ABOUT


The Football Sack is a voluntary website that aims to combine quality reporting with irreverence and humour - using social media and the internet to build and improve upon the coverage of the Hyundai A-league and football in Australia.


The Sack plays host to a growing number of writers from across Australia. One of our primary objectives is to increase exposure for young journalists and allow them to grow their sports writing portfolio.


Along with news articles, match reports and other written content, The Football Sack commentates every game of the Hyundai A-League live through our @TheFootballSack account which in 2012 won the FFDU Award for Best Use of Social Media.


Our podcast, now in its third year featuring over 100 episodes, has won Best Football Podcast two years running in the FFDU Awards (2011/2012).

Sam McInerney, Contributor
Sam is from Adelaide and had been a football fanatic forever. Growing up with that damned catchy 1998 ‘Cup of Life’ song and Roberto Baggio’s sweet mullet, Sam is a true lover of the world game. He might be better at football with a Playstation remote in his hand, but he's been known to put his left-foot to good use and chip in with a goal or assist on occasion.

Tom Moxey, Contributor
After dabbling his interest in many sports throughout his juvenile years, Tom settled on football during the brisk winter of 2004 where he fell deeply in love with the Arsenal Football Club. He now spends most of his time at Parramatta Stadium watching his beloved Wanderers and occasionally writes a bit as well.

Matt Dorman, Contributor
Matt's appearance suggests he could probably fool his way into a beloved playmaking role for an U12 side, though he fears his athleticism would still be found wanting. Instead, he hopes his Communication degree will help land a job in football. He supports Brisbane Roar, Leeds United and colour television.

A quick, small, slightly built, left footed traditional number ten (think Maradona but better).

Chris Layland, W-League Contributor
Chris grew up sports. It was his life and his escape from the real world. As a soccer player he was a winger with speed to burn. As a parent he coaches the ‘girls’ and loves it. Chris would like to see soccer in Australia as the “sport of choice for females”.
