Black and goals

Glenfield Rovers 5, Eastern Suburbs 4 North Harbour Stadium, Auckland, September 10 2017 Wow. I thought last year’s Women’s Knockout Cup final would take some beating in terms of an exciting advertisement for the women’s game, but this year’s may well have raised the bar even higher for many observers!

Guest Post – Technical Knockout

By Morgan Jarvis Earlier on the same day that the All Blacks and Wallabies were to play out a thrilling Bledisloe Cup match under the roof at Forsyth Barr Stadium, there was history being made just a few hundred metres away. Dunedin Technical was hosting Glenfield Rovers in the Women’s […]

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 […]

McFourtridge

Glenfield Rovers 0, Birkenhead United 4 McFetridge Park, Auckland, June 5 2017 It has been suggested, on one or two… hundred occasions, that I am a one eyed Birkenhead United supporter. Or as one contributor to the Northern League Forum once put it after Birko gave me a shirt to […]

Rivalism Weekend – 3/3

Forrest Hill Milford 1, Glenfield Rovers 3 Becroft Park, Auckland, April 9 2017 Derbies are a lot like the words in the English language. Ever evolving, some of them are as old as the hills and yet while others may barely be five minutes old, it’s obvious that they are […]

Rivalism Weekend – 2/3

Forrest Hill Milford 4, Glenfield Rovers 1 Becroft Park, Auckland, April 9 2017 I’m not a morning person. I can’t stress that enough. This is why football works so well for me. It’s an afternoon game. As a general rule, no Sunday morning sleep-ins are harmed in the making of […]

Number 7

Melville United 3, Glenfield Rovers 0 Gower Park, Hamilton, March 18 2017 Going to football in the Waikato is a time consuming business sometimes. Yesterday especially! Not only did I have to drive for two hours to get to Gower Park for this pre-season fixture, but upon arrival I got […]

Swans up!

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?

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 […]

An eye opener

Hamilton Wanderers 0, Glenfield Rovers 1 Porritt Stadium, Hamilton, August 6 2016 “So let me get this straight, the youngest member of the team has made the bus late.” “I know, 17 years old. He should be there early warming up all the seats for us.” Here I was, on […]
