It’s 2017! Just on the off chance you hadn’t already managed to deduce that fact… It’s somewhat traditional for me to welcome in any new year with a rather dry and boring outline of my blogging plans for the year ahead, as well as ushering in a new look for […]

When New Zealand Rugby, New Zealand Football, New Zealand Cricket, New Zealand Rugby League, Netball New Zealand and Hockey New Zealand came together at the end of May this year to create #SportIsForEveryone, I cheered.

Ever since they made their debut a few months back, the first generation in-the-back-of-the.net t-shirts have been selling like hotcakes! Thanks mum, and the three others who have bought them. In all seriousness, sales so far have provided a princely profit of $25, which ain’t nothing – it’s almost enough […]

When I started in-the-back-of-the.net, the original idea was that it would eventually become a group blog. I wanted this to be a place where other New Zealand footballaholics could come and express themselves via the written word and/or read about the beautiful game from a New Zealand perspective.

Two things have been happening a bit lately. One is people telling me that there should be in-the-back-of-the.net t-shirts. The other is my bank balance telling me I should really try to find a fun way to recoup some of the costs I incur pursuing my hobby. So this is […]
