Having been in business on
the Coast for over 28 years, I
“a real wake
with the response generated
from my recent daily
advertising in the Greymouth
I have done a fair bit of
advertising over the years,
but recently started a regular
advert in the Greymouth Star.
I admit the response
generated has been a real
eye-opener. You tend to
become a bit complacent
and get into the mindset that
because it's the Coast, and
I have been around for a
number of years, everybody
knows who we are and
where we are. But this is no
longer the case, with the
Coast having such a transient
population, you really do
need to have that regular
presence. I also found that
locals who did know of my
business had forgotten about
me, so I am now seeing not
only new customers, but old
clientele as well.
It is hard sometimes to gauge
if your advertising spend is
working, but I credit having
an advert that created a
talking point – mentioning I
was open until 11pm – as a
fantastic way of proving to
me that I was getting the best
return from any advertising I
had ever done.
Newspaper advertising works!

Mac Gibson, 11, gains momentum as he launches the discus at Saturday’s junior athletics at Anzac Park.
Junior athletics results
Wellington Phoenix were defeated on
the pitch but are buoyant off it as they
continue their effort to confirm a long-
term place in the A-League.
Last night ’s 3-0 loss to Melbourne
Victory was the Phoenix’s first match
since an incendiary Football Federation
Australia announcement to deny the
club a 10-year licence extension it seeks.
Both sets of fans, among the 24,934 at
Etihad Stadium, showed their contempt
for the FFA decision by unfurling hefty
“Save the Nix” banners prior to kick off.
Phoenix coach Ernie Merrick said it
was a gesture very much appreciated by
“ We get a great deal of support in New
Zealand but the support we’ve got over
here is fantastic, from the clubs, from
coaches and from the fans,” he said.
Merrick said the issue did not affect his
players last night as the issue “had been
running for about nine months”.
The former Victory boss said he also
believed Phoenix’s commitment to
attacking football was drawing support.
“ We got a really good crowd tonight ...
helping Victory have a crowd of 25,000
says something. It was an exciting game
and we play the kind of football that
people want to see. ”
In the crowd, Yellow Fever fan group
member David Lucas was one of an
estimated 30 Phoenix fans to have made
the trip to Melbourne for the match.
For the first time in the club’s history,
the fans also brought their giant yellow
sign with them, which carried the Save
The Nix slogan.
Lucas, who thanked Victory for their
support, said the banner was designed to
ram home the message to FFA.
“ We know we’ve got the support of the
other teams, we’ve had so many messages
of encouragement,” he said.
He said time was the crucial factor in
improving Wellington’s supporter base.
Hatter hopes the tide is already
turning, after last week’s near-universal
condemnation of FFA’s move from clubs
and fans alike.
“The FFA has seen what sort of
reaction has been garnered from the
rest of the A-League and they ’re now
putting out fires,” he said.
“ When you have the chairman of other
teams, and the fans, you’ve got to listen.”
The sourest note from the match was
a hamstring tear to Vince Lia which
Merrick said “looked bad” on an initial
reaction. — AAP
Lauren Boyle produced strong
early season form with victory
in the penultimate round of the
FINA World Cup in Doha.
Boyle won the 800m freestyle
final after earlier finishing fourth
in the final of the 200m freestyle.
She beat off the challenge from
Welsh swimmer Jaz Carlin, who
won last year’s 800m freestyle
final over the New Zealander
at the Commonwealth Games
before Boyle reversed the
result in the 400m freestyle in
Boyle, the world silver
medallist, won in 8:24.76 to
finish two and a half seconds
clear of Carlin with Germany’s
Sarah Kohler third.
The Great Britain swimmer
pushed the pace in the early
stages, with Boyle edging ahead
at the 300m mark. Carlin
remained in touch until the
500m before Boyle’s strength
and fitness prevailed, pulling
away impressively in her first
international swim of the season.
Earlier she qualified for the
final of the 200m freestyle,
finishing fourth in 1:59.89
in the race won by last year’s
World Cup overall champion
Katinka Hosszu (Hungary) from
former world record holder and
Olympic gold medallist Federica
Boyle will compete in the
400m freestyle tomorrow before
competing in the final World
Cup meet in Dubai at the
weekend. She was the only New
Zealand swimmer to qualify for
finals on the first day of the two-

Hayne still waiting on NFL future
Jarryd Hayne appears headed back to the
San Francisco 49ers.
After the 49ers axed Hayne on Saturday the
Australian was available to be signed by the
NFL’s other 31 teams, but he went unclaimed
when the deadline passed at 8am today.
His three fumbles as punt returner and lack
of development as a running back meant he
made it through waivers, and is likely to re-
join the 49ers, although there has been no
official word from Hayne or the club.
Hayne intimated in a tweet to his 49ers
team-mates soon after his axing on Saturday
that he would return to the 49ers if no other
NFL club signed him, telling them “if nothing
happens I’ll be back on Tuesday ”.
The 49ers coach Jim Tomsula refused to
talk about Hayne at yesterday morning’s press
conference, but said the 49ers were looking
for new running backs. They are desperate
for running backs and a punt returner after
injuries to Reggie Bush and Mike Davis in
yesterday ’s loss to the St Louis Rams and
Carlos Hyde ruled out last week with a foot
The team is reportedly bringing in free agent
and journeyman Ben Tate, who has played for
the Cleveland Browns, Minnesota Vikings
and Pittsburgh Steelers, for a workout.
After the St Louis loss, their sixth in eight
games, the 49ers appear to have switched to a
rebuilding mode. — AP
