Inoculation

Melville United 1, Onehunga Sports 3 Gower Park, Hamilton, July 14 2018 I went to two football games last weekend. One made it to 90 minutes, the other one not so much. But to be honest with you, the one that didn’t was the one I actually did my job […]

Woulda coulda shoulda

Glenfield Rovers 1, Forrest Hill Milford 1 McFetridge Park, Auckland, May 27 2018 The choices of Northern League football games to attend this Sunday consisted of any game you like, as long as it was Glenfield v Forrest Hill Milford. Not that I minded too much. Any derby is always […]

Winter 2017

With cup finals day looming large this coming Sunday, the time has come to sadly accept that another winter of football is almost at an end. To mark this solemn occasion, I have compiled a collection of the eighteen images that I feel best sum up this, the seventh grassroots […]

The beautiful game

Three Kings United 3, Forrest Hill Milford 0 Keith Hay Park, Auckland, August 13 2017 Picking games is always a bit tricky for me at the business end of the season. I try to be present whenever trophies are clinched, but this must be balanced with practicalities. I can’t watch […]

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 […]

Ten snapshots of NRFL 2016

I can’t believe it’s August already. Where does the winter disappear to? It seems like about fifteen minutes ago that I was attending my first NRFL game of the year, yet last weekend saw me photograph the first of the four trophy presentations that herald the end of the competitive […]

Game three

New Zealand Under 20 1, USA Under 19 4 North Harbour Stadium, Auckland, June 19 2016 What can you say about the final fixture in a three game international series, featuring largely the same two sides, when you’ve already blogged the first two games and the result of the third […]

Night shooting

New Zealand 5, New Zealand Invitational XI 0 North Harbour Stadium, Auckland, January 26 2016 I had permission to photograph the second leg of the Football Ferns’ Olympic qualification tie vs Papua New Guinea on Tuesday night. If you keep up with the news you’ll be aware that New Zealand’s […]
