Matt Zurbo’s a writer, footballer, journey-man. His off-season odyssey of 2011-12 took him from southern Australia to the northern tip of Queensland, as he sought work and footy grounds. It being the off-season, the scoreboards were bare boards but Matt’s photos still evoke a sense of place, and footy.

Matt’s off-season odyssey was chronicled on The Footy Almanac website. Lively writing from a bloke who loves his footy and his ute.
