THAT Chatham Cup goal - what you didn't know!

SOCCER UTD: Congratulations on your outstanding performance in the recent game, Max. Can you walk us through one or two key saves or moments that you think were crucial to your success in that match?  MAX: I think there were a few regulation saves early in the game. If those would have gone in I'm sure the game would have been killed off a lot earlier. There was definitely one save around the end of the second-half of extra time where they've crossed the ball. I can't re...

Three 2022 Waikato football anniversaries - Part 2

This year is the 50th anniversary of Hamilton AFC winning the northern league first division in 1972 (there was no premier league in those days). They not only became the first club to take the northern league title out of Auckland, but in the process became the first Waikato club to qualify for the national league playoffs. In some high quality matches Hamilton drew 1-1, both home and away, with Wellington Diamond United, but in a third deciding match at Wembley Park, Wanganui, lost 2...

2022 WAIKATO FOOTBALL ANNIVERSARIES - Part 1

Firstly, 2022 marks the 60th anniversary of Technical Old Boys (Hamilton) becoming the first team outside the “four main centres” to win the Chatham Cup. The 1962 final at the Basin Reserve, in which they beat 1961 winners Northern 4-1, is regarded as one of the best finals of all time, after an explosive start in which both teams scored in the opening five minutes. Technical (or Old Technicals as they were sometimes known) had been given little chance by most pundits and beforehand Tech wer...

In praise of Tarena Ranui

There are loads of people within the Waikato who make a huge volunteer commitment to football. In many ways that is what keeps our code ticking at community level week in and week out. But for the purposes of this blog I thought I would highlight the efforts of one particular personality that Soccer United is this year sponsoring, if only because her impact has been so remarkable and so important to the ongoing development of our female footballers. I first met Tarena Ranui about 5-6 years ago, ...

Inaugural blog by co-owner Brooke Macdonald

When my brother Darby and I established the SOCCER UNITED football supplies shop (at 137 Alexandra St, Hamilton) last November it was something of a leap of faith. We don't have a retail background as such. However we are Hamilton businessmen who have built successful enterprises such as Research Motors and RFM Rentals. We know what we know, but also know what we don't know and in that regard we have really appreciated advice from those who do have expertise.  So in this debut blog I though...
