Get a grip

The secret formula to getting local football covered by the mainstream media seems to have been unearthed.  In recent days the NRFL has made headlines for the wrong reasons – those being two fights, one in South Auckland and one on the North Shore. At least the diverse locations show […]

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 […]

Wanderers Weekend Part 2 – The Keith

Three Kings 1, Hamilton Wanderers 1 Keith Hay Park, Auckland, May 20 2018 The last time I watched the Hamilton Wanderers women’s first team they were battling through a relegation six pointer vs Northland at Porritt Stadium. Despite prevailing 3-2 in that fixture they were still looking down the barrel […]

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 […]

A troncing

Claudelands 5, Three Kings 2 Galloway Park, Hamilton, July 30 2017 It’s been a while! The last NRFL Women’s Premier fixture I attended was two months ago, almost to the day. Since then it’s fair to say that things have developed a bit. But despite the thirty six odd games […]

Kings no more?

Eastern Suburbs 2, Three Kings 0 Madills Farm, Auckland, May 7 2017 It’s only been three short weeks since I was last at Madills Farm but, in the intervening time, change has been afoot. Green has been replaced by orange as the predominant hue of the surrounding deciduous trees – […]

After the storm

Western Springs 1, Three Kings 4 Seddon Fields, Auckland, March 13 2017 A few short hours before it was time to head over to Seddon Fields for my chosen football excursion of last weekend, it was raining. And when I say it was raining, that is probably the biggest understatement […]

An uber victory

Three Kings United 0, Central United 5 Keith Hay Park, Auckland, September 17 2016 It’s taken me a few years, but today I finally managed to finish off a feat I’ve been aiming towards for quite some time – managing to be in all the right places at all the […]

Three Kings crowned

Glenfield Rovers 2, Three Kings United 3 McFetridge Park, Auckland, July 31 2016 Three Kings United were crowned champions of the NRFL Women’s Premier Division with three games to spare today after coming from behind in a seesaw match to beat Glenfield Rovers at McFetridge Park. And their hard fought […]

But wait, there’s more!

At the risk of turning into one of THOSE bloggers that I don’t really want to be… I have been leaked two e-mails that appear to clearly inform Three Kings United that two of their players were incorrectly registered, and how this came to be the case, some five months before […]
