Forrest Hill Milford 1, Western Springs 0 Becroft Park, Auckland, August 12 2018 Sunday was a gloriously sunny winter’s day that saw me finally get out and watch what was shamefully only the second full reserves game I have seen in my life. Of course, my reason for attending this […]

Ugly ducklings
