About Pint of Football

Forged in the heady days of the Staffordshire University performing arts department 2010-2013, a partnership that spans the breadth of England from the West Country mudflats of Severn Beach to the Humberside clifftops of Flamborough.

Daz and Tom began watching non-league football together in 2015 when their respective clubs Macclesfield Town and Bristol Rovers eked out an ill-tempered draw at the Moss Rose. Since that fateful day they have been on a never ending quest to sample the delights of world football in it’s most rustic forms and gleefully light a bottle rocket in the pristine en suite bathroom of traditional groundhopping.

From Stafford to Dundalk, Shepton Mallet to Connah’s Quay, Prague to Friuli. Since COVID-19 has prevented us from meeting up in person, we have started up our own Podcast which features a variety of subjects, to put it politely.

So if you enjoy errant West Country ball-boying, North Korean internationals turning up in Slough, Oranjeboom fuelled public transport disasters and Somerset County League wonder goals, you might be able to tolerate Pint of Football!

Daz Knapton

Daz Knapton

Born and raised on the windy cliff tops of East Yorkshire, Daz grew up in Flamborough Head - a village that has more pubs than people! Throughout his 90’s youth he was surrounded by Man United, Leeds, Newcastle and Arsenal fans (or Hull City fans as they were all called when they played the odd season in the Premier League!) and despite being a massive supporter of the game in general, it wasn’t until 2010 when Daz left Yorkshire that he would find himself a club to support. That club, Macclesfield Town, sadly folded in 2020 but his passion for groundhopping has remained as a result of following the Silkmen around the nation. Since then, the founder of ‘Pint of Football’ has been dedicating his spare time to podcasting with Tom, volunteering with CONIFA North America & Caribbean, writing for FM group ‘Dictate the Game’ and helping out Sporting Khalsa FC between lockdowns.

Tom Meadowcroft

Tom is a West Country bloke and despite his huge love for the beautiful game, he was actually a fairly late bloomer when it came to developing his footballing taste buds. After a three year hiatus in Stoke-on-Trent, Tom returned back home to Bristol from Uni and has since followed his beloved Rovers through one relegation and two promotions, whilst also being involved with their women’s team, as well as Bristol Manor Farm and currently Roman Glass St George- Bristol’s oldest club! Tom and Daz have been pals since their time at Staffs Uni began in 2010 and to mark ten years of brotherhood PoF was expanded to become the legendary double-act you see before you now. Prior to that, there was also individual success within the Groundhopping blog community with ‘Partizan Bristle’ and this is one of the main inspirations behind ‘Pint of Football’.
