Wellington Phoenix thrill young fans with open training


The Wellington Phoenix have endeared themselves to Nelson football fans with their opening training session at Trafalgar Park this afternoon.

The Phoenix, who are in town for tomorrow’s A-League preseason game against Central Coast Mariners, allowed people to view their training before they spent 40 minutes as a squad signing autographs and taking selfies with their fans.

Goal keeper Glen Moss even signed some of his gloves and gave them to a young fan.

Their match begins at 4pm tomorrow at Trafalgar Park while Tasman United debut in the curtain-raiser at 1.15pm.
