Football Chat: Gearing up for new season


Season 2 of Football Chat is upon us and our opening game is one you don’t want to miss.

Host Morgan Jarvis is joined by Green Island men’s coach Shane Carvell and Dunedin Tech’s Hannah Mackay-Wright, who recently attended a New Zealand Under-20 ID Camp. 

The trio discuss the revamped men’s Southern Premiership structure, which sees the top three teams winning a spot in a brand-new league.

This season sees some changes in teams competing, with the amalgamation of Caversham and Dunedin Tech’s Men’s team giving us the South City Royals.

Hannnah gives us an insight into the pressure of playing for Tech, who remain undefeated in the league and are targeting the Kate Sheppard cup this year.

Coach of last season’s men’s champions, Shane Carvell, tells of his desire to win the league again and previews the weekend’s fixtures.
