McCowatt, Parker-Price, and Wilkins sign for Auckland City

Olé Football Academy trio Callum McCowatt, Owen Parker-Price and Dalton Wilkins have signed for ISPS Handa Premiership side Auckland City Football Club.

They join fellow Olé player Harry Edge who returns to Auckland City for a second season.

The Navy Blues have won the Premiership six times since it was launched in 2004, and won their seventh consecutive OFC Champions League title earlier this year, further cementing their place as the best side in Oceania.

Auckland City have already launched their pre-season with games against the New Zealand U17 side and fellow Premiership side Hamilton Wanderers.

All four Olé players started the Hamilton game with McCowatt scoring a nine-minute hattrick for the Navy Blues.

Auckland City start their league campaign in Wellington on 15 October when they take on Team Wellington in a rematch of last season’s Grand Final.
