Auckland football enthusiasts are invited to a movie night at Takapuna AFC’s clubrooms to watch a special screening of an award-winning football film.

The Bafta-winning Marvellous will screen for members of Takapuna AFC and Friends of Football, and their guests, on Wednesday June 23, 2021, starting at 7.30pm.

Admission is free on a first-come-first-served basis, and the movie is recommended for a 15+ audience.

Marvellous tells the true story of Neil ‘Nello’ Baldwin who became a key member of Stoke City’s backroom staff in the 1980s – and a club legend.

Played by actor Toby Jones, ‘Nello’ became a legend in English football. His story is inspiring and is proof that in football, anything is possible.

  • Friends of Football want to hear from Auckland and Waikato clubs who would like to screen this movie for their members. Please email us for more details.
