up and strengthen the walls of your blood vessels. Hence you will reduce the risk of suffering from a heart attack and you will easily burn excess calories without having to follow drastic diets.

Your football mates will encourage you

Hit the ball and score for your team in case you wish to boost up confidence and develop your social skills. You will manage to reduce anxiety in a better way than with pills or other therapies. Hearing your name and receiving the praises of your colleagues is sure to bring you up, no matter what your personal problems are.

You can play football anytime and at any age. Rangers AFC will welcome you in our team, we will teach you to play football like a professional player and you will get to love every second spend with us. Men, women, teens and elderly people will receive a warm welcome here, in New Zealand, and you will get to play for one of the oldest football clubs in Canterbury.

Gain an increased aerobic capacity, raise your stamina levels and build more muscle mass by playing football. Stay with us after practice, we will socialize and we will encourage you to befriend with the other football players. Play football to win new friends and enhance your overall health!
