NZ Women’s KO Cup

Swans up!

Berger with a key intervention on Dayna Stevens

Forrest Hill Milford 2, Glenfield Rovers 2 AET (FHM won 4-3 on penalties) North Harbour Stadium, Auckland, September 11 2016 With all my excitement over the Chatham Cup, you might have thought I had forgotten that there were two cup finals on yesterday. Well, no fear of that. Even if […]

Script? What Script?

Rood taking the plaudits

Glenfield Rovers 1, Upper Hutt City 0 McFetridge Park, Auckland, August 27 2016 If New Zealand Women’s Knockout Cup semi-final day had a script, nobody stuck to it! I strongly suspect most observers, when pressed for pre-game predictions, would have expected Cashmere Technical to give Forrest Hill Milford a real […]

Seatoun 0 Upper Hutt City 1 aet National Women’s Knock-out Cup Quarter-Final Sunday 17 July 2016 Seatoun Park A goal at the end of extra-time from Kennedy Bryant saw Upper Hutt through to the semi-final of the national cup. It was a fine day, but the bumpy field at Seatoun […]

Good things come in threes

Rood's second goal - a beautiful left foot blast

Western Springs 0, Glenfield Rovers 5 Seddon Fields, Auckland, July 17 2016 I can’t take it back – Glenfield were my pick for the Northern Premier Women’s League crown at the start of the season. I said as much to anyone who asked. As I cast my eye over the […]

All roads lead to Vegas

Robyn Fisher's turn to collide with Cadwallader

Rotorua United 2, Central United 0 Neil Hunt Park, Rotorua, June 5 2016 So far 2016 has been a winter of football road-trips! I’ve been to Hamilton (twice), Taupo, Dargaville, Whangarei and Kaeo. Throw in yesterday’s excursion to watch Rotorua United host Central in the New Zealand Women’s Knockout Cup, […]

Petfive BNUone

Petone 5 Brooklyn Northern United 1 National Women’s Knock-Out Cup Round 1 Sunday 15 May 2016 Due to Central League clubs receiving byes or out-of-town away ties, the only games in Wellington for Round 1 of the National Women’s Knock-Out Cup were between Capital Premier League sides. I had a […]

Wai vs BOP

Kim Maguire's first half goal The Melville defender is Annie Oxborrow

Melville 2, Rotorua United 3 Gower Park, Hamilton, May 15 2016 In my book, no cup weekend is complete without a taste of the New Zealand Women’s Knockout Cup. That’s why it worked out brilliantly that on the way back from our road trip to Taupo, Gina and I were […]

Feeling groovy

Emily Oosterhof

Glenfield Rovers 2, Western Springs 0 McFetridge Park, Auckland, August 23 2015 I think if you check the road between Swanson and Glenfield, you might find that I’m starting to wear grooves where my car tyres have driven repeatedly between my house and McFetridge Park! This New Zealand Women’s Knockout […]
