And so the 2017 edition of the Chatham Cup got off to an exciting start this past weekend, with some games also being played on ANZAC Day on Tuesday 25th April.

There we debuts for clubs such as HNK Auckland Croatia of the Auckland Sunday Football League, and also for the Kiwi True Blues, who are a Glasgow Rangers supporters club based in Auckland. The results can be found below…

A big thank you to Grant Stantiall for the quite brilliant photographs taken at Weka Street, Hamilton (see more below). To view his superb collection of Kiwi football photos, click here.
