Photo: SHANE WENZLICK Look on most score sheets for Waitakere United this season and you will probably find the name Allan Pearce. Pearce has been in sublime form for Waitakere in the New Zealand premiership and O-League and is a strong candi- date for the Golden Boot award. Pearce was surprised with his success in the early stages of the premiership. It is better then previous seasons because usually I start a bit slow,'' he says. I am going really well this season but it just reflects how well the team is doing as a whole.'' Coach Neil Emblen says the 27-year-old striker has taken on more of a leadership role over the past few years. Allan's play in general has been quality and he has taken extra responsibility each year,'' he says. He is leading by example and I'm really pleased with his work rate.'' Pearce says he is comfortable with more authority being placed on his shoulders. I am probably the fourth oldest in the team so I think I had to become a leader with the amount of younger guys we have at the club,'' he says. He is hoping his form will earn him another chance in the All Whites this year. He has one international cap to his name -- against New Cal- edonia in 2008. Young athlete goes all out for gold Elena Chetland de Vries By RANI TIMOTI Winning medals is inspiring a Riverhead Athletics Club member to reach higher goals. Ten-year-old Elena Chet- land de Vries returned from the transtasman competition with a silver in high jump and a bronze in field relay. The Waimauku resident was in the Auckland team province which recently con- tested against 10 to 11-year- olds New South Wales and Australian Capital Territory athletes at Sydney's Black- town Olympic Park. She works hard and she really puts in 100 percent effort. When she found out she was in the transtasman she practised every day,'' mum Hattie de Vries says. Elena says the Australians were double their number and were really good competi- tors. However, she managed to exceed her own personal best high jump to gain a silver medal and then a bronze in the field relay which involves one long jump, one discus throw and one shot put. I like athletics because when you go to events you meet new people -- they give you tips and you give them tips and you learn all the time.'' The Waimauku School all-round student also appreciates the support she receives from family, friends, and local businesses. Thank you to all the people who helped me fund- raise to travel to Australia.'' This year's busy schedule includes athletics events like the Auckland regional pen- tathlon and Auckland cham- pions of champions. Elena is also in the Norwest Chargers champion 10th grade girls team from the Huapai-based Norwest United Soccer and Sports Club. Hoping to be selected for the next transtasman event hosted by Auckland, Elena already favours high jump and long jump and will be getting outside coaching help to improve her perform- ance. Most of the kids who come to Riverhead come for fun. But we also have some really good athletes and we want to be able to give them the opportunity to go further, says Hattie, who is the club president.
