New look: New captain Bill Robertson, right, shows off the new home strip of newly named Kinetic Electrical
Hawke's Bay United. New signing Adam Cowan, the former long-serving captain of Manawatu, is in the new
light-blue away strip to be worn in the 2011-12 ASB Premiership.
Hawke's Bay United defenders Bill Robertson and
new signing Adam Cowan are both looking for-
ward to United's first ASB Premiership home
match against Youngheart Manawatu next
Sunday, but for slightly different reasons.
Robertson, anointed as Kinetic Electrical
Hawke's Bay United's new captain after the
retirement of Jonathan Taylor, will be making his
first appearance this season after he missed Unit-
ed's opener against Waitakere because of a carry-
over suspension for too many yellow cards.
For Cowan, the ASB Premiership's all-time
appearance leader, the game will be his first at
Park Island's Bluewater Stadium, and first
against the team he captained and played for over
Not that Cowan has any mixed emotions about
running out against his former team-mates.
It's going to be awesome, I can't wait. Obvi-
ously I know everyone that's playing, so it will be
quite fun to go out and give a little bit of banter.
But I am most looking forward to getting the win.''
The 30-year-old said it didn't take too much to
entice him to the Bay.
I pretty much just wanted a change after six
years playing for Youngheart. It's a good oppor-
tunity and we've got young squad that's looking
really promising. We'd be looking at a top-four
finish with this squad, that's for sure.''
Cowan has slotted in well with Robertson and
his Napier City Rovers team-mate Danny Wilson
in a defensive line-up that did not concede a goal
in three pre-season matches.
Our back two [Robertson and Wilson] played
all winter with each other at Rovers, so they've got
a great combination going. And [Englishman]
Stevie [Hindmarch] is going to be a very good
signing. He's a very good centre midfielder who
cleans up a lot of ball for us,'' Cowan said.
Robertson was vice-captain last season and led
United in one game in the absence of Taylor.
There's a lot of history at United and a lot of
proud people involved. To captain the region's
premier football team is a real honour,'' says Rob-
ertson, adding he would lead from the back.
As a defender, and I guess as a captain, I pride
myself on keeping as many clean sheets as poss-
ible. We want teams to know when they are
coming here [to Park Island] they will be in for a
tough game, and it's not going to be an easy place
to score goals and pick up points.
That's the mentality we want to install.''
United hosts Manawatu at Park Island on
Sunday, November 6. Kickoff at 2pm.
