There are several people whose work behind the scenes allows Summer League
to actually happen. These people provide their time and services
voluntarily. Some participate in the League, while others are there purely
from a sense of community and all do their bit out of love of the game.
Summer League stalwart Jamie first entered the
competition as player/manager of Barca Bay in season three. Jamie
occassionally provides referee duties too.
He still serves his original roles, but today his duties are supplemented
with that of Peter's replacement as the new Commissioner.
As one of the most respected members of Wellington's
football community, League Commissioner and creator of Summer League,
Peter is the final arbiter on all matters. Despite his associations with one
of the teams, he is known for his sense of fair play and is unquestionably
free of bias.
Peter is also an accomplished player in his own
right. His Summer League playing history has mainly been with The Originals,
but he has also filled in for for several other teams. Generally considers
himself a defender, but has often performed well in goal.
Now retired, Peter remains involved by reffing every couple of weeks.
Colin was brought into the Summer League organisation
to provide Peter with logistical support in all sorts of areas. He ensures
the team sheets are completed and helps with the set-up and teardown of the
Despite being one of the few
organisers not to play, Colin is generally the first to arrive and the last
to leave each match day.
Colin's presence facilitating is missed.
A stalwart of the league with over 50 appearances.
Most of those appearances have been for The Originals, but Rod has a
significant number filling in for other teams too.
He built the Summer League goals and provides
valuable financial sponsorship to the League via his company Coolmoves.
Rod has also been the subject of an inordinate
number of news items, due to his ability to be photographed in compromising
Rod has retired from active duty.
Another league stalwart, with more league appearances
than any other player. Michael started with The Originals, before
transferring to HHH United for three seasons but reverted back to the Os
when HHH discontinued. This season saw him sign for Red Rockers.
He took over the responsibility for the website and
statistics from Phil Jones from 2005/06. Michael provides indirect financial
sponsorship by paying for the Summer League domain name and subsidises about half the hosting
costs of the site.
Sharon is another one of the organisation who does not
play, yet spends more time at Summer League than most. She takes all of the
photographs that help enhance the online experience provided by Summer
So if you see her, smile and try not to get caught in
a dodgy pose like, say, a certain Scotsman does.
