A VARy strange ending

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 […]

Missing in action

Western Springs 1, Glenfield Rovers 2 Seddon Fields, Auckland, March 25 2018 All systems go!** Everyone’s favourite regional football league (the Northern Regional Football League in case you were wondering) got underway last weekend. And what an opening round it was! New kids, both of which I’m a big fan […]

The walk of Shane

Western Springs 3, Hibiscus Coast 0 Seddon Fields, Auckland, September 2 2017 It’s over! The NRFL season is done and dusted, save for one Women’s Premier game. And it’s only the 3nd of September – that must be some sort of Northern League record for ruthless efficiency. Over the last […]

North

North Shore 2, Western Springs 1 Allen Hill Stadium, Auckland, July 1 2017 It may be right up there with my favourite venues in Auckland to watch football at, but will I ever take a decent photo at Allen Hill Stadium? I’m beginning to think not. The place can’t get […]

Match of the round

Hope springs eternal

Western Springs 2, Claudelands Rovers 0 Seddon Fields, Auckland, April 30 2017 It’s almost May and this is the first time I have watched a Hamilton team play in the NRFL this season. That’s all down to a little thing the pros like to call ‘self-control’. If I was totally […]

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 […]

A rare affliction

I was all set to round off the NRFL season by heading off to Eastern Suburbs vs Western Springs yesterday, but I was unexpectedly prevented from doing so by a rare condition I suddenly found myself afflicted with – I couldn’t be bothered. The fact that it was wet and […]

Good things come in threes

Western Springs 0, Glenfield Rovers 5 Seddon Fields, Auckland, July 17 2016 I can’t take it back – Glenfield were my pick for the Northern Premier Women’s League crown at the start of the season. I said as much to anyone who asked. As I cast my eye over the […]
