Changes afoot

I have recently caught wind of a few potential changes that are strongly rumoured to be under consideration for the NRFL following a review of the competition. My understanding is that we are still a ways off any final decisions being made, with any changes that are eventually agreed upon […]

Kings no more?

Eastern Suburbs 2, Three Kings 0 Madills Farm, Auckland, May 7 2017 It’s only been three short weeks since I was last at Madills Farm but, in the intervening time, change has been afoot. Green has been replaced by orange as the predominant hue of the surrounding deciduous trees – […]

Hope springs eternal

Western Springs 2, Claudelands Rovers 0 Seddon Fields, Auckland, April 30 2017 It’s almost May and this is the first time I have watched a Hamilton team play in the NRFL this season. That’s all down to a little thing the pros like to call ‘self-control’. If I was totally […]

Cooked

Norwest United 0, Eastern Suburbs 7 Huapai Domain, Auckland, April 4 2017 Last weekend was Rivalism Weekend, but I wasn’t planning on letting that stop me from road tripping down to Hamilton for today’s Derby della Tron. I had been immensely looking forward to seeing Hamilton Wanderers and Claudelands Rovers face […]

Rivalism Weekend – 3/3

Forrest Hill Milford 1, Glenfield Rovers 3 Becroft Park, Auckland, April 9 2017 Derbies are a lot like the words in the English language. Ever evolving, some of them are as old as the hills and yet while others may barely be five minutes old, it’s obvious that they are […]

Rivalism Weekend – 2/3

Forrest Hill Milford 4, Glenfield Rovers 1 Becroft Park, Auckland, April 9 2017 I’m not a morning person. I can’t stress that enough. This is why football works so well for me. It’s an afternoon game. As a general rule, no Sunday morning sleep-ins are harmed in the making of […]

After the storm

Western Springs 1, Three Kings 4 Seddon Fields, Auckland, March 13 2017 A few short hours before it was time to head over to Seddon Fields for my chosen football excursion of last weekend, it was raining. And when I say it was raining, that is probably the biggest understatement […]

Shine bright like a diamond

Papatoetoe 2, Wellington United 3 Murdoch Park, Auckland, March 5 2017 Keep your TV cameras and your coffee machines that I’ll never win. Keep your ground announcers and your glossy programmes. Keep your ten teams from up and down the country vying to win national supremacy and your 700 flags […]

Ten snapshots of NRFL 2016

I can’t believe it’s August already. Where does the winter disappear to? It seems like about fifteen minutes ago that I was attending my first NRFL game of the year, yet last weekend saw me photograph the first of the four trophy presentations that herald the end of the competitive […]

Three Kings crowned

Glenfield Rovers 2, Three Kings United 3 McFetridge Park, Auckland, July 31 2016 Three Kings United were crowned champions of the NRFL Women’s Premier Division with three games to spare today after coming from behind in a seesaw match to beat Glenfield Rovers at McFetridge Park. And their hard fought […]
