Football has the largest number of teams of any sporting code at the College (currently 13).

Football Girls

The First XI, playing back in the Premiership for the first time in four years, have been a little unlucky not to have notched up more wins. They have narrowly lost to a number of the top sides in the division and can be proud of their efforts to date. Without doubt the highlight of the season so far was the 4-1 thrashing that they handed out to Auckland Grammar when they played away on the King’s vs Grammar day. This was the first time ever that King’s had won the Morris-Kelly cup since it’s inception 2005. With a run of consecutive home games to come, the First XI are still well in contention in the league and have it all to play for. 

Football Boys

The Girls' First XI have had a very strong season to date. Playing in the Senior A1 division the girls have played 7, won 5, lost 2. They narrowly lost their semi-final match 0-2 and will now play off for 3rd place. Having qualified for the Top Tier of the National tournament later in the season the girl’s still have much to play for.

In the other grades there have been some mixed results although a lack of consistency has been the downfall for a number of teams. One week they play some great football and then the next it is as if the team are playing together for the first time!
