Does this name ring a Bell?


Ryan Kerr-Bell

Overwhelming guilt and insurmountable peer pressure is keeping Ryan Kerr-Bell at Narra next season!

Aged just a meagre two Mars years old (which equates to 23 Earth ones) Ryan has disclosed his summer plans in which he will be hiding from the sun devil under a shady tree somewhere in Middle Earth.

Inspired in his footballing aspirations by Hair Bear and an avid follower of some obscure footballing team in England (Manchester United) he has revealed that his main reason for joining Narra was career advancement. Continue reading

The Adventures of Matt-Man . . .

WILLIAMS MattMatty Williams, our attacking midfielder, will be gliding across the field for Narra again in 2015.

He is looking forward to increasing his tally of 186 first team games and adding to the 65 goals scored (at the rate of almost one goal for every three games played). He is currently the club’s highest goal-scorer; the nearest other being Nikolai Helwig with 55 goals.

Matt’s playing was cut short this past season through injury and he is using the summer layover to increase the strength in one of his knees (he’s not sure which one).

Steven Gerrard and Roy Keane are his idols, along with the Liverpool Club. Continue reading

Ben the Builder . . .


Ben in his first senior match (in 2010) playing against Lynn Avon Premier Reserves. The result was 6-0 to Narra.

Being 24 years old, with eight seasons with Narra behind him and specializing at right back, senior player Ben Latham is enthusiastic about taking the field for his club again in 2015.

Last summer (2013-2014) Ben was a member of the WaiBoP National League team and got a few games under his bootlaces. This summer he had the opportunity to be a squad member of WaiBoP again but turned this down so he could work on establishing his own construction company, Latham Builders Ltd. In 2014 he also wore the Captain’s armband for Narra. Continue reading

Programme of the Year

Winner: WaiBOP United edited by Dwayne Barlow and Josh Easby

Highly Commended: Petone edited by Steve Minogue, Waitemata edited by Mark Reid

WaiBOP United have won this category in the first year of the team’s existence. Petone were last year’s winners. First awarded in 1980, Programme of the Year was won by Gisborne City for the first eight years (1980-87) and then Napier City Rovers for the next 11 (1988-1999, shared with Hutt Valley United in 1992). Napier also won in 2011 for the 12th time, extending the club’s record.

Judge: Simon Kay (Former Writer of the Year)

Judge’s comments: “The standard for this year was extremely high and narrowing all the entries down to a top three was extremely difficult. Ellerslie, Ngaruawahia, Cambridge and Napier City Rovers all submitted excellent programmes and only narrowly missed making the finalists.  Continue reading
