NQ Fury FC down the Brisbane Roar 1-0 in Townsville

Shot my first game of professional football (soccer) at the weekend.  The newly established North Queensland Fury FC took on the Brisbane Roar in a pre-season match in their home city of Townsville.  The Fury won the game 1-0 thanks to an own goal by Socceroo fullback Craig Moore.  Here’s a couple of snaps from the game…  The season proper kicks off in Townsville on 8th August.

Day 2 of the Townsville 400

Today for me was day 2 of the Townsville 400 but it was the first official day of ‘cars on track’.  Premier Anna Bligh and former Liverpool star Robbie ‘God’ Fowler had “hot laps” which was probably the highlight picture wise.  The photographer positions to actually shoot the race are terrible, normally there are actual cut-outs in the fencing to allow us to shoot through with long lenses but at the Townsville track there are virtually none at all.  Hopefully the track staff will come through tonight with angle grinders and give us better access tomorrow… Fingers crossed!

Here’s a few pics from today.  Click on them to see a bigger version.

Family fun day with the NQ Fury FC

Shot a job on Saturday for the North Queensland Fury FC who are making their debut in Australia’s A-League this season.  Was a beautiful day at Riverway with thousands of Townsville families making the most of the winter weather.  Spotted football tricksters Colin and Chris and shot a quick iPhone video of them, pretty cool!

Here’s a few pics from the day
