NZ Northern Women’s Premier

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 […]

Torn

Tauranga City United 2, Forrest Hill Milford 3 Links Avenue, Mount Maunganui, July 24 2016 I am really torn about this. I want to write about my trip over the Kaimai Hills to Tauranga City United and Links Avenue. I want to write about the wonderful hospitality that they afforded […]

Murdoch magic

Papatoetoe 4, Hamilton Wanderers 1 Murdoch Park, Auckland, June 12 2016 There’s more football on than you can shake a stick at right now. We’ve had the Football Ferns playing two games against Australia in Australia last week, we’ve had the All Whites book a place at the Confederations Cup […]

A close encounter

Norwest 0, Eastern Suburbs 3 Huapai Domain, Auckland, May 22, 2016 Family commitments and a netball game (GO MAGIC!) took me out of football watching action yesterday, but I was back on deck and raring to go today! My choice of game was one of heart vs head. My heart […]

A bookie’s dream

Three Kings 5, Glenfield Rovers 1 Keith Hay Park, Auckland, May 8 2016 Before this game, there were still three teams I hadn’t yet blogged about so far this NRFL Women’s Premier League season. Those three sides were Glenfield, Norwest and Western Springs. I had been planning to go to […]

Derby della Tron

Claudelands Rovers 2, Hamilton Wanderers 2 Galloway Park, Hamilton, May 1 2016 May the first is usually associated with one of two things – May poles, or trade unionists marching up Queen Street (up rather than down because it’s all about the struggle comrades) singing Solidarity Forever. But today, May […]

An even plane

Papatoetoe 2, Forrest Hill Milford 1 Murdoch Park, Auckland, April 24 2016 And the run continues! Three weekends in a row when it’s been fine on Saturday and wet on Sunday. What’s going on? Once again we have had men’s football in perfect conditions and women’s football in miserable ones. […]
