Lucky charm

Glenfield Rovers 2, Three Kings 2 (Glenfield won 3-1 on penalties) McFetridge Park, Auckland, June 24 2018 Cup days always present a dilemma for me when it comes to where to go and who to watch. So many tasty clashes to choose from and so little ability to be in […]

Match of the round

Western Springs 1, Glenfield Rovers 2 Seddon Fields, Auckland, June 25 2017 The gender balance of my football watching has been a bit out lately. Lots of men’s games and not enough women’s games. I am suitably ashamed of myself, you can rest assured. Last weekend saw a nice opportunity […]
