Cockburn Gazette - - WAFL -

A GROUP of bud­ding foot­ball play­ers joined South Fre­man­tle Foot­ball Club (SFFC) great Stephen Michael and other past and present play­ers as part of a spe­cial In­dige­nous Round week­end run by the SFFC’s Stephen Michael Foun­da­tion.

The group en­joyed ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing a break­fast, a play­ers train­ing ses­sion with an ad­dress by Michael, and a meet and greet with the play­ers.

Michael, who reg­u­larly makes the trip back to his old club, said it was an im­por­tant week­end for chil­dren to im­merse them­selves in the wider com­mu­nity through ed­u­ca­tion and sport.

“Ed­u­ca­tion al­ways comes first and sport sec­ond,” he said.

The group fin­ished their week­end with a half-time match against Ko­jonup as part of the Ea­gles and St Kilda In­dige­nous Round match at Optus Sta­dium.
