Half-Time Heroes: Australian Football Media Release

Tuesday July 28, 2009

Frank Lowy the chairman of Football Federation Australia (FFA) says that the desire that underpinned the revival of football at a local level is the same desire that motivates the World Cup bid.

Now that desire has spread to the fans. Some of Australia’s best underground football writers have banded together to start a brand new monthly football fanzine called Half-Time Heroes.

The first issue is out on Wednesday 5th August right before the new A-League season kicks off.

Go to the following websites and on the right hand side of the page enter your E-mail address and subscribe so you never miss an issue:

The Fanzine was the brainchild of Canberra based football writer and radio host Eamon Flanagan (the nearpost.blogspot com).

"It's time." that's all Flanagan would say.

Some of Australia’s most committed Football writers have joined.

They are: The Roar’s Tony Tannous (the round ball analyst), Mike Salter (The Football Tragic), Fiona Crawford (A girl called Fred), Con Stamocostas (A Football Story) and Bill Skinner (A Spawning Salmon/A Pissant Town) plus many, many more.

Half-Time Heroes:

The fanzine will take a serious and sometimes not so serious look at Australian Football.The first issue will feature stories and interviews with the Socceroos.

We cover every A-League club; including the two new teams the Gold Coast United and North Queensland Fury. The W-League and Youth League will also be featured.

The first bumper issue features over 20 pages, Terry Henry tackles the hardmen, we look at all the media stars in season 5, double FA we're watching you, and more opinions than you could ever hope for; a star team of writers and all for free. Football heaven

Sports Minister, the honourable Kate Ellis writes the opening piece.

So sign up for Half-Time Heroes, out next Wednesday.

Half-Time Heroes join the voice of Australian Football!
