Our hearts go out to Aidan Brown's family for our poor little U10's player who passed away last weekend after a long and brave battle. So so sad.
Pls click here to view the FaceBook page that provided support to Aidan & his family during his illness.
His struggle touched many people and his resilience was inspiring. As a club, one of the best things we did in 2014 was to work with Sydney FC to organise Aiden's walkon with Sydney FC at Leichhardt Oval. So pleasing he had that great moment with his brother and Dad and all his team mates. Our thoughts are with Robert, Dawn and Riley.

A very interesting email was received from Eddie Moore, CEO Football NSW on Community Impact of Football in NSW.
This is highly relevant to our Spaces to Play Campaign as it details, for the first time, the economic, health and social contribution of grassroots football. Please take the time to read the attached reports.
The report’s authors estimate the total annual economic contribution of grassroots football in NSW is more than $417 million per annum.
