CHASE: Purutaitama striker Sam Ward chases the ball in a recent game against Waikanae Jets.


Ōtaki’s Purutaitama senior football team is one win away from playing in the Wellington Capital competition next year.

The team has already won the Horowhenu-Kāpiti division 1 title, but now need to beat a Wairarapa team to go in the Weallington league.

Club trainer/coach Hape Porter says the team has had a great season.

“I’ve been involved in local sports teams, and what comes through strongly in Ōtaki is the belief in a common set of values. It guides everyone in what they do – on and off the field. I’m sure that’s why we’ve been so sccessful at Purutaitama.”

The club is part of the Ōtaki Squash, Tennis and Soccer Club based at Haruatai Park. All three codes share the clubrooms, providing a venue for games, practices and hosting for visiting teams.
