Possible outcomes are an East Coast win or a Dunedin Tech win.

Just becase the quality of wellington football is so poor that there 1/4 finalists got knocked out by two quaility south island teams doesn't mean that the pinnacle of of New Zealand Football isn't vitally important.

Im going to have to say Tech to win. Be good to know a team from Otago can actually win something.

I reckon Tech can pull off a victory although I did read somwhere that Burgess was injured? Does anybody know if he will be right in time for the final cos that would make a big difference to Tech's chances.
Tech and ECB have both had easy victories last 2 weeks in league.

The burgess stiuation on the 23rd of august in an SPL game vs Green Island he did a hamstring. Talked to the tech physio at 1/2 time he said it was a 2 and 1/2 week job with the final in three weeks time (as at the 23rd). Burgess hasn't been seen playing since.
 
On a different matter Tech have a vital game tonight aginst roslyn under lights at carisbrook to decide who will join champs cavey in the south island champ semifinals

I must say, I love a physio who can give the length of time a player is going to be out for to within a 1/2 week  after a changing room assessment especially when the important game is only a few days later than that

the game is not on sky sport live i emailed nz soccer and they said that highlights of the game will be on the world of football which i think is a bit disappointing.
Burgess will be fit for the fnal i have talked to him and he said that he will have tonights game of vs roslyn but will look to play 45mins vs qtown. the injury wasnt as bad as first thought.
would love to see Tech take the cup!!!

Luke - The standard of Football is very strong in the south.
Tech could only manage a 1-1 draw with Roslyn last night. The final three places were Cavvie, Roslyn and then Tech.

I'm from the Shore and that's exactly why i don't want Bays to win. Anyone not associated with Bays doesn't like them. I fall into the boat of not being associated with them so therefore i don't like them.

C'mon Tech!!

I heard on the radio sport football show on Sunday night there would be no tv coverage of cup final...disappointing. Hardly seen any media coverage either. leigh kenyon and Aaron Burgess were on the radio on sunday but thats about it. Pretty sad considering its the biggest trophy in NZ winter soccer.

It's the first one in quite a while that hasn't been televised.

Probably a victim of NZ Footballs funding shortage as I suspect they have always paid for it.

I know that Matt Parkin made it to the chatham cup final with Melville a few year back.... not too sure where he has gone? Is Campbell "Sheep Dog" Parkin related to him? If so, has he got the chance to be the first chance to win it in the family or has his old man won it with Napier back in the day?

I had a wee email battle with NZS two years ago when they took off the NZFC hi-lites show and they said it was all to do with money, and they were committed to to improving the content so 'hang in there'.
 
Well I have been hanging for a while now, and things aren't getting any better! Now no Cup Final!!!!

John Chisholm has a wise head on young shoulders and his composure will be key to Dunedin Technical's chances in the Chatham Cup final tomorrow night.

At 22, Chisholm is younger than many of his team-mates.

He was not even born when the All Whites had their World Cup adventure in 1982, and he was only 13 when Tech won the Chatham Cup in 1999.

But wily Tech coach Mike Fridge saw leadership qualities in the central defender that made him the obvious choice as skipper.

Chisholm smiled when asked if 22 was rather young to be captain of a side on the verge of being crowned New Zealand club champion.

"It is, I guess. But I've been around the club a long time, since I played Fletcher Cup for Caversham. It's been a great experience being captain of this team but it took a while to get used to.

"I just try to be as vocal as I can. That's something Mike has tried to instil in me as much as possible. It's important to keep up communication on the field.

"All the play's in front of me. I can see what's going on, so it's a good position to be captain."

Chisholm has developed a sound partnership at the back with veteran Blair Scoullar, a former attacking midfielder.

"I've learned so much from Blair. It's really good playing with him and I think we've formed a good partnership."

Reaching the Chatham Cup final has been a chance for Chisholm and a handful of his Technical team-mates to flush out the memory of last summer's disappointing Otago United campaign.

He has been busy with lectures at the University of Otago this week but thoughts of lifting the trophy at North Harbour Stadium against East Coast Bays tomorrow night are never far from his mind.

"I'm really excited right now. The final's been on my mind all week and now I just want to get up there and play. Obviously there will be a few nerves because it's a big occasion.

"But these are the games you want to play in."

This will be the last game for Chisholm in a Technical strip - at least for a while.

He's completing a degree in economics and finance and has accepted a job in Auckland. He will continue to play but does not know what club he will join.

The John McGlashan College old boy has had his share of international experience.

He trialled for several clubs in the United Kingdom before spending a year at the University of New Mexico, following in the footsteps of former Otago defender and All White Andy Boyens.

"That was really good but it would have taken me five years to finish my degree. I decided to come back and finish my degree here.

"Possibly it would have been good for me to keep playing at college. But the national league back here is a good standard, and it just made sense to come back and get a better degree quicker."

Many rated Chisholm the best back in the New Zealand Football Championship last season and he was named Otago United player of the year.

His father, former Caversham defender Bill Chisholm, will be in Auckland tomorrow hoping to see Dunedin Technical win the Chatham Cup for the second time.
